The Physicians at CGH Medical Center are creating a brand-new Scribe Program for their clinic. They have contracted with our company ScribeAmerica to hire and train their Physician Scribes. Accordingly we are recruiting outstanding
students interested in careers in medicine to begin staffing their program. Our company is the nations largest professional scribe training and management company in the United States and present in over 340 healthcare facilities, in 40 states and employing more than 3600 scribes. We are looking to recruit students to
become part of our team.The job opportunity is called an “Outpatient Physician Scribe;” we act as personal assistants to the physician and perform all of their non-patient-care tasks. These include documentation, patient tracking, organization, and much more. We are looking for extremely motivated, sharp, and adaptable students who perform well in a fast-paced and high-energy environment. Because you will work one-on-one with a board certified physicians for the entirety of their shift you become intimately familiar with the specialty. Additionally you gain first-hand experience documenting exactly like a physician; a skill that is invaluable later for any career in health. There is both theoretical classroom training and applied training live in the outpatient setting. Because of the rigors of training, all hours spent training are paid. Both time in the classroom and time in the clinic are compensated. After training, shifts last 8-10 hours each, and we ask for a minimum of two shifts per week. Additionally, since I personally commit over 100 hours of training for each employee, there is verbal commitment of two years of work for part time employees and one year of work for full time employees. The training starts at $8.00 per hour, and increases to $10.00 per hour after you have proved your ability to work in the outpatient clinic. Additionally we are looking to hire a chief scribe to run the program at this hospital so career opportunities are available for noteworthy candidates.
There are few other opportunities that allow for such direct exposure to medicine: and this opportunity is paid. This job is one of a kind; those who have excelled as scribes have consistently progressed to have successful careers in medicine. If you especially impress a physician they will be happy to provide a strong letter of recommendation for medical school. Additionally the medical terminology acquired during your time as a scribe will put you leagues above your other classmates later in school.
To find out more information visit www.scribeamerica.com or contact me, Allison Miller at cghscribes@scribeamerica.com. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to applicants from your school.

The How-To on Job Fairs



Job fairs, we’ve all been to one, right? Wrong; there are many people who have never been to a job fair and others who have been but don’t know how to make the most out of the experience. That’s what Illinois workNet is here to help you! 

Job fairs are an opportunity for people in any situation to network and potentially find new employment. This is a time where you can find Professionals, Students, Unemployed Individuals, Veterans, and others all gathered together with one goal in mind: SUCCESS!

Some people have no problems making great connections and showing off their talents at a job fair, but others may lack the social skills or knowledge of how job fairs work to fully take advantage of the benefits. There are many resources out there that can help, but it’s hard to target those that are actually helpful and reliable.

Here are tips that can help anyone make the most out of their job fair experience.

Job Fair Preparation:
  1. Pre-Register – Some job fairs require you to register, check out the event website or flyer to find out if you need to and how.
  2. Dress for Success – You will be meeting people who could be potential employers, make a good first impression by dressing business casual or business professional.
  3. Bring Copies of your Updated Resume – Many employers will ask to see your resume, make sure you bring enough copies to go around. Be prepared that some employers cannot accept hard copies of your resume.
  4. Research Employers – Get a list of employers that are going to be at the job fair, research their company so you know a little about them beforehand. Prepare questions to ask them beforehand.
  5. VETERANS – Use Illinois workNet Resources to translate your Military Skills to Civilian Skills so you can let employers will understand what skills you have that could benefit their company.
  6. Create your 30-Second Elevator Speech – This is your opening statement to employers that gives them an idea of where you’ve worked, what skills you have, and how you can benefit their company as an employee.
Tips to stand out:
  1. Time Management – Make sure you allot yourself enough time to make it to all of the booths, or at least those you know you’d like to visit.
  2. Network – Mingle with the other people at the event, not just the employers. Networking includes potential employers, past employers and co-workers.
  3. Get Business Cards – Following up with Potential Employers is your job, make sure you get their business card so you have contact information.
  4. Act Professional – Watch how you act and behave, stand up straight, don’t fidget, do not chew gum, and speak clearly.
  5. Stay Positive – Being with so many others that are also job-searching can be overwhelming, but keeping a positive attitude when engaging with others and the employers will show confidence.
  6. Carry a Folder or Portfolio – Having a folder or portfolio will keep your resume easily accessible while also giving you something to store employer handouts and literature in.
After the Job Fair:
  1. Take Notes – Write down notes about conversations you had, who you spoke to, opportunities you encountered, and anything else you don’t want to forget.
  2. Follow-Up – Now that you’ve made some connections, follow-up with them via email or LinkedIn with a ‘Thank You’ letter. This will ensure employers will remember you while building a relationship with them.
  3. Keep Track – Create a system or spreadsheet that you can use to keep track of employers you’ve contacted, potential job leads, when and how and to who you sent your resume, etc.
Next time you’re at a job fair, make sure to remember these tips so you can put your best foot forward and make the most of it!
