When you’re on the job hunt, it can often feel like what you know isn’t enough for most employers. While it would be inaccurate to state that who you know is more important than your skills when looking for vascular ultrasound jobs, having a strong network certainly creates more opportunities for you to explore.

Students and those new to the medical profession may struggle to build their networks. Even some experienced professionals struggle with this aspect of medicine. That’s why we’re here to offer some networking tips that may help you land a vascular ultrasound job.

Networking Can Happen Anywhere

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that the people you meet at your hospital, or during medical trade events, are the only people who can introduce you to new opportunities. You never know who others may be able to put you in touch with.

Whenever you meet people in any sort of professional setting, be polite and ask questions. The key is to make a good impression, and to let people know what you do for a living. This will raise the chances of you coming to mind if a new opportunity arises.

Talk to Potential Employers

This is a particularly important tip for students. At various points during your studies, medical professionals may come to your school to hold lectures, or to discuss your career path with you. Job fairs and lectures offer you a great opportunity to learn, but they’re also ideal networking events.

If an experienced professional makes their way to your school, try to create an opportunity to speak to them one-on-one. Talk about your aspirations and ask for their advice. You never know. This early networking effort may impress the professional enough to think of you when a job opportunity arises.

Get on LinkedIn

Social media is immensely important in the modern business and work environment, with none being better than LinkedIn when it comes to work. With over 500 million members, LinkedIn offers you the opportunity to build a network, speak to key medical industry influencers, and share your own opinions in an effort to build your own authority.

Creating a profile isn’t enough to use LinkedIn to its fullest. Read articles, connect with people, and start conversations. As with face-to-face networking, your aims are to make an impression and tell people who you are. Write articles and share opinions that demonstrate your knowledge of vascular ultrasound work.

Join a Professional Society

Once you’ve developed some experience, a professional ultrasound or radiography society may offer you a pathway into a new role. These societies generally bring professionals from all over the country together, allowing them to share knowledge and learn along the way.

Naturally, this also means that you’ll have the opportunity to speak to others about their work, and any opportunities they could present to you. Having society membership also means people will trust you, which raises the chances of them talking to you about potential job openings.

Of course, networking isn’t all there is to it. Check out our vascular ultrasound jobs page today to see if there are any openings in your area.
