Round Rock, TX, February 26, 2009. Bob Eskridge, President of Eskridge & Associates can add “published author” to his long list of credentials with the release of his first book, So You Always Wanted to Be A Physician Recruiter: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Physician Recruiting, published through AuthorHouse.com.
So You Always Wanted to be a Physician Recruiter describes the world of physician recruiting – a potentially lucrative field in which recruiters have the opportunity to help others better their lives through meaningful employment. Designed for both new recruiters and experienced professionals, the book guides recruiters through all aspects of the business, from identifying leads to following up after placement, while helping new recruiters to develop positive work habits and an optimistic, productive attitude.
Throughout the book is a message of positive reinforcement and a focus on ethical treatment of both candidates and clients. One chapter is devoted to the ethics of the industry, and Eskridge provides many ideas for upholding integrity in the recruiting industry. By taking a respectful approach to the profession, this book is a valuable tool for experienced and novice recruiters.
Bob Eskridge says, “The purpose of this book was to address the training needs of the independent, third party physician recruiter. I had been approached several times over the years to providing training to folks with all levels of experience in the industry. Although there is excellent training on staffing and recruiting in general, there really was nothing out there that addressed the specific issues facing the independent physician recruiter. With the encouragement of some of my industry colleagues, I took the training materials from all the courses and seminars I attended and applied to the physician recruiting world and organized it in this book. I am very proud of my first effort at developing a book and look forward to my next one. The book can be purchased immediately through www.authorhouse.com”
