If you are looking for a healthcare staffing firm to work with, using one with a national reach can offer unique advantages.
The most obvious advantage is the choice of assignments that it can offer. Because a national firm works with hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities throughout the country, it has access to many more jobs, and many more types of jobs than a smaller firm might have. As a result, you are much more likely to find a job that fits you and at a facility that is to your liking than if you are dealing with smaller firm.
If you are looking for a medical center that offers certain specialties of care or types of treatment, a national staffing agency will be better able to find what you are looking for. So, the range of choices is greater.
Not only that, a national firm can provide you the opportunity to work in a location that appeals to you. If you dislike cold weather, you can get a position at a hospital in a southern state. If you enjoy skiing, you can take a job at a facility in one of the Rocky Mountain states. If you like the beach, you can look for something in Florida or California – or even Hawaii!
Working with a national firm gives you the opportunity for travel that would be unavailable otherwise. You can take a job on the East Coast and then move to the West Coast.
Working in such varied geographical areas also provides you with the opportunity to see how different healthcare organizations operate. It gives you a much greater chance to learn best practices. You also have occasion to work with a varied group of people.
And, while all staffing agencies are familiar with the healthcare providers they work with, national agencies, because of their reach, are able to develop a much deeper and broader knowledge of how different providers operate, and what those providers need. This is knowledge that could be invaluable to a traveling healthcare professional.
National agencies also offer a range of benefits you may not find elsewhere, such as travel reimbursement, health insurance, life insurance, short-and long-term disability insurance, 401(k), continuing education, and referral bonuses.
