Writing Your Chiropractic Resume.
Careers4Life is our online recruiting system for students and alumni from all academic majors. Posted opportunities include local part-time jobs and full-time career opportunities. There are many chiropractic opportunities that are currently posted on the site, and new ones are added almost every day. Students pursuing the DC degree should begin reading through the ads so they can be familiar with the variety of career options available. Upon taking inventory of all the opportunities listed, we found that almost every state in the U.S. had a current opportunity posted, and there are many international opportunities as well. There are currently over 500 posted chiropractic ads which include associate positions, independent contractor positions, and practices for sale. Life University graduates 50-70 DC students every quarter. It is an exciting time to be a chiropractor!
