- Have an updated copy of your CV ready. This may seem like commonsense, however we suggest you consider this common practice in a new way. Paper CVs can be easily misplaced as hundreds of candidates pass through an exhibitor's booth. How can you make sure yours is remembered? Consider having a copy of your CV saved via Dropbox on your smartphone. After you engage with a recruiter or potential employer, obtain their email address and let them know you'll be sending it as an attachment by email shortly. This acts as an instant follow-up to your conversation and ensures that the recruitment process won't be delayed once you step away from the booth.
- Set up interviews for during ACEP before you arrive. There's really no other way to ensure you're spending your time at ACEP in the most effective way. Our network of independent, physician-owned emergency medicine groups will have physician leadership in attendance at ACEP and ready to speak with you. We've even dedicated an entire 10 x 10 booth to interviews.
