Find a Position
Working with a Specialized Recruiter
At Jacobs and Associates, we only recruit for positions in the ER and Critical Care Service Lines, at manager-level and above. Working with a recruiter specialized in such a narrow niche assures you that we know how to best represent you, and best prepare you to be presented directly to the hiring manager. Every day we speak with ER and Critical Care leadership throughout the country. We know how to speak "the language" and how to communicate your skills and experience in a manner that is meaningful and appropriate. We also know that a cultural fit is as important as an experience fit; you have to work well within the hospital’s environment. Part of our job is knowing the culture of our client hospitals, and then only presenting you for available positions that best match your career goals, experience-level, abilities and expectations.
We conduct professional negotiations every day. You are an expert in your profession, as are we in ours. Our profession is search, recruitment and negotiations. Let us "go to bat" on your behalf to insure a seamless hiring process. We know our clients and what they are able and willing to do. We learn your needs and desires. Working to make the two parts gel together is our responsibility, and one we take very serious. Working with Jacobs and Associates puts a specialized industry expert in your corner.
Presenting New Career Possibilities
"I was not in the process of looking for new employment when Ken Jacobs approached me via telephone about a potential new job opportunity. I gave him the opportunity to talk with me about the available position, which led to a phone interview with the facility. I then had an onsite interview and, after a very brief couple of days, I was given an offer that I could not refuse. This was the easiest job interviewing process that I have ever done because Ken told me exactly what to expect and helped me to be prepared for the particulars of the interview. The most impressive part of this entire process was the fact that Ken kept me totally informed every step of the way. Thanks to him I am extremely excited to begin a new adventure in my nursing career."Critical Care Manager – 650 bed, Level II, Magnet Facility in the Gulf South region.
“One day I received an email from Ken Jacobs alerting to me an ED position which intrigued me. I picked up the phone and called him and again, was even more intrigued by his description of the position and of the organization. Ken quickly arranged a Skype interview with the prospective company which ultimately lead to an on-site interview. Prior to both interviews Ken spent quite some time going over key points with me to ensure that I was appropriately prepared. This preparation lead to an offer which is where Ken’s real talents began to shine. Ken negotiated the best rate and benefit package I could have imagined and communicated with me throughout the process, acting on my behalf at all times. I have used recruiters in the past but I have never found them to have the same professionalism as Ken Jacobs. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and I am grateful to Ken for all of his hard work and dedication to his profession.”System Director of Emergency Services - 5 Hospital System, Faith-Based, Not-for-Profit, Combined Annual Total of 200K ER Visits in the Mid-West.

Their involvement does not end with the job offer, rather they maintain contact with you to assure all is going well. They truly care about you as a person – and your success.”ER Director – 40+ Hospital System, Not-for-Profit in the Pacific Northwest.
“Ken is excellent at his job. I didn't realize I wanted a new job until Ken contacted me about a great career opportunity. I had been with the same organization for over a decade so interviewing was not a strong skill. Ken worked with me over the phone on seveal occasions to perfect my story before the interviews. He helped me finesse my delivery and most importantly taught me to ask 'What is the next step in theinterview process' at the end of each interveiw.”
"Ken is professional, supportive, and friendly too. I am very happy and satisfied with my new job, in a new city, with great career growth potential. Thank you, Ken."Critical Care Director, Multi-Hospital System, Pac-NW.
