Important Covid-19 Message For Candidates From Our President

Tony Stajduhar
March 27, 2020


Just when I thought I’d seen it all, COVID-19 hit. I continue to be inspired by the way you, other healthcare workers, and first responders are responding to this crisis. Your dedication doesn’t really surprise me. But it seems when life is most difficult and people need help, you are the very people who transform into superheroes right before our eyes. It’s remarkable.

I want to reassure you that our entire Jackson Physician Search team is working overtime – day and night – to support you. One of our guiding values is to be an ‘Others First’ organization, so if you receive a call or email from us, I hope you will trust that our intent is not to be disrespectful or insensitive.

By nature, recruiters are great listeners. We want to listen and meet your needs – even if what you need most at the moment is to vent about the day’s challenges! We are committed to being the best matchmakers in the industry, but if in trying to meet your immediate needs, we happen to catch you at an inopportune moment, please let us know. We will always respect your wishes.

Our team has transitioned to a fully functional work-from-home model, allowing them to continue to connect you to our hundreds of clients across the nation – uninterrupted. We will continue to provide Nordstrom-level service and to think outside-the-box. We have been asked to adapt our process and assist with complying to new hospital policies. Some of these changes may include scheduling video interviews, or scheduling interviews outside of the medical campus.

Hopefully, sooner, rather than later, this crisis will pass. And as we all know, there is already a physician shortage that COVID-19 isn’t going to improve. While you focus on you and your family’s most pressing needs, we’re still focused on your future career goals.

I am praying for everyone daily, and our thoughts are with you and your family – please take care of yourself and feel welcome to call us at any point. Together, we will get through this and, hopefully, come away with valuable lessons learned.

Be well,

Tony Stajduhar
