Searching for a new permanent nursing job can feel like a job all on its own! But if you have a healthcare recruiter in your corner, they’ll make sure that the process is as easy as possible for you. Permanent placement agencies will work with you to guide you through the job search process, from the first job post to the final interview and beyond.
Ready to start looking for a new position? Here are five things a recruiter will do to help you find your perfect job:
1. Research Available Jobs in Your Area
Every good job search starts with finding out which open positions are available in the location where you want to be. Whether you’re looking to stay in the same city or move across the country, your healthcare recruiter will find open positions that match your skill set. Permanent staffing agencies have access to jobs that may not be advertised anywhere else, giving you an advantage over other applicants!
2. Provide Information on Cost of Living & Industry Trends
Your permanent placement recruiter’s research and insights don’t stop with open jobs. They’ll give you information on the area where you’re looking to work, insight into salaries and industry trends, and even help with cost of living details. This can be especially important if you’ll be moving to a new city or state for a new job.
3. Help with Your Resume and Interview Answers
Permanent staffing agencies work with a lot of employers and applicants, giving them specific insight into what employers are looking for when it comes to a resume and interview. Your recruiter will share that insight with you to provide you with an advantage over the competition! They’ll help you format your resume before sending it out to an employer and then work with you on interview preparation tips and tricks to make sure you nail it!
4. Follow Up with The Potential Employer
When you apply to a job on your own, you’re often left wondering about the status of your application. Did anyone even read it? How did your latest interview go? What is the employer thinking? Your recruiter will use their relationships with employers to get that information for you so that you’re not left in the dark. They’ll even help negotiate salary and benefits requirements on your behalf. When you work with a permanent placement agency, you don’t have to worry about your application getting lost.
5. Check in After You Start Your Dream Job
Congratulations! You were hired for a new permanent RN job! After you receive the good news, your recruiter will continue to stay in touch. Be sure to share any concerns or questions that you have so that your recruiter can follow up and help you with the transition into your new role. They’ll check in throughout the onboarding and training process, making sure your first days, weeks, and months on the job are what you hoped for. The relationship doesn’t end just because your new job started! Your relationship with your recruiter will be a helpful resource throughout your career.
