How to Burn a Bridge

We recently had a physician who replied to an opportunity in their ideal location.  It looked like a perfect fit.  When we followed up with the group about why they weren’t interested they said the head of the group was introduced to her by the program director the previous year.  A meeting was set, and she never showed up or followed up to apologize for missing the meeting.  Well, she did say she was sorry a year latter when he texted her after receiving the CV from us asking why she didn’t show up.  Make sure to never be too busy for basic professional acumen, in the small world of medical professionals as it’s taken as a sign of how you treat others i.e. patients and staff!
