“It’s Not Me, It’s You” travel nursing recruiter template

Your recruiter did something you didn’t like. You tried to work it out, but now you’re sure that you need to officially breakup.

You deserve to have a recruiter you can trust and rely on. But how do you let your current recruiter know you need to part ways? And how do you express what you feel went wrong? We have the template for you, traveler!

Clear and honest communication is our favorite.

Just copy and paste 👇‍

Hi travel nursing recruiter,

I want to update you on my needs as a traveler so you can update your notes. I also want to communicate to you my frustration, and I hope we can all learn from this.

First, I want to be clear that at this time, I am not looking for a travel position with your company. I am requesting removal from your company’s email lists and call lists at this point. I know you can understand how often travelers’ numbers get used and abused, even when not looking for a travel job! So I appreciate the respect you are giving me by removing my name from your company’s list.

I also wanted to be open about why I no longer want to work with your company. This is not to shame anyone, but it is hard for someone to grow without honest feedback. When we can objectively learn from our mistakes, that is where people can truly become great.

I felt _________ when _________ happened. What I would have liked to see happen was _________.

Thank you for being open to feedback and for removing me from your contact lists.

The empowered travel nurse (aka, your name!)

Cheers to honest & professional feedback!
