Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
What questions should I ask my Travel Nurse recruiter that I probably wouldn’t know to ask?
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
There is no “set” list of questions you should ask, other than those on which you feel you need more information. If you don’t understand what a “tax advantage program” entails, how the company handles your housing, if they match anything for their 401K plan, basically anything on which you lack knowledge, feel free to ask.
Your recruiter should be your resource in the company and should be willing to spend the time with you to answer all your questions. This is also a good assessment tool in knowing how good a recruiter you may have been paired with, as those who do not have much experience may not know the answers, fumble through them, or even grow impatient with having to answer them. As much of your travel experience is dependent on having a great recruiter, you will want to assess this any time you begin with a new company. Whether or not you are with a good “company” is only half the battle — a recruiter matters a lot!
