Welcome to our Blog!  craresources is truly unique in that placing CRAs is ALL we do.  We understand the impact field monitors have to the success or failure of clinical studies and because of this single focus we are able to find the right fit for both the Client and the CRA.

Because of our extensive network within the CRA community, we are able to consistently provide quality CRAs to our Partners, making us a valued and key partner to our Clients. Additionally, since the placement of Field Monitors is our sole focus, consistently having CRA opportunities available as you are ready to roll onto another project is typical for us.

Within this Blog you will see industry updates, Job Seeker and Hiring Manager advice.  Our content is still growing, but we want you to join us and help create the community you want to be a part of! Explore our blog, leave comments, add advice…we love the feedback!

Holiday Excess Everywhere, and Nowhere a (Healthy) Bite to Eat!

The holidays this time of year seem to be all about abundance. Cookies and pies and special holiday treats are everywhere, not to mention parties and get-togethers where it’s so easy to overindulge.

If you’re brave enough to try to stick to your healthy eating plan throughout this season, it’s easy to feel deprived, because there are delicious foods EVERYWHERE that may not be “allowed” on your plan.

Planning ahead can be incredibly helpful. Sneak some healthier options into the mix. Your friends and family may even thank you for it.

Get your happy on by preparing foods that are tempting AND healthy.

While we’re on the topic of (and in the season of) temptations, when job interviewing or in the pre-interview stage, I know it’s extremely tempting to raise your salary requirements quite a bit from your previous and/or current position. But should you? And if so, how much?

For guidelines on the best way to determine what compensation you should be requesting, read our article What Should Your Compensation Requirements Be?

Time to Update Your Thanksgiving Menu?

The standard Thanksgiving meal is fantastic, but – who are we kidding? – most of it is not that healthy, especially if we’re having three times as much as we should.

Thinking of trying a healthier version of a classic Thanksgiving dish or adding some new, healthier, soon-to-be favorites?

Can’t Bear the Idea of Exercising Today?

You know you should work out, but some days it’s just hard to find the motivation. The short term benefit of zoning on the couch in front of the TV seems far greater than the long term benefit of getting in shape and getting healthy.

Or sometimes your life is so busy, there’s no time to zone on the couch, so the idea of finding time to exercise is even more daunting.

But remember that getting in shape is not the only benefit of exercise. If you lack energy, exercise can increase your metabolism and give you more get-up-and-go juice.

And those endorphins to help you feel better about life in general? I’ll have some of that, please!

Exercise can feel hard sometimes, whether it’s the initial act of adding exercise to your life, the daily “I should exercise now”, or the actual workout. But thinking about how it makes you feel when you’ve exercised can help you find the incentive to get up and get moving.

I saw this and loved it. I know I’m going to use it for inspiration.
