A dental hygienist posted on LinkedIn the other day about employers posting anonymous dental hygiene job openings.
I have to admit, it’s a big pet peeve of mine not knowing who I am applying for a job with – am I alone there? It almost seems like there should be a law against that.
What if I don’t like that office or if they are vague in the location of it and I don’t want to work there – it’s a waste of my time and theirs.
So what can you do about it?
Unfortunately, not a lot, but there is one thing I have done that works about 50 percent of the time.
It’s called Google and depending on how much information they put in the advertisement, you can sometimes figure out who it is.
So, look for a fax number or e-mail address, or even physical mailing address. Highlight and copy it, open Google and search it. I’ve done this hundreds of times for dental jobs for clients and have come up with the name of the practice or doctor about half the time.
Give it a try next time you are surfing through job openings and then use that information (about the office) to better discover what their problem is and how you can be a solution to it. See my articles earlier this week for more information on how to do that.
