Let's face it: the job search can be exhausting. And frustrating. And time-consuming. It's easy to get discouraged and settle for less than you deserve. That's just one of the reasons it's a good idea to rely on the professional services of a healthcare staffing agency. Rather than going at it alone, partnering with an agency means you're getting a job-search expert in your corner, working with you at every step of the process to land you a role you love.
Here are just some of the pros of working with a healthcare staffing agency:
Recruiters have exclusive access to top jobs.
Often, employers don't bother putting their open jobs on major job boards like Indeed and Monster. Instead, they connect directly with staffing agencies to fill their open roles. That means your healthcare recruiter has access to top jobs that you can't find on your own – gain access to these exclusive opportunities and land jobs that your competition can't see by partnering with a healthcare staffing agency.
Recruiters negotiate on your behalf.
One of the most difficult and stressful parts of the job hunt is negotiating salary and benefits once you've gotten through the interview process to an offer. Partnering with a recruiter means this part of the job hunt is taken care of for you. Not only will recruiters help you apply only to the jobs that meet your pay and benefits requirements, but they'll negotiate with hiring managers to get you the best deal possible.
Recruiters can get you flexibility.
Are you interested in temporary or contract nursing work? Per diem? Locum tenens work? Travel nursing? If you're looking for a flexible opportunity outside of the normal nursing shift work, your healthcare recruiter can help. You'll gain access to a wide variety of opportunities, including flexible ones, to find a position that suits your needs.
Recruiters take time to find the perfect fit.
Because your recruiter will sit down with you to learn more about your background, skills, and experience, they'll have a clear picture of what you're looking for out of a job. No more half-measures or compromises with your job search. You'll find roles that fit your every need, because that's what a recruiter is there for.
