Through continual efforts to provide resources for qualified health care professionals exploring a career at VA, recruiter contact pages are the newest addition to VACareers.va.gov. The new experience was designed with the goal of providing a more intuitive way of connecting people to their destinations on the career site.

For physicians who visit the career site, there is a landing page that outlines information about what it is like to be a physician at VA, opportunities for career growth, job search and, now, a link that directs physicians to Physician Recruiters in the area they wish to practice in, for a personalized answer to questions or for help through the application process.

For Veterans, the Veteran landing page provides information on training, Veterans programs and educational support, along with a search for Regional Veteran Employment Coordinators who can help Veterans transition to a career.

Both the Veteran and Physician Recruiter pages now allow candidates to easily find the recruiter designated to their region by entering their state within the “Recruiter Search” function. The candidate then has access to the recruiter’s contact information – including e-mail, phone, LinkedIn, and even Twitter!

The VA Careers site is built on a responsive platform, therefore, all search features are viewable on laptops, tablets and smartphones, to ensure ease of use for those seeking information about a career at VA.

To begin your job search today, visit VACareers.va.gov.

    One of the big problems in the agency is the hiring of ‘Friends & Family.’ So, the best qualified isn’t hired. This occurs at VAMCs and at Regional Offices. (forget all about the veterans preference policy because agency will work around). Who does it hurts in the long run? The Veteran. The funny thing is that management that allow this to happen don’t honestly care about the veteran. It’s all about the position they hold.

    I am a veteran who was trained to fight and my parents taught me to love my country. I served 8 years and afterward became a medical doctor. While in residency I found my self defending our way of life and our military 2000 to 2007, from liberal views of academics and outright foreigners with no service to our country training to be physicians in our country. Program directors did not appreciate my stance on our country’s wars and actions and decided to get rid of me. I completed enough training to obtain a license but now the same medical industry, many times led by foreigners in our veterans institutions are blocking me from serving as a medical officer in VA and other federal organizations. The credentialing process is designed to screen any physicians with malpractice and judgments against them from practicing. I have neither one of those. I simply have statements in my record in a few evaluations that reflect my bullheadedness and fighting spirit. Veterans Affairs needs to open their eyes and help our own to get ahead. Our secretary visits medical institutions and recruits there our Docs. We came through the ranks, fought our way and defended our colors but haven’t gotten reciprocity from our veteran medical institutions. Not many veterans leave the service and become doctors and I understand that. But we are here outside looking in and need headquarters to help us. Thanks.

    It is my belief that many well-qualified professionals may be afraid to work for the VETERANS Administration, & the blame falls smack dab in the face of the two entities named. The Administration is now openly plagued by the stigma created by the “regimes” of the past, & the angry, outspoken veterans they have failed in every aspect of the word. The fact that it is run by the U.S. gov’t is, in my opinion, strike three! Unfortunately, the gov’t will probably never change; not for another 1 1/2 yrs at least, so it is up to US to show anyone interested in a career at the VETERANS Administration that, under Secretary McDonald’s watch, the Administration IS going to change FOR THE BETTER. Then, brothers & sisters, WE have to try & show some support for the people that want to help us. I know it is hard; I try to stay positive, but I wait for my appts too, just to be rushed thru like a cattle auction, but I am thankful for what I do have. Please take a moment & try to think of 1 good experience at the VA to write about in this blog. Let the “newbies” see that WE are trying, too.
