It’s enough of a headache to find your ideal healthcare job in one of your bucket list destinations, so now imagine what it’s like to double that. While it may sound impossible to do, many people make it happen as healthcare traveler duos.
You can travel with another person! Romantic partners, best friends, previous co-workers, family members... traveler couples aren’t as rare as you might think. In the past, it may have seemed like an uphill battle for pairs to stick together while on assignments, but now Fusion Marketplace has changed the game to simplify the job search and hiring process for solo travelers, couples, and families. Here’s the inside scoop on how.
No. 1: Professional autonomy for all travelers
Isn’t it great to be in control of your career? Fusion Marketplace gives every traveler the power to own their healthcare career with more job visibility, a more simplified job application process, plus enhanced professional autonomy.
Your career should be in your hands, and that’s true for both you and your travel partner. With access to travel healthcare jobs across the country, you and your other half can easily tag-team to take charge of your job destinations, as well as your personal and professional goals.
That way, you both have visibility into the same job postings, the same staffing agencies, plus the same recruiter ratings and reviews, making it much less complicated to plan your next move together.
No. 2: Amplified travel job transparency
Going hand-in-hand with autonomy is transparency because it’s helpful to have all the details when trying to decide where your healthcare career will take your travel team. Built to make comparing healthcare jobs a breeze, this one-stop-shop allows you to see details on locations, pay packages, benefits, housing, and more, so you can decide what’s best for your duo.
No. 3: Customized job searches
Make sure you and your partner are seeing the most relevant job searches by customizing your traveler profiles. Set specific job preferences with healthcare department(s), specialty/specialties, preferred states, cities, shift types, and job type to fully narrow down what you see when you search for your team’s next travel assignments.
No. 4: Visibility into multiple staffing agencies
Sometimes one agency doesn’t work for both travelers, and that’s okay. Fusion Marketplace gives you and your other half automatic access into travel jobs from multiple staffing agencies. Even better, each Marketplace job posting offers detailed transparency and more information about the staffing company, agency benefits, and recruiter ratings and reviews.
If your duo’s goal is to stick together with travel placements, try to apply to the same agency as one another to boost your chances of landing jobs at the same place. If not, consider working with different agencies that have jobs in the same location and within a reasonable distance from your partner’s facility to ensure the commute time is relatively balanced.
Before making any official moves, do some research into the policies of your desired healthcare facility to double-check couples are allowed to work together. Some institutions prohibit partners from working at the same place at the same time.
No. 5: Easy access to recruiter communication
Wouldn’t it be great to know ahead of time what to expect when you first communicate with a healthcare recruiter? Fusion Marketplace delivers just that with exclusive recruiter ratings and reviews. Within each recruiter profile is personal information on the agency recruiter, which includes things like:
- An “About Me” section authored by the recruiter themselves
- General information about the recruiter’s healthcare staffing agency
- Ratings and reviews from other travelers and healthcare professionals
- The recruiter’s email and phone number so you can write, text, or call at any time with questions, concerns, or anything in-between
Don’t jump through hoops to find out who to ask what and when. Fusion Marketplace gives you first-hand access to the top recruiters from multiple healthcare staffing companies so you can reach-out ahead of time to let them know you’re a package deal.
No. 6: Additional traveler resources
Through more autonomy, transparency, custom job searches, agency visibility, and convenient recruiter communication, Fusion Marketplace takes the “hard” out of “hard work” when it comes to you and your partner finding your next healthcare jobs.
But the resources don’t stop there! Marketplace also provides diverse housing options, which allows you and your fellow traveler to consider what works best for both of you and your situation. For example, tax stipends can work differently when you travel as a pair—regardless of marital status—than when you venture solo. There are a few ways your choices differ:
- If you and your travel partner accept healthcare assignments through the same staffing agency, one of you could accept company-provided housing, but then if the other opts for the stipend, it will be taxed. Be careful if you think you can pocket tax-free money when you travel with another healthcare professional because unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work that way.
- If you and your other half take placements through the same agency and both of you accept the housing stipend, neither allowance is taxed. This is also true for couple who accept jobs through different healthcare staffing companies.
- If you and your travel buddy work assignments with different agencies, one of you could accept company-placed lodging and the other could take the stipend without being taxed.
Regardless of what housing is ideal for you and your travel duo, Fusion Marketplace shows you all the options and information you need to make meaningful and educated decisions.
Travel pair perks
What’s better than one traveler? Two travelers! When you hit the road with someone else, there are tons of benefits to reap and lessons to learn.
First, it’s hard to feel homesick when you have a loved one traveling with you as a healthcare professional. The level of emotional support and understanding that your partner can provide for you and that you can offer to them goes a long way while away from home.
Secondly, traveler duos have the chance to make more money, and Fusion Marketplace makes it even easier to do so with amplified transparency into a job’s pay package. Now that you and your travel buddy have added visibility into what to expect when it comes to your finances, you can effortlessly determine if a job will work for your duo or if you should continue your job search.
The final advantage is the most obvious—the chance to explore new destinations with someone else or maybe more. Nothing makes a memory more special than the shared experience. Fusion Marketplace offers complete autonomy into where you go and when you work so you can strategically plan your healthcare career and future with a special someone.
Traveling the country as a healthcare professional is extremely rewarding, but somehow a little better when you have someone to share it with. Fusion Marketplace streamlines the job search process for traveler couples and allows you to match your duo’s goals to your next healthcare assignments with ease. Easily decide your group’s next best move with enhanced job transparency, personalized job searches, and more with help from Fusion Marketplace.
