PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES OF AN EMR RECRUITER:
An EMR recruiter is someone engaging in recruitment, which is
the solicitation of individuals to fill jobs or positions within
any group in an Electronic Medical Records environment. EMR recruiters
can be divided into two groups; those working internally for one
organization, and those working for multiple clients in a third-party
broker relationship, sometimes called headhunters or agency recruiters.
An internal EMR recruiter (alternatively in-house recruiter or
corporate recruiter) is member of a company or organization and
typically works in human resources (HR), which in the past was
known as the Personnel Office, or just Personnel. Internal EMR
recruiters may be multi-functional, serving in an HR generalist
role (negotiating, hiring, firing, exit interviews, employee disputes,
contracts, benefits, recruiting, etc.) or in a specific role focusing
all their time on the activity of recruiting. They can be permanent
employees or hired as contractors for this purpose. Contract EMR
recruiters tend to move around between multiple companies working
at each one for a short stint as needed for specific hiring purposes.
The responsibility of the EMR recruiter is to filter the candidate
as per the requirement of the client.
A third party EMR recruiter or an employment agency acts as an
independent contact between their client companies and the candidates
they recruit for a position. An EMR Recruiter can specialize in
client relationships only, and in finding candidates. Most EMR
recruiters tend to specialize in permanent or full-time, direct
hire positions or contract positions, but occasionally in both.
An executive search firm is a type of employment agency that
specializes in EMR Recruiters for companies in various industries.
EMR Recruiters typically have a wide range of personal contacts
within the area in question, a detailed specific knowledge of
said area, and typically operate at the most senior level. EMR
recruiters are also involved throughout more of the hiring process,
conducting detailed interviews as well as only presenting candidates
to clients where they feel the candidate in question will fit
into the employment culture of the client. EMR Recruiters typically
have long-lasting relationships with clients spanning many years,
and in such cases the suitability of candidates is paramount.
It is also important that such EMR Recruiters operate with a high
level of professionalism.
