Between constantly updating your resume and uploading your most recent certifications and licenses, you have a lot to keep track of as a professional travel nurse or allied health traveler. Luckily, with Fusion Marketplace, you can easily start your new year off on the right foot and get organized in just four easy steps.
No. 1: Create a Marketplace profile
Step no. 1 is, by far, the most important move and that is to create a Fusion Marketplace traveler profile. To do so, all you need to do is enter your email address, set a secure password, and then verify your email. Once you’ve confirmed that you are, in fact, who you say you are, you can start to personalize your account by adding a custom biography, a profile picture, your healthcare specialty/specialties, and other details you want future employers to know.
What’s the big deal about your traveler profile? Well, your personal profile is the perfect place to highlight special skills and healthcare expertise. In an oversaturated market, your Marketplace profile helps to set you apart from other healthcare travelers.
No. 2: Upload and save your credentials
Now that you’ve created your Marketplace profile, it’s time to upload and save your professional credentials to prove to future employers that you are qualified and ready for the job. In addition to your earned certifications and obtained state licenses, include your previous employment history, as well as your level of education.
Then, add both personal and professional references, just in case potential employers want to get to know you a bit more before they make the decision to hire you. If you have any other helpful information or documents that you want healthcare staffing agencies to see, there’s a space within your traveler profile to upload miscellaneous documents.
When it’s time to update your professional information, all you have to do is enter your profile, and edit the section that needs to be updated. Gone are the days of rewriting and repeating information!
No. 3: Set your traveler job preferences
Not only can you completely customize your Fusion Marketplace profile, but this savvy online job board also gives you the option to set your traveler job preferences, so you see job search results only relevant to you. These advanced search features allow you to easily narrow down search results when it comes to your:
- Healthcare department
- Top five states
- Top 10 cities
- Three shift types
- Three job types
- Available start date
It can feel overwhelming to sift through tens of thousands of jobs on Fusion Marketplace. Instead of going through job postings one-by-one, set your traveler job preferences, and narrow down the search results to only jobs you want to see.
No. 4: Participate in recruiter ratings and reviews
So, here you are with a completed traveler profile, uploaded professional credentials, and set traveler preferences—now what? Now it’s time for you to participate in healthcare staffing recruiter ratings and reviews to share your experiences with others and learn about what others have gone through, too.
Do your research before you take an assignment to get a feel for the recruiter you’d be working with. Read the recruiter’s profile to learn ahead of time if the recruiter is:
- Experienced in the healthcare staffing industry
- Someone you can get along with
- Honest and transparent
- Organized and ready to help you
After you’ve worked an assignment, you can then rate your own recruiter on a five-star scale with one-star being strongly disagree and five stars as strongly agree. Consider these six recruiter characteristics:
- Did the recruiter meet my needs?
- Did my recruiter practice expert communication?
- Was the recruiter knowledgeable about the industry?
- Did you feel like you and your recruiter were a strong personality fit?
- Was the recruiter thoughtful of you, your wants/needs, and your time?
- Overall, do you feel your recruiter was efficient?
Recruiter ratings and reviews help you stay organized by giving you inside insight into the type of person a recruiter is. By doing research ahead of time, you can figure out whether you’ll work well with a particular recruiter, or if there’s someone out there that could be a better fit for you.
You don’t have the time to wait for someone else to get it together. Instead, take your healthcare travel career into your own hands and get organized for the new year with Fusion Marketplace. Start 2022 off on the plus side and create your Marketplace profile, upload your credentials, set your preferences, and leave a recruiter rating and/or review. Use these four easy steps to get organized and stay organized for the new year to come.
