Five ways radiation therapists can find travel work
There’s no need to scratch your head if you’re looking for a travel placement. Just follow these top job search tips:
- Google it. This may seem like a simple and obvious technique, but the search engine Google has made it excessively easy for users to find what they’re looking for. A simple Google search of “Radiation therapy travel jobs” can yield plenty of leads—helping you find possible travel jobs you may wish to apply for.
- Work with a recruiter. Recruiters are experts at what they do, and stake their reputations on helping you find the work you’re looking for. So partnering up with a recruiter—especially one who works for a boutique staffing firm specializing in travel healthcare placement—is a fool-proof way to land an exciting new travel assignment.
- Network on social media. There is no end to the job leads you can find through social media. LinkedIn functions as a live resume, and is frequented by recruiters looking for qualified healthcare workers just like you. Plus, you can visit the Facebook pages of companies that hire travel healthcare workers and message them, stating you’re in search of a travel radiation therapy position.
- Join a professional association. Groups such as the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) or the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) both have websites that feature job-search capabilities. You can also join professional organizations like these and attend conferences and networking events as a member.
- Attend healthcare-related job fairs. Job fairs are great places to interact with hiring managers and recruiters, especially one dedicated to the healthcare field. You can learn more about open job fairs by contacting nearby colleges and universities, or your local chamber of commerce.
Why it helps to work with a recruiter
Since they have extensive contacts in the job market, recruiters are aware of many open jobs—sometimes positions that aren’t even advertised to the public. Plus, they’re experts at what they do, so you can find a position more quickly and easily than looking on your own. Recruiters also want you to succeed, and they’ll work with you to perfect your resume and polish your interview skills. This can increase your chances of getting hired.
