Gone are the days of extensive internet job searches and long phone conversations with healthcare facilities—the healthcare staffing industry has advanced into a traveler-first market. But, what does that really mean?
It’s tough to navigate the healthcare job market. With many different types of healthcare traveling job opportunities and several open positions around the country, finding your ideal travel placement can be a challenge. Additionally, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts more than 2.4 million healthcare jobs will become available by 2029, increasing your career options and competition. With a 15 percent growth rate over the course of a decade, the healthcare job market is expected to trend upwards, expanding the need for professional healthcare workers in the U.S.
Made up of 20 million American employees, the U.S. healthcare industry has had the highest employment rate since 2018. As the country’s largest employer, it’s even more important for professional healthcare travelers to set themselves apart from the abundant competition.
“Patients don’t know who we are or what we do, but they trust everyone in the room to take care of them,” said Stephanie Allen, surgical technology instructor at Herzing University. “I take pride in knowing that a patient trusts me to do my job well and to be their advocate.”
Between the extensive paperwork, state-by-state licensing requirements, and submitting multiple job applications, landing a new travel assignment can be a major headache for professional healthcare travelers. What if, instead of juggling dozens of tasks and to-do’s, there was one convenient online platform where your travel job preferences, qualifications, certifications, and more could live? What if you were able to see multiple career opportunities all over the U.S. from several staffing agencies and had the power to choose your next move with just one simple click? What if this one-stop-shop already exists?
Now more than ever, a healthcare traveler’s “speed to market” is absolutely vital. Speed to market is the time it takes for a business or agency to present a product/idea to the market. In the healthcare traveling industry, the “products” are the professional healthcare travelers, and the “markets” are the facilities that need a helping hand from a healthcare professional. As the competition for healthcare travelers grows, travelers need to work quickly and efficiently to land their ideal placement.
