Travel nursing checklist item #10: Applying for travel nursing jobs

Share

Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back to this, but things have been pretty hectic the last couple of months.

OK, so you have all your paperwork lined up and organized. You have done your research and spent time online looking at all the different companies. You’ve compared what they offer to what you want out of a travel nursing job. The next step then is to actually apply online for the travel nursing job you want. You can also call the company right off the bat, but I will cover that later.

When it comes to applying online you actually have a few options. You can apply individually to each site or go to anyone of the several available job boards that allow you to apply to more than one company at a time. Each of these options have advantages and disadvantages.

If you apply to just one company at a time it will obviously take you longer, depending on how many you apply to. Also if you limit yourself to few companies you may need to expand your search if none of them meet your needs.

If you apply to a job board, like RNVip.com or Absloutley Healthcare, you can be prepared to be contacted by all the companies that pay for access to that site. Often these sites can also take you longer than the individual websites do because they are trying to pass on only the best candidates to the affiliate companies.

No matter which path you choose or combination of both be prepared to be contacted quickly.

Oh and one last piece of advice to make this easier for you, make sure you use your “AutoFill” tool on your Google toolbar. It will help you fill out a lot of the basic info on online apps with the click of a button.
