Keyword and Zip Code are option fields, but if you are only willing to work in your area, fill in the zip code to narrow down the search results. However, for IT jobs, don't fill in the keyword field because if you type in "IT" or "computer" or something related, the results may be for positions that are not even close to IT or computers. Instead, select your state and, from the Job Title Search drop-down menu choose options like "Other" or "Other Positions" under each type of section. There is a list of sections under the Healthcare IT section, so choose that first, but if you don't find something, try the above tactic.

Don't Forget Local
Relying solely on the healthcare IT Job search sites look for job openings could cause you to miss local jobs, especially if those providers or hospitals don't post jobs on any websites. Visit the websites (if available) of any local healthcare facilities where you are interested in working or make sure to check the paper occasionally so that the one job you're perfect for doesn't slip under the radar.
