I recently had the opportunity to speak with Jenifer Brown, president and owner of the newly founded Health Tech Talent Management LLC for an upcoming Industry Insider column. Brown specializes in talent management and acquisition and offers placement services for both biomeds as well as facilities. After working in the industry for a number of years, she saw a need in the industry to begin her own company and take on a greater role in the placement of biomeds and health care professionals.

In the past, I have spoken with members of local biomed associations who say that many members use meetings as a way to network professionally and discover new employment opportunities. However, I have never spoken with biomeds who have said that they utilize talent management firms like Health Tech Talent Management LLC to assist in job placement. Have you or any of your coworkers used these services to help find a position in the clinical engineering industry? If so, would you recommend these services to your contemporaries?
