The TCMS Job Board offers a place to post open positions and a place to search for just the right employment opportunity in the health care industry.

 

Jobseekers: Now is the time to get in front of employers looking to hire for 2012. Post a resume/CV and view job openings at no cost. This anonymous system allows you to put your information in front of companies who are hiring – without sharing your name and information. Employers notify prospective employees through a secure email system, then you decided whether or not to release your contact information.

 

Upload or update your resume on the TCMS Job Board by December 31 and you will be entered for a chance to win an iPad.

 

Employers: View resumes/CVs to recruit highly relevant and qualified candidates at no cost on the TCMS Job Board. Resumes/CVs can be purchased on a pay per candidate model for a nominal fee – you are only charged if a candidate accepts your request to connect to discuss the open position.

 

Post job openings on niche job boards that will attract the right talent – whether you are hiring for one person or an entire team. Pricing and packages are available online.

Thanks go out to the TCMS physicians, Alliance members, and their families who volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank on Saturday, November 12. Because of their efforts, 19,440 pounds of food was sorted which translates into 15,552 meals for Central Texans in need of assistance. In addition to volunteering their time, the Travis County Medical Alliance also collected food donations.

 

 

Be prepared, be very prepared. The 2012 Winter Conference on January 27-28 features innovative leaders with insight into the challenges Texas physicians face as a result of health reform. Recommendations will be offered on how to take advantage of new innovations and technologies to improve and streamline models of care and payment. In addition, Texas legislators will be on hand to discuss the 2012 primary elections.
