Should I Travel during the Holidays?

A common theme that I see with travelers is to wait until after the holidays to start a new travel assignment. There are many pros to waiting until after the holidays to find a travel assignment but are you aware of the advantages of traveling at that time? Here are three reasons why traveling during the holiday season can set you up for success.

Less Competition

With everyone waiting until after the holidays to looking for an assignment, this gives you more options to choose from for an assignment. You will not have to compete with as many travelers wanting the same location, pay, shift, facility size, etc. You will have better probability of getting the assignment you wanted. By accepting a travel assignment before the New Year, you will avoid the influx of travelers/competition that waited until later to find an assignment. 

Holiday Pay

Who does not like a bit more money in their pocket? When you travel over the holidays and work on the main holidays, your wallet will thank you.

Experiencing the Holidays in a Different State

I have talked with several travelers that have never experienced the holidays in a different state/climate. Aureus Medical will see needs everywhere ranging from the sunny skies in Florida to the winter wonderland in Alaska. You have the chance to take an assignment where you can check off this bucket list item and experience the holiday season in a different place.
