hc4426 in Brunswick, Georgia said: Hello, I am a recent grad. I have hand delivered my resume to pretty much every dental office in my town. My question is how long should I wait before going back to each office to give my resume out again??
While I am giving out resumes I do ask if they are hiring. None of them are so I tell them I can fill in. After one month I have filled in once, and had a working interview. Can anyone give me any tips on how to get offices to want to use me as fill in?
Hello, It's tough in the DH field now, as we can see by what you've just posted. Are you on a Temp Ag list at all? Some have put a freeze on hiring any if no experience, but keep trying. Also, meet with an agency if possible to give them your resume and put a "face" with it. Sometimes it works, worth looking in to. I would call any of the offices that do have the occasional fill-in, mind you...they want speed, most prophy's , etc. work on a 45min.- 1hour schedule. Do you have any DA skills? Or are you willing to gopher to get into an office to see the running of their practice(s)? See if they are willing to have you come in and shadow or assist in other capacities. GL P.S. If you are able to obtain a license in a nearby state (if you are close enough to travel/decent driving time), I'd recommend looking into that too.
