Finding a new nursing job can seem a bit overwhelming, especially amongst the COVID-19 pandemic when the demand for nurses is at its highest. From getting constant job offers, searching on your own through job postings, creating custom resumes and preparing for interviews, the mere thought of putting yourself out there can feel simultaneously exhausting and overwhelming.
What you might not realize is you don’t have to navigate this process on your own. Working with a recruiter can help nurses take the next step in their careers free of charge. That’s right — you can get help from a recruiter without spending a dime, so find out what you have to gain by doing so.
Define Your Career Goals
Nursing offers many different directions to take your career, whether it be the many different specialties, the location relevant to your home, or a destination job if you’re interested in travel nursing. If you feel a bit lost right now, your recruiter can help you get back on track. They’ll work with you to learn more about your skills, experience, and goals to ensure your next job aligns with your future plans.
Tailor Your Resume for the Job You Want
Writing an eye-catching nursing resume can be tricky. As a staffing expert, your recruiter knows exactly what employers want, and they’ll give your resume a professional overhaul. Your resume is the first impression you’ll make on a potential employer, so your goal should be to tailor it for the exact position you’re hoping to land. Working with an expert is a great way to ensure you’re doing just that.
Access Exclusive Opportunities
Many healthcare organizations hire exclusively through recruiters. This means you’ll never even know jobs at the facility are available unless you’re working with a recruiter. This is a great way to gain insight on all nursing jobs – maybe even your dream job!
Free Up Your Time by Letting a Recruiter Work For You
It’s possible you’re not looking for a traditional nursing position right now. However, flexible roles can be difficult to find — unless you work with a recruiter. These professionals frequently help facilities find nurses for non-traditional roles, including temporary jobs, travel nursing, and even COVID-19 contract work. Just tell your recruiter what you need, and they’ll work to find it. Working with a recruiter will alleviate the stress of the constant job offers, search, resume writing, and negotiation. Leave it all up to your recruiter to find the location, salary, schedule, and benefits that you’re looking for. Whether your looking to start your long term career or take advantage of the incentives that go along with helping battle the coronavirus on the frontline, a recruiter can help you find your ideal fit.
