Meet Zac, an experienced Allied Healthcare Recruiter and Recruiter Mentor at Core.

Tell us about yourself:

I proudly hold the title of Senior Recruiter and was recently promoted as a Recruiter Mentor at Core. Throughout my two-year journey, I've carved out a distinctive niche within the healthcare recruitment field. Notably, I was honored with the Club CoreMed award last year, in recognition of my dedicated contributions. Beyond my professional commitments, I enjoy golfing, spending quality moments with loved ones, and engaging in intense chess battles. My strengths include exceptional organizational skills and a knack for creative problem-solving, traits that underpin my recruitment journey.

Q2: What inspired you to pursue a career in healthcare recruitment, and how has it influenced your professional journey?

Despite starting out with limited recruitment knowledge, the alignment of my values with Core's mission led me to discover my true passion. As I reflect, joining Core has proven to be a serendipitous turning point. My interest in the healthcare field and the discovery of my recruitment aptitude set the  layout for my remarkable journey.

Q3: What is the most memorable or rewarding experience you've had while recruiting?

Among the dynamic attributes of being a recruiter, one thing remains constant—the impact I have on the lives of healthcare professionals. The most rewarding moments for me stem from heartfelt feedback I receive from individuals who embark on new assignments. Witnessing the joy and contentment they express as they recount their positive experiences within their assignments is so fulfilling  to me.

Q4: What qualities do your candidates possess that allow them to truly shine in the healthcare industry?

When considering the qualities that set candidates apart in the healthcare domain, I emphasize attributes like work ethic, adaptability, and communication skills. In the dynamic healthcare industry, possessing these qualities empowers professionals to navigate challenges with poise and establish meaningful connections with colleagues, supervisors, and patients. Additionally, it makes a huge difference when clinicians I work work with have goals that align with Core's mission. This leads to long lasting connections and placement opportunities. 

Q5: What strategies do you use to ensure a successful match between healthcare professionals and their respective roles?

The goal of aligning healthcare professionals with roles that complement their skills and aspirations is a must. I believe in transparent communication. I work to provide all necessary information to travelers and offer guidance on potential interview queries. This approach cultivates mutual understanding and equips both parties with the tools needed to thrive in their new role.

Q6: How do you stay updated on the latest trends and developments in the industry to better serve traveling healthcare professionals?

My commitment to serving candidates shows in my proactive approach to staying informed of the latest industry trends. Our management team keeps us updated on industry developments. Furthermore, I pay close attention to feedback from travelers, using their insights as invaluable touchpoints to get a grasp on the evolving demands of the healthcare field.

When it comes to healthcare recruitment, Zac emerges as a wealth of expertise and empathy. With his experience, dedication to transparent communication, and passion for the healthcare sector, Zac embodies the qualities that distinguish an exceptional recruiter. His journey not only mirrors his personal growth but also the positive influence he has had on the lives of healthcare professionals and the broader industry. As Zac continues on his professional development, his commitment stands as an inspiration to all those striving for greatness in the healthcare recruitment field.
