Are you looking for your next opportunity in healthcare? Whether you’re a Registered Nurse, a CNA, a surgical technologist, or anything in between, tackling the job search alone can be daunting, time-consuming, and frustrating. There are plenty of opportunities out there, but they don’t all fit your needs – and if you’re not the best self-advocate, you might be left wanting more.

What’s the solution? Partnering with a nursing staffing firm like Medical Talent means you’re gaining access to a career advocate who will be there with you every step of the way. Here’s what sets us apart:

We Match for Skills and Experience

When you join the Medical Talent team, you don’t just become a number in a database. Your recruiter will take the time to get to know you personally, and we’ll review your background and work history extensively to make sure we understand the breadth and depth of your skills. That lets us match you with an employer where you can truly shine, showcasing your care skills and bedside manner. Whether you’re looking to improve your resume, work your way up the ranks to a higher position, or just help as many patients as you can, reach your goals with the help of Medical Talent skilled recruiters.

We Match for Cultural Fit

We know that a job is about more than the skills you can bring to it, or the pay and benefits that you get out of it (although those things matter, too). The fact is, the right money and perks won’t mean much if you don’t like the culture of the facility you’re placed in. That’s why we match our nursing talent for cultural fit as well as skills and job requirements. We’ll ask pointed questions to learn what kind of environment you want to work in, and use that information to find you an opportunity that fits the bill.

We Match for Personality

Are you an outgoing, bubbly person who loves talking to people? Are you more reserved, preferring to spend your time talking one-on-one with patients? Whatever kind of personality you bring to your nursing career, we have opportunities that align with it. We’ll take the time to get to know your personal character as well as the values that guide you as a healthcare professional – that’s what helps us connect you with the opportunities that check every box.

When you go about the sourcing and hiring process alone, it can be hard to find the people you want and need. You probably feel like you’re pulling from a very small batch of candidates and that you just don’t have the reach you need. That’s where a staffing firm comes in. Partnering with a staffing agency means you can access a much wider pool of candidates than you would be able to alone. Here’s why:

Recruiters have access to a large talent pipeline.

Recruiters make it their business to build up a large pool of vetted, qualified candidates for a variety of roles. And they spend years making connections with candidates and employers, and that vast network gives them access to candidates that companies can’t find on their own. Remember: Recruiters do this for a living. They’re well versed in finding the best possible fit for your open roles.

Recruiters can reach active and passive candidates.

Keep in mind that recruiters can reach out to active candidates, meaning individuals who are actively seeking a job. But they also have connections with passive candidates – those people who are already employed or aren’t looking for work, but may be interested in a new position if the right fit comes along. Sometimes, a passive candidate is the ideal choice for a certain role, but you would never be able to access that person without the help of an experienced recruiter.

Recruiters advertise on a variety of platforms.

A staffing firm uses advanced tools and technology like applicant tracking systems to find qualified candidates for your open roles. They also advertise their jobs across a variety of platforms – both the major job boards like ZipRecruiter and Indeed, and across social media channels as well. This increased reach means recruiters are able to pull in candidates from a wider diverse pool than you would on your own.

Working as a travel nurse has many great benefits. High pay, a chance to see the country and explore new cities, the opportunity to work with a variety of teams, resume building… the list goes on. But one drawback of this profession is that you’re away from home a lot. That can make it difficult to maintain relationships back home while you’re out on the road.

Whether it’s a significant other, friends, or family members, there are steps you can take to keep up with the relationships you have back home. Here are some tips:

Use technology to your advantage.

Thankfully, the technology we have at our disposal today makes it easier than ever to maintain relationships even over long distances. Text or call your family members, friends, and significant other on a regular basis – communicating regularly is the key to maintaining any kind of relationship. And video chatting through apps like FaceTime or programs like Skype even allows you to see these people face-to-face. That means you can literally see the people who are most important to you whenever you have time away from work.

Set expectations.

Communicate clearly with your significant other, family members, and friends about when you’ll be available to talk with them, and what your schedule will be in terms of contract length. Get everyone on the same page about when you’re able to talk, and when you’ll be working and/or coming back home, and for how long. That way, no one is left in the dark. Being open and transparent about the expectations you have for communication is the best way to make it work.

Plan ahead.

As a travel nurse, you’ll be well aware of how long your contracts last, whether you’ll be extending them or not, and when you’ll be back home. Plan ahead to see the people you care about when you’re back home – set a date to get dinner, or go shopping, or simply hang out at home. Having that time to look forward to is a great motivator for you and the people who are looking forward to spending time with you back at home.

Feel like you’re never hearing back when applying to jobs? It’s not that you’re a bad candidate – it might be that your resume isn’t up to par. When was the last time you took a look at your resume and made sure it was firing on all cylinders? Here are three quick tips to strengthen your resume:

#1: Tailor it with keywords.

For most of the jobs you apply to, your resume won’t get in front of human eyeballs right away. It will be processed by a resume parsing system, which scans your resume for keywords relevant to the job you’re applying for. When the system finds enough of the right keywords, it pushes you higher in the pile. That’s why you should tailor your resume to the specific job you’re applying for – take a look at the job description and be sure to include words and phrases from it in your resume.

#2: Make it skimmable.

No one likes to read long paragraphs. And a hiring manager who has hundreds of resumes to go through literally doesn’t have the time. That’s why making your resume “skimmable” is a good practice to follow. This means using lots of headings, varying the sizes of headings to create a logical hierarchy, and keeping paragraphs very short (3 sentences or so at most).

#3: Be specific.

In your work history segments, make sure you’re being specific about the results you brought to past employers. Rather than saying you “improved patient outcomes as a part of the intake team,” point out how you “raised patient processing times by 15% and cared for upwards of 10 patients per shift.” Getting specific with numbers helps hiring managers to see the real, quantifiable results of your work, and it helps you stick in their minds better, too.

In some organizations, managers are more figureheads than leaders, and they tend to view their employees as nothing more than a number. They don’t think about the employees themselves; they just think about their work and what they can produce. It’s not about the people doing the work, it’s about the work itself.

Clearly, this isn’t good for the organization.

Here’s why all managers should get to know their employees aside from the work they produce:

It promotes a positive work culture.

When employees feel that their manager really knows them and their personality, it helps everyone to feel at ease and comfortable. It makes employees feel that their employment doesn’t hinge on what they can do, or how much they can get done during a shift – it makes them feel that they’re truly valued as a member of the team. On the whole, this promotes a positive work environment rather than a toxic one.

It opens the door for growth opportunities.

When managers get to know their employees a little better, they’ll get to know what they want out of their careers, and what they see for themselves in the future. That lets the manager better facilitate growth and advancement, improving the entire organization as a result. When the manager and their employees can work together to find mutually beneficial opportunities for improvement and growth, everyone’s happy.

It improves retention.

When employees don’t feel seen or heard by their managers, they don’t have much of a reason to stick around. Retention rates increase greatly when managers are engaged with their employees, when conversations are had frequently, and when the supervisor-employee relationship is one level deeper than a numbers game. If employees feel like they’re just one more cog in the machine, however, they’ll quickly jump ship to find something that suits them better.

The Great Resignation has affected industries of all types. Workers are leaving at record rates as the Baby Boomer generation retires and social and cultural changes give workers more reason to leave the workforce – and either stay out entirely or find new jobs. In healthcare, this problem is further compounded by the burnout many medical professionals are still feeling as the COVID-19 pandemic wears on. If your facility is feeling the crunch, it’s really no wonder.

Partnering with a staffing firm is one of the best ways to stay afloat during The Great Resignation.
