As the nation once again falls victim to the annual and acute affliction of March Madness, I felt inspired by the many correlations to the hiring process. I know that for some, the hiring process may feel more like a surprise game of dodgeball at an anger management retreat than the elegant brackets of the NCAA tournament. But in the clinical and non-clinical Medical Management niche that CareNational specializes in, it often has the appearance of an intense and culminating competition. By the time the best candidates have moved into the final round of interviews, I am emotionally invested in seeing my favorite win that title; much like the Final Four. I thought I would look at a few other similarities between the landmark collegiate basketball tournament and the recruiting and hiring process for Managed Care professionals in Case Management, Utilization Management, and Quality Management.
