Technical Strategy for Recruiting Medical Technologists & Clinical Lab Scientists
Today, nearly every hospital has a need for an ASCP Certified MLT or MT, also known as an MLS or in states such as California and New York (CLS). As a result, recruiters and human resource departments are scrambling to fill the void.
Currently Lab recruiting nationally is one of the most “difficult to staff”positions in the US. Recruiters in the space, including us, are applying best practices daily to keep pace with the constant and ever changing marketplace. One of the ways that we stay in front of CLS/MLS prospects is to utilize Clinical Lab Scientist job boards like the ASCLS. Some of our open positions are marketed through channels including but not limited to; online ads, major job boards, LinkedIn (most connected in lab), direct mail, email and most importantly through our vested referral networks. Candidates may also receive a referral bonus for introducing us to their peers. Our most successful campaign is a combination of our recruiters utilizing our intricate database that we’ve compiled over the last two decades.
