Earlier this year, I shared a story about one of our favorite teams here in town, American Physician Partners. I was able to catch up with Derek Sawyer earlier this week, to get the inside scoop of what its like to work at APP and how his new job is going.
What do you like most about your new job?
Derek: I like the freedom to take on more responsibility and grow professionally with a like-minded group of hard working people.
How did you hear about APP in the first place?
Derek: Actually, I wasn’t looking. A good opportunity found me through Relode.
What was the process like with Relode?
Derek: Very simple. I’m a recruiter myself, so I was very impressed. The platform is seamless. I was contacted with an opportunity and within 3 or 4 days a phone screen was set with the hiring manager. Shortly after, the site visit was set and the rest is history. Relode was very helpful in facilitating the relocation and making sure I felt comfortable with my new environment.
What would you say to your friends about Relode?
Derek: Relode is a simple and very effective tool to help you get where you are looking to go. I’m really excited about my job at APP, and continuing to use Relode as an Agent to help my friends find great jobs.
I also had a chance to chat with the Relode teammates involved in the process.
What was the process like working with American Physician Partners?
Jenny: APP is fantastic. Working with Dan at APP was easy. Because we only work with hiring managers and the direct decision makers in the hiring process, I knew I could be open with Dan about Derek’s strengths, skills, and how I saw him fitting in with the team.
What about Derek?
Jenny: It was so easy to connect with Derek. He was referred to us by another physician recruiter. All I had to do was shoot him a quick email.
What do you like best about the Relode process?
Jenny: It’s easy, fast, and you know you are working with the right people.
Congrats on your new gig Derek. We are excited to have you in Nashville and thrilled we got to be part of helping you land your next role.
