A new year is here, and many of us will be reviewing what we learned in 2014 to better our lives and our careers in 2015. Traditionally, January and February are peak recruitment/hiring months with a significant advantage to the earliest applicants. Industry analysts are predicting anywhere from a 3-5% growth rate for healthcare professions. In particular, Physical Therapist Assistants and Occupational Therapy Assistants will enjoy a significant increase in the demand for their services, along with a substantial uptick in temp/contract positions across the sector. The major factors contributing to this demand for services continues to be Baby Boomers reaching retirement age at an astonishing 8,000 a day and the expansion of those insured under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
However, healthcare professionals shouldn’t assume that high demand equals automatic hiring. As always such a trend translates to multiple candidates applying for multiple positions through multiple resources. One of the best ways to get a leg up on such competition is to use a qualified staffing firm. At Centra we specialize in providing services tailored to each individual’s personal and professional requirements, supporting you every step of the way in the process. With cutting edge technology and our exclusive relationships with many employers, we streamline your job search and eliminate wasteful duplicate applications. But it is truly our staff of industry experts that make all the difference in a successful outcome. Call us today at 800 535 0076 and see how a Centurion can help you find new opportunities in healthcare!
