I was trying to make it clear that there are many, unadvertised jobs and you really have to find company names and go to their sites. Healthcare in this area is the same --- the hospitals and clinics post jobs through their own sites and do no use job boards.
However, I wanted to also be clear that I live in a Chicago suburban area. If I were in downstate Illinois (for example), there would be much more limited opportunity. But still, the main thing is to realize that even in these bad times, there IS some hiring going on and you have to know how to search for it.
If you look at my profile, you'll see I've had multiple careers in disparate industries. I've interviewed, literally, hundreds of times for new jobs, full time and part time, in various careers as well as spending a lot of my time as a computer programming in the consulting field and having to interview with clients on a regular basis in order to obtain assignments.
You have to be flexible and smart to job hunt successfully.
