Continue reading for a list of pointers to help you develop a strong rapport with your recruiter.
- Make a Plan
Being organized is the best way to start a relationship between a nurse and a recruiter. Because all travel nursing companies interview and screen applicants, preparing for your first conversation will increase your chances of landing a great assignment quickly. Make certain that your records, license, and any other relevant documents are also up to date.
- Ensure Open Communication
Finding an assignment can be difficult for those who are new to traveling nursing. A great recruiter, on the other hand, will ensure that everyone is on the same page and working together to find the assignment that best fits your needs.
That’s why it’s critical to keep in touch with your recruiter. Tell your recruiter when and how you prefer to be contacted, and inquire about your access and communication while on assignment.
If you’re looking for a new job, don’t be afraid to contact your recruiter every few days to get an update on the status of your application. Inquire if there are any new assignments available, and ensure that your nurse profile is complete and up to date.
- Transparency and Trustworthiness
Don’t be afraid to be open and honest with your recruiter! When you first start out, tell them about your deal-breakers and deal-makers, and be honest about what you’re looking for.
Bring up any conflicts, worries, or concerns that may arise during your assignment, no matter how minor they may be. The sooner you address a problem, the better your assignment will be. Transparency will help you build trust with your recruiter, whether you’re looking for a contract or in the middle of an assignment. Their job is to find the best assignment for you, and you can assist them by being truthful about your preferences.
A great recruiter will ensure that everyone is on the same page and working together to find the best assignment for a nurse’s needs.
- Keeping in Touch
Maintain contact after you’ve secured an assignment. Your life circumstances or travel nursing preferences may change as you work through your contract, so it’s important to keep your relationship going.
Inform your recruiter of your status as your assignment comes to an end. Are you looking for a new job? Do you want to take a breather? Typically, a good recruiter will reach out to you to ask you these questions, but knowing your answers is useful.
Maintaining your nurse-recruiter relationship will pay dividends in the long run. As your relationship develops, a great recruiter will provide you with honest feedback on facilities, pay packages, and clinical environments, as well as an understanding of the significance of any given assignment in your life.
