By 2030, there will be a global shortage of more than 85 million tech workers, according to one recent estimate. That means opportunity—and choices—for job seekers.
If you’ve got marketable IT skills, and a reasonably polished resume or LinkedIn profile, then you’ve probably noticed that recruiters want to be your best friend. In a world where qualified IT workers are in short supply, you are in demand. Revel in it.
Our business is to match people like you to consulting or permanent jobs with leading hospitals and healthcare employers. We love what we do, and in a typical year, we talk to tens of thousands of IT professionals.
We know we’re not the only recruiters you talk to, but we do think we’re different from others. We have to be. In a world where skilled HIT professionals have so many choices, we try to be the best choice for your next placement.
How do we do that? Not to brag, but below are some of the reasons consultants tell us they prefer to work with Healthcare IT Leaders over other firms.
Flexible employment options
Some firms will ask (or require) that you work exclusively as a W2 consultant. Consultants working through Healthcare IT Leaders can work as a W2 employee—with benefits—or as an independent contractor. It’s up to you. We also offer permanent placement in addition to contract work. So if you’re a consultant looking to get off the road, we can help in your search for a full-time position.
Our reach is national. We’re one of the fastest -growing IT firms in the country (five consecutive years on the Inc 5000) and we offer a large cross-section of jobs across the U.S., giving you more choices. We’ll market you to some of the best employers and hottest projects in the industry, but only with your permission. Because we know you hate it when firms share your resume without your consent.
Our name, Healthcare IT Leaders, says what we do. We’re healthcare IT experts, so we understand you and the type of work you do. That’s important and beneficial for our consultants—and for our clients.
Ease of payment
We think you should get paid promptly and without hassles. We’re on a bi-weekly payment cycle, with a direct deposit option, and we’ve never missed a payroll. We won’t hold up your expenses either. Those are paid bi-weekly as well.
Unlimited referral cash
If you help us by referring a friend or colleague, we’ll make sure you get rewarded. Our referral bonuses—up to $3,500 per placement—are among the most generous in the industry. And there are no limits on how many referral bonuses you can earn.
Our consultants earn reward points after 2,000 consulting hours that are redeemable for thousands of items in our online shopping portal, including appliances, smartphones, televisions, resort vacations, jewelry and more. The Consultant Rewards program is exclusive to Healthcare IT Leaders. Pretty cool, right?
Consulting requires a support team, and ours is one of the best. We help you from the interview through placement and beyond to make things like travel and expense reporting as simple as possible. We even have a full-time Happiness Coordinator who checks in regularly to ensure consultant satisfaction.
We work hard to maintain a reputation as one of the industry's best employers for consultants. Our internal surveys show a 95% consultant satisfaction rating, and the employee reviews on independent job sites like GlassDoor and Indeed are a further testament to our supportive culture.
