When taking a travel assignment, you will work with a variety of individuals who will aide in your success. However, it is important to know why they all work together and how you can help make the process smooth.
The first point of contact you will have with your agency is with a Recruiter. Your recruiter will get to know you, help put your best foot forward and submit you for open opportunities that match your criteria. Open communication is key when working with your recruiter. You can read more about this here.
When considering an assignment, you may also be in contact with an Account Manager. Our account managers specialize in working directly with the facilities that we have open positions in. If you were to take the assignment, the account manager would become a primary point of contact for you through the duration of the contract. Similar to your relationship with the recruiter, having strong communication with the account manager will be important, as they will be able to answer position and facility specific questions.
Once submitted to a new assignment, the account manager will arrange for your first interaction with the Facility. For many, this first interaction is through a phone interview. To feel the most confident and prepared for the conversation, check out these tips in one of our other blogs.
Backgrounds, Verifications, Compliance

A large portion of meeting compliance is with state licenses and certifications. Read about staying up to date and proactive with licensure.
The final step of becoming ready for your upcoming adventure is determining where you will be staying with Housing.

Of course, our travelers can also choose to find their own housing arrangements by using the housing stipend provided for the assignment.
