Endocrine Society Hosts Virtual Career Fair September 24

The coronavirus pandemic has created a lot of uncertainty for endocrinologists who are entering the job market or planning their next career move. Social distancing guidelines and bans on large group gatherings have also made in-person networking and communicating with potential employers a challenge.

To help job seekers find new opportunities during this difficult time, the Endocrine Society is hosting a Virtual Career Fair on September 24. This online recruitment event will connect endocrinologists with private practice employers, group practices, hospitals, health systems, and other recruiters around the country.

“The virtual fair is a great opportunity to find potential employers but also to network and guide others about different opportunities,” says Ricardo Correa, MD, of the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Phoenix. Correa is attending the Virtual Career Fair as a mentor to guide early-career endocrinologists on entering the job search.

“The Endocrine Society virtual career fair offers a diversity of opportunities for future jobs in different areas like academic and research that other fairs don’t offer.” – Ricardo Correa, MD, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Phoenix

During the three-hour virtual event, job seekers can browse employer profiles and general endocrinology and subspecialty positions. Attendees will be able to visit different virtual booths, chat with recruiters, and network with colleagues and mentors.

“The Endocrine Society virtual career fair offers a diversity of opportunities for future jobs in different areas like academic and research that other fairs don’t offer,” Correa says. “I hope to hear what opportunities are out there in the area of clinical research and to guide some of the fellows and junior faculties on deciding their first job and move in their career path.”
