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

Fall 2019 has shown very little change in the travel Diagnostic Ultrasonographer market since Summer. Overall, Diagnostic Ultrasonography is still looking strong. 

Compared to June 2019 (there were 100 jobs nationwide), we are today sitting around an average of 99 jobs for travel Diagnostic Ultrasonographer. That is a steamy (and consistent) market right there, which puts the opportunity to see the country in your hands! 

Travel on is the name of the Diagnostic Ultrasonographer 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 Nomadicare vetted recruiters are saying

“Sonographers are GREAT. There's a lot of jobs. Those are pretty spread out as well. Those are everywhere too.”

“The further West you go, you’ll probably see higher paying positions. Or the further Northeast. Maine, Massachusetts - all of those jobs I’m seeing higher pay and a good amount of jobs.”

“How many submittals before an interview? -Between 5 to 10. Actually, between 5-8 even; 8 at absolute max.”
“If they [Sonographers] are applying to places that don’t require licensure they should move quick!! A lot of times travelers want to think about it for a while. You should try to do the thinking before you start traveling.”
