create an account on LinkedIn. I get like 20 calls a day offering work that actually uses my MD degree (medical records reviewer, healthcare business consultant etc)

well, just because it says that under "required" , it doesn't mean that you can't apply. give it a shot . LinkedIn is wide open, make sure to put your title (MD/MBBS/etc after your name), recruiters are able to search based on keywords in your profile-list as many things as you can. it is so much better than the ERAS profile. right now, I'm working as a temp medical records analyst for a large health insurance company. it's a cubicle job, but pays a "whopping" $23/hour while I wait for the match. haha.

An advanced degree is a hot commodity in the corporate world. It shows how much substance and intelligence you have. Thankfully, it isn't taken lightly in the corporate world. That's why I don't fear going unmatched. Medicine is not just clinical, it has a huuuuge corporate aspect (which may even be more lucrative). The options are endless, trust me.

I'm sure you'll find something!

Just came from an Interview and the PD say that ANYTHING in the medical field is a plus, he took into consideration medical scribes, medical analyst, medical assistant and researchers, he said the amount of people is so big that any little detail in your resume counts, so all those type jobs are good. I uploaded my resume on those regular job seekers web pages like indeed.com and there are some jobs available for foreign MD.
