There are job seekers who research company e-mail addresses and spam them with their resumes with the hopes of getting a job. These techniques won’t help you land an interview with LUMEDX, a medical software company in Bellevue, says Josh Jozwik, a technical recruiter for the company.

Jozwik says job seekers need to avoid the traditional job-hunting techniques if they’re looking to get an interview with his company. Here are other things he says job seekers should avoid:

Cover letters: Most cover letters sent to LUMEDX offer little or no value to Josh or his hiring team. Many cover letters he sees tend to be templates found on traditional resume books. If you’re going to send a cover letter, Josh suggests you send a short paragraph and bullet list on how your accomplishments might meet the company’s objectives. If there are shortcomings on your resume, this is the opportunity to address them. 

Applying for every position listed: There is a misconception that if you send enough resumes to a company, you might get their attention. Applying for every position listed shows that you’re desperate, you lack a sense of career direction, and are just trying to meet your unemployment numbers. Quality is more important than quantity, says Jozwik.

The number of resumes in LUMEDX’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS) has grown by over 60 percent in the last two years alone. Josh and his team are inundated. While the openings are scarce, the techniques shared below can help you land an interview with his company:

LinkedIn introductions: Josh is connected to 90 percent of the staff in Bellevue. If you’re hoping to get an informational meeting with the company, chances are you’ll have to go through him. While you could use job boards or apply on the company website directly, Jozwik is a big advocate of LinkedIn introductions. See if you know someone who can vouch for you and introduce you to the company.

LinkedIn discussions: Jozwik and his team monitor certain LinkedIn groups carefully and reach out to interesting participants. Visit Josh's profile, notice which groups he’s a member of and join them. Review the questions and comments other members are posting on these groups and contribute your expertise. Your involvement can help you shine with LUMEDX and other corporations monitoring these sources.

Employee referral: While it’s impossible for the company to look at every resume submitted for each position, they take their referrals seriously. In fact on their career site, they have a tool called “Are you on LinkedIn: Do you know anyone at LUMEDX?” By clicking on this tool, you can see who you might already know who can introduce you to the company.

If you’re a technology professional with medical experience and you use the techniques mentioned above, your odds have greatly increased in getting an interview with the company.

This week was a special one for LUMEDX and many of our users. Converging in San Francisco's Hotel Nikko in the days before NCDR.13 and ACC.13, users of LUMEDX software arrived from all over the United States to network, learn about new updates to the product suite and get some additional training. 

It was also a chance for those of us at LUMEDX to spend some time connecting and reconnecting with our end users in person. Many of our clients may be familiar with Senior Product Education Trainer John Nicholls, Clinical Registries Manager Katrina Craig and Senior Marketing & Events Coordinator Joelle Mitchell (who organizes this event and is omnipresent during ACC week!). Users also heard from Senior Director of Client Relations/Inside and Vertical Sales Gwen Korney, Nicole Blalock of John Muir Health, Vice President of Client Satisfaction Bill Gazda and Practice Director of Analytics Consulting Gus Gilbertson. 

We hope our attendees found this year’s conference educational and enjoyable. See you all again next year.

Vast Majority of Surveyed Hospitals Experience Breaches

Ninety-four percent of hospitals responding to a recent survey experienced a data breach in the past two years, according to the Ponemon Institute. Forty-five percent of these hospitals indicated that their data was breached more than five times – an increase from 2010 when the percentage of respondents indicating more than five breaches was 29 percent.

With the potential for penalties under HIPAA, the cost of notifying stakeholders and civil suite awards, the possibility these hospitals could be stuck with millions in costs due to data breaches is staggering.

Even more discouraging, those hospitals that had not joined a health information exchange (HIE) cite low or lack of confidence in data security as the number one reason they were reluctant to share information within organizations.

As the move to electronic health records (EHR) continues, what measures is your organization taking to ensure patient data security?
