A travel nurse recruiter. Your window to the world of travel healthcare. Your only access to landing a travel gig in a new place. The person who determines just how much you can really make. Getting one recruiter versus another could make the difference of $500 a week. Yep! That’s how much it matters.
And sometimes it can be a little tricky. There are over 400 agencies out there and finding trustworthy travel nurse recruiters can be hard. Especially when it’s part of their job to act like our best friends (and they’re really good at it!). But recruiters are humans too. And they’re trying to perform well at their jobs just like we are.
Lucky for us, this relationship can be a win-win for everyone.
I’m here. To make sure you have amazing travel nurse recruiters that you love. Because traveling should be fun not stressful! Every recruiter you get matched with through Nomadicare is vetted and has passed the famous Honest Recruiter Interview. They all come with a Nomadicare guarantee.
Their guarantee to you is that they will:
1. Never blind submit you to a job. Blind submitting a traveler means your recruiter submitted your resumé and personal information to an open job before you explicitly said yes. Once you are submitted you are pretty much locked into that pay package and being represented by that company for this job. Our recruiters promise to never submit you until they get the ok from you. undefined
2. Never make you feel guilty (even passively) for working with 2-3 companies. Not all companies have the same jobs. And the companies that do share jobs may have different relationships with those facilities and sometimes different bill rates to work with. It’s important to explore your options. Recruiters know this. That’s why they won’t make you feel bad or awkward for doing what’s best for yourself. Just let your recruiters know if you land a job with another company, right away. Then they know it’s time to stop hustling for you until you’re ready for your next assignment.
3. Always pay the most on the first offer. You’ll never have to negotiate with your travel nurse recruiter for more. They want to be the ones that give you the highest offer. And they want you to be happy so that you want to work with them again. You can ask for more money. Just know when you do, you are having your recruiter ask the facility. So if you can get more money, it’s coming from the bill rate, not from your recruiter’s company.
4. Always show you the full pay (as much as they know) before submitting you. Seeing all the details before your recruiter submits you helps you to be empowered. It manages your expectations and allows you to compare your options. When possible, your travel nurse recruiter will go over each bucket of money with you so you understand exactly what you’re being submitted for. We want you to know all the details before you say “Yes!”.
5. Be awesome, kind, and a true team player with you! The best travel nurse recruiter relationships have lots of communication. That’s why it’s so important to be working with someone that truly treats you with kindness and respect. Your recruiters should always have your best interest. And remember to be kind to them too! Relationships go both ways. Make your travel nurse recruiter feel appreciated for all the hard work that they do for you.
Cheers and thanks to all our amazing travel nurse recruiters!
