There are plenty of avenues for getting in contact with a recruiter to find your next travel adventure. Many find that reaching out by sending in your resume to a company website the old-fashioned way works just fine. With social media taking up a good chunk of everyone’s free time, whether we like to admit it or not, it is sometimes a bit easier to find a recruiter while scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn. Here are some tips to finding a great match with a social media recruiter while browsing your timelines:
Join Facebook Groups
There are plenty of Facebook groups that are geared towards the travel healthcare industry. More specifically, you can join groups that focus on your profession. Groups like Travel Jobs RN Demand post jobs daily that allow you to peruse job listings from the comfort of your own home or on the go! Looking at what’s going on in the travel world and where jobs are heavily located can give you an idea of where you’d like to travel to next!
Post in Facebook Groups
After joining any of the wonderful Facebook Groups available to you at the touch of a finger, it’s always a great idea to post what you’re looking for. Plenty of nurses can post in these groups when t they’re looking for specific travel options such as 13-week assignments in Chicago or Seattle and are contacted directly by social media recruiters and recruiters alike. This helps with your time management of companies only reaching out to you if they have exactly what you’re looking for.
Get to Know your Recruiter
It’s important to have a connection with your social media recruiter – not just have them set you up with your next travel adventure. This can look different for everyone depending on what you prioritize in the relationship with your recruiter. Take, for instance, Sarah Weeks, a social media recruiter ready to help with your next assignment. Other than working in the industry for two years and having a successful track record in finding nurses their next dream travel assignment, Sarah enjoys the outdoors, such as hiking, kayaking, and exploring nearby lakes. Maybe you need ideas on where you would like to travel to next? Social media recruiters are constantly hearing about fantastic places and adventures nurses have experienced, such as seeing the Northern Lights in Alaska, visiting lighthouses in Maine, taking in a game at Fenway Park in Boston, walking Waikiki Beach in Hawaii, or kayaking the Buffalo River in Arkansas.
At the end of the day, it’s all about finding the right travel assignment for you! Finding the best adventure doesn’t have to be difficult; it can be found while you browse your social feeds after work or during your lunch break. Happy traveling!
