It’s official—Fusion Marketplace has been around for over a year. By now, you know how beneficial Fusion Marketplace is to the healthcare travel community. You’ve heard about the customizable traveler profile and the unbeatable transparency. But do you know about the travel preferences you can set? Or that you can find your travel job and your temporary housing all in one go? And did you know you can not only read recruiter ratings and reviews, but also write your own?
No? Well then, you’re in for a treat. We have some Fusion Marketplace features to highlight.
No. 1: Specific traveler preferences
Wouldn’t it be great if you could filter out the jobs that didn’t apply to you as you search for your next assignment? Guess what? You can with Fusion Marketplace, using your very own traveler preferences.
When you create a Fusion Marketplace traveler profile, you’ll see a section of your profile is customizable. From here, you can set your preferences when it comes to department, healthcare specialty, location, shifts, pay range, and more to match what you’re looking for in a travel job. Personalize your profile and add your:
- Healthcare department(s)
- Specialty or specialties
- Top five states
- Top 10 cities
- Three shift types
- Three job types
- Available start date
Then, once you’ve set your traveler preferences, save, and send them to healthcare recruiters, along with the rest of your traveler profile. Traveler preferences are a streamlined and personalized way to get you to the next healthcare job you want.
No. 2: Traveler housing options
Temporary housing can make or break a travel assignment. Instead of searching endless sites, navigating Craigslist listings, and scrolling through Facebook ads, use Fusion Marketplace to book your assignment housing. That’s right—not only can you use Fusion Marketplace to land your travel job, but it’s also a tool to help you secure temporary housing for that job.
To make the travel process easier on you, Fusion Marketplace partnered with Furnished Finder so that you don’t have to search through multiple platforms to get organized for your travel job. Now, you can find your next travel job and browse through nearby condo, hotels, apartments, houses, and more all on Fusion Marketplace.
Housing isn’t one-size-fits-all. It looks different for everyone. Not only will you find lodging options close by your travel job, but you’ll also get to choose the housing that best suits you. Perhaps that’s a quaint one-bedroom rural home. Or maybe an extended-stay hotel is more your style. Whatever it is, you’re in control of where you stay. All you have to decide is:
- The type of housing unit you want
- The amount of monthly rent you can afford
- If you want a furnished or unfurnished unit
- If you need someplace pet-friendly
- How many bedrooms and bathrooms you want
- When you’re available to move in
- How long you’re staying
Luckily, Fusion Marketplace and Furnished Finder work together to give you the housing transparency you deserve. No matter where your travel job takes you, you’ll find temporary housing that fits your travel lifestyle and feels most like home.
No. 3: Recruiter ratings and reviews
As a professional healthcare traveler, you have enough to focus on. So, you shouldn’t have to worry about a relationship with your recruiter on top of everything else. Just like you have your traveler profile that recruiters can review, healthcare recruiters also have their own Fusion Marketplace profiles that are available to you. On an agency recruiter’s profile, you’ll see:
- The recruiter’s name, email address, and phone number
- Their healthcare recruiting specialty
- A personal bio
- The agency’s benefits, details, and travel jobs
- Ratings and reviews
Recruiter ratings and reviews are a win-win for both healthcare recruiters and travelers. For recruiters, they’ll get first-hand feedback from travelers they’ve worked with. From ratings and reviews, recruiters can learn what they did well, what they can improve on, and other traveler thoughts.
For travelers, recruiter ratings and reviews give you an inside scoop into the experience of others who have worked with that recruiter. With this feature, you can learn if you and the recruiter will work well together before either of you commit to each other. Plus, it allows you the ability to share your own experiences with other travelers. Write a full review revealing your thoughts and feelings or when there’s not much to say, rate the recruiter on a five-star scale:
- Was the recruiter able to meet your needs?
- Did the recruiter communicate effectively?
- Was the recruiter knowledgeable about the healthcare industry?
- Do you feel like your personalities clicked?
- Was the recruiter thoughtful of your wants, needs, and time?
- Do you feel like your recruiter did a good job?
After you leave a rating or review, the healthcare staffing agency has the option to reject or approve your review based on its content. So, if you notice your review is taking a bit of time to publish, that could be why. On the chance your rating and review is denied, you’ll be notified so you can try again with more feedback.
Fusion Marketplace was designed to be a traveler-driven platform where healthcare staffing agencies and professional travelers can connect with one-another. As Fusion Marketplace grows and expands, more and more features will be released to make the travel process as easy as possible for travelers and agencies alike. These may be the top three features you didn’t know much about, but we can assure you, there’s plenty more where they came from.
