3 Tips When Searching Online for a Chiropractic Associate Job

If you’re ready to take the next step in your chiropractic career, you’re probably going to be searching online for a chiropractic associate job. Knowing where to search can be challenging. Between your state association pages, school classifieds, and Indeed, you may be curious where you can find the best available options for you. You may search based on starting salary, business culture, location, or practice philosophy.

At Chiro Match Makers, you can choose all of the above. Our chiropractic associate job board is super active. You can quickly identify the best available job for you based on several important factors, including a clear indication of salary and practice type. We’ve learned that showing as much information as possible about each open position helps both you and the practice owner save time. But before we go too far, let’s look at three tips you need to keep in mind when searching online for a chiropractic associate job.

1. Use the most dynamic chiropractic job board 

The chiropractic profession is growing rapidly. In the United States alone, there are over 60,000 active chiropractors, which is expected to continue to grow. This means that the competition for excellent chiropractic associate jobs is fierce. 

You are competing with other new graduates, but there are thousands of seasoned veterans in the marketplace. There are many great chiropractors currently in the process of searching for a job. Some are even on their third or fourth search if they have only relied on state association job boards or Indeed in the past. 

I have been there myself. Quite frankly, I found the process of searching for a chiropractic associate position to be pretty frustrating. That’s why we take chiropractic recruiting so seriously at Chiro Match Makers. We do deep research with the practice owner to gather all the information you need to apply very easily and quickly. 

For every chiropractic associate job that we post, our team creates a Practice Snapshot based upon what the owner is looking for and how their practice operates. That means you can quickly identify what the practice expects of their new associate and what you can expect from the practice. This “match-making” is unique to Chiro Match Makers and part of the reason why our chiropractic associates tend to find long-term success rather than churning and burning through a bunch of practices. 

2. Identify what you want in your next chiropractic associate position

When searching online for a chiropractic job, the world can feel like your oyster. But if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it might lead you to a bad situation. Is your technique too specific? Do you need to expand the location of your search? What if you’re you’re looking for a job in a state that you have never practiced? Well, there are a few things to keep in mind when searching for a chiropractic job online.

We recommend you create a list of your ideal practice’s locations, salary, and practice philosophy. This can help you quickly narrow your search and focus on the practices that will most likely be a good fit for your skillset and approach. 

Next, take a moment and reflect on how you would like to spend your days. Are you a Care Giver (80%+ of chiropractors) who would want to spend each day adjusting patients and providing care rather than marketing? CareGivers tend to like fixed salaries and don’t like heavy commission-based pay. Or are you a Business Builder that would like to help grow the practice and be financially rewarded for the effort? Opportunities for both types of chiropractors are available, but if you’ve you’ve never thought it this in the past, we recommend doing so today! By matching your personal practice goals with the job description from the practice, you can avoid a mismatch that can lead to frustration and resentment. 

Our team of recruiters at Chiro Match Makers walks every one of our chiropractic associate candidates through these types of questions so that we can zero in on a perfect fit for the next step in your career. 

3. Sign up to receive real-time updates on new chiropractic associate opportunities

Just because you don’t see your ideal chiropractic associate job today doesn’t mean it won’t be posted tomorrow. Don’t get discouraged when looking for your next opportunity if nothing sticks out on your first search. Sometimes it may take a month or two before you see a job that matches your goals and practice style. 

The best thing you can do is sign up for real-time updates on new chiropractic associate opportunities. By signing up for real-time updates, you’ll be the first to know about the latest chiropractic associate opportunities. The best jobs move quickly, so staying up to date and in the know is critical. In the world of chiropractic associates, timing is everything. It’s not uncommon that the practice owner waits a little too long to begin their search, and they are typically anxious to hire their next associate. By staying engaged and on our list, you’ll be the first to know about each new opportunity as they present themselves. 

When you see something you like, reach out to our recruiting team as quickly as possible. We encourage our associates to reach out regarding any chiropractic associate positions that interest them, even if at first it may not appear like a perfect fit. Often, we find that associates tend to wait too long (just like practice owners) to apply. Our proven process and match making will help ensure that any position you interview for will have a high probability of being a great long-term fit. It’s better to apply to a variety of positions than not enough.
