However, you can still respond to their job posting. If you have applied for a job through a PhysicianCareer.com’s posting, your contact information will then be visible to the employer so that they can contact you directly. If you set your profile to “public,” employers will be able to see your full name and profile, and match you to their practice opportunity.
