What does this mean for you, our adventurous and brave travelers? 

Fall 2019 has shown a slight decrease in the travel CT Tech market since Summer. No worries though! Overall, CT Tech is still looking strong.

Compared to June 2019 (there were 81 jobs nationwide), we are today sitting around an average of 75 jobs for travel CT Techs. That is a steamy market right there, which puts the opportunity to see the country in your hands! 

Travel on is the name of the CT Tech travel game this fall. 

Enjoy the high but don’t get cocky - The market goes up and it goes down. This is a great season to enjoy the abundance of opportunities but don’t burn bridges or relationships by acting like the industry revolves around you. Be empowered, not entitled. 😉

Consider certifications in an additional specialty - Any cross training is always a huge plus! Even if you aren’t certified, experience in other specialties is very valuable. Facilities are looking for the travelers that can do it all.

Compare pay and talk to several recruiters - Your speciality is in demand. Make sure you work with 3-4 recruiters so you are able to hear about all the jobs that could benefit you. Remember that each company has unique jobs to tell you about. Ask for pay packages up front and compare pay so you know you are getting what you are worth. 

It’s Fall - Take into consideration that there are more holidays in these 3 months than any others and plan accordingly to make sure you are receiving your hours each week to get your full per diem.

Show up for your recruiter - The world may be your oyster for travel, but remember that your recruiter is hustling to get you the best placement possible! Know the difference between an empowered traveler and an entitled traveler. Be a great communicator and show up as a kind and professional partner to them, so they want to go the extra mile for you.

What does this mean for the market?

Fall 2019 - the market temperature is hot for travel CT Tech! That means more jobs and less competition for each job. It is an extra hot season to enjoy traveling and having extra leverage in picking top pay packages. 

When one might hear travel therapy companies say, “We staff in all 50 states”. 

What this means: The agency is legally set up with the ability to staff in all 50 states. 

What this does not mean: The agency has jobs in all 50 states. 

We surveyed dozens of companies to create this map. It represents a large percentage of the travel CT Tech job market. Across all of the USA there are around 75 open travel CT Tech jobs at one time, yet many states still have no jobs at all. 

California, as always, holds the trophy for having the most needs (hint: it’s a great state to have a license in!) Texas, Oregon, and Massachusetts are also looking great this season.

What Nomadicare vetted recruiters are saying

“The market is great and there’s always jobs for CTs and not all states require licensure, which is good for them! Any cross training is always a huge plus! CT techs can get paid good money, there’s a lot of options out there for them!”

“Across the board Q4 is our slowest for producing sales because less people are traveling. It's a good time to be a traveler! [You have to think,] this is gonna be an investment in my traveler career. Usually travelers are the ones they’re gonna look to for coverage. If you’re the one that's willing to not take that time off, you're going to have a lot more opportunity!”

“Sometimes CTs don’t know Xray. People want the unicorn. They want the person that can do everything. If you can, definitely try to do that.”

Know their best defense is options. They are always staying in communication with multiple recruiters, so they are never caught without an option when option A doesn’t go as planned. 

Are brave and adventurous! They are not trying to “travel” next to their hometown.

Are savvy with working with many companies and stay professional so they don’t burn bridges. 

Know that sometimes contracts get canceled, that this journey is unpredictable, and they embrace it and roll with it.

Are prepared for interviews to make sure they are standing out.

Understand SPEED can be everything. They know what they want. They can look at pay packages and make decisions fast, so their resumé gets to the top of a stack!
