This famous image of Tom Cruise portraying a Sports Agent in the blockbuster movie, Jerry Maguire and the famous line “HELP ME HELP YOU” has never rang truer than it does today. Healthcare recruiters are shouting it from the roof tops. While sports agents get to show up at team practices and games to reach out directly to potential clients, healthcare recruiters work tirelessly and very non-conventional hours to connect with highly sought after healthcare professionals but never on site of any facility. Through cold calling, word of mouth, networking on the many social platforms, a successful healthcare recruiter never shies away from a challenge or the hustle.
In an industry that has lost a record number of professionals due to burn out, fatigue, and frustration with workplace politics, it is best to seek an experienced, successful, healthcare recruiter to be in your corner.
Another reason travel healthcare agencies have grown is we can provide a solution to help decrease employment stress and worry.
Additionally, a successful recruiter can help assist you in the process of going from agency to staff and back and forth as needed by what YOUR needs are at the time and in those transitions ensure you do not make any missteps that can affect your ability to return to travel again should the desire arise. In addition, our recruitment team can assist you in a direct staff position and negotiate the best offer possible.
A successful recruiter is the best option for falling in love with your healthcare career again. Having your own professional cheerleader in your corner, seeking advice on updating certifications, clinical skills, making yourself marketable, being paid competitive market wages are just a few of the ways a recruiter can help you.
Here are some tips to effectively work with your personalized Healthcare Recruiter here at Fidelity on Call:
‣ COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY. Be sure to communicate what your goals and objectives are. Share what your preferred method of communication is. Communication is half the battle in all successful working relationships! Also ask what your recruiter would like for communication. Communication is also a two-way street. Both you and your recruiter need to be on the same page.
‣ SEEK ADVICE. Before applying for a staff job, even if it is PRN, speak with your recruiter to ensure you discuss all the stipulations hospitals put on PRN staff that could potentially affect if you wish to travel full time or move onto another assignment. There has become an increasing number of strings attached to working staff in any capacity. It is best to have all the information prior to making any decisions so you do not limit your opportunities.
‣ RELATIONSHIP and RESPECT are critical in any professional or personal relationship. Your time is just as important to you as it is to your healthcare recruiter. Be sure you provide the same respect in return.
