In most cases, any hours worked over 40 during a seven-day period is considered overtime and will be compensated at the overtime rate (usually 1.5 times that of your regular pay rate).

Q.  Should I Use a Recruiter?
Developing strong ties with an experienced Career Consultant can pay off for your career over the long haul. Many of the most desirable companies rely exclusively on us for assistance in finding exceptional talent, especially in the tight healthcare job market.

Q.  At what career point should I contact a Recruiter?
Ted French, Founder and President of Acclivity Healthcare with over 20 years of experience in the recruiting and staffing industry, offers this advice on how to initiate and nurture lasting relationships with recruitment professionals:

"It's beneficial to build relationships with a recruiter throughout your entire career. A good place to start is online using Acclivity Healthcare's website. You can create and make updates to your online profile and resume as your career progresses – for example, if you get new responsibilities in your current position, receive a promotion, join a professional organization, change companies, or even relocate."

"You can also contact us by telephone or make an appointment to come into our office to speak with a Career Consultant in person. However you contact us, it is important for us to fully understand all the components of your experience, background, attributes, goals, personality and passion to determine the best long term match to your career goals. We want to know the qualities that your 'dream job' consists of so that we can assist you in reaching your career goals."

Q.  How should I describe my expectations without seeming unrealistic?
As you convey what you're looking for in your next position, it's very important to share ALL of your expectations. The last thing we want is to not be on the same page. Feel free to share your expectations, your goals and add to that why you think they're warranted based on your skills and the value you'll bring to the position.
