From Recruited to Recruiter
Written by | July 18, 2017 | News
It wasn’t long ago that I was in the position of many of those I interview daily. Looking for new opportunities while balancing another job, looking for the flexibility to work when I wanted, where I wanted and how often I wanted. In a world of buzz words and worn out phrases like “fast-paced environment”, finding a company which matched my employment needs, but more importantly my wants as employee was a difficult venture. Following my interview with Complete Mobile Dentistry, this false choice between my employment wants and my employment needs were finally over.
It’s not just about the many amenities of the job (which I assure you are nice), rather, it is an underlying sense of shared purpose which drives the work within our organization and gets me out of bed in the morning. In short, it is a self-recognition of being a member of something bigger than yourself. At every level within our organization, we understand very clearly who it is that we serve. We have been blessed with the opportunities afforded to us as a subcontractor for the U.S. Armed Forces and we view it as a tremendous privilege to have such a rewarding partnership.
I often say, during the recruiting process we can’t all be soldiers, but we all can serve. When it comes to recruiting, I have a firm sense of the type of character I am seeking in a potential employee of Complete Mobile Dentistry. Selfless, dedicated, professional and charitable. These are the values we hold at Complete Mobile Dentistry and these are the values we measure applicants by.
I am fortunate in the sense that many of those applying with us already have an established career within the dental field, so their devotion often speaks for itself. Yet, it takes a unique kind of person to be willing to travel, to be willing to perform in unfamiliar environments such as military facilities and to be willing to proactively seek such opportunities. From this perspective, I rest assured that our dental professionals can be placed anywhere (including openings for private practice on the Complete Dental Staffing side) and excel at what they do.
Complete Mobile Dentistry is a truly unique company in the sense that not only do we service military events but through our Complete Dental Staffing division we use that strong foundation in staffing military events to expand our services to also include placing dentists, hygienists and assistants in both temporary and permanent positions in private offices as well. There are countless staffing agencies, who do place staff for office positions, however, the key difference is that professionals who join our team are employees of ours and often remain so even after they have been placed. This is because of the flexibility they have by working with us for either military events or temp placements when it aligns with their schedule.
