Why a Recruiter Works Better than a Job Board

Searching for a job in the healthcare field is arduous and overwhelming. People often scour over job boards in search of their ideal job and spend hours perfecting their application only to be dismissed. Applying for jobs can feel like a full-time job itself, and when you have bills to pay you might be anxious to get started.

Thankfully, job boards are not the only option when you’re applying for a healthcare position. One of the best resources to utilize during the job hunt is a healthcare staffing firm. These businesses have dozens of skilled recruiters that can help you land the next step in your career.

Whether you’re a nurse, therapist, speech pathologist, or any other type of clinician, working with a professional recruiter is the way to go. Here are some of the reasons why a recruiter works better than a job board.

Protect your Privacy

When you use a job board to start your search, you often have to provide some of your personal information. Though it’s easy to believe this information is only used for simple reasons, the reality is that it can have more severe consequences.

Not only can strangers easily access the information you provide, but the job board could also inadvertently notify your current employer of your job search. A recruiter will only give out your information when they have your permission. Your job search remains confidential, and your information is protected.

Inside Knowledge

The job of a recruiter is to be familiar with the hiring process and get to know their client. When you work with an experienced recruiter, you have access to all their knowledge regarding the role. They can give you insight into the company’s culture, hiring practices, and expectations.

A good healthcare staffing agency invests in the success of its clients. Recruiters can edit your résumé, coach you on the interview process, and help you accept a job offer from a top-notch company.

Stand out

When you post on a job board, you are little more than a résumé. Thousands of job seekers put their information on job boards with the hope that the perfect employer will stumble upon it. A recruiter cuts out the middleman and gets your application directly in front of hiring managers.

Once you spend time working with a recruiter and allow them to learn more about you, your recruiter can advocate on your behalf and make sure your application stands out. The recruiter knows about your interests and skills and can present them to hiring managers in the best light possible.

Reduce Job Search Anxiety

As we previously mentioned, the job search can feel like a job in itself. Since very few of us have the time to sift through thousands of job descriptions every day, it’s common to do the bare minimum and call it quits.

Recruiters do the hard work for you and reduce the anxiety that comes with job searching. They can help schedule interviews, track your résumé, and keep you organized throughout the process. A recruiter can give you peace of mind knowing that someone always has your back.

If you’re serious about moving to the next step in your career, ditch the job board and enlist the help of a recruiter.

Why Nurses Choose to Work in Schools

School nurses are more than just the people who put a bandage on a cut and fix a runny nose. Not only do they take care of school children’s various aches and pains, but they also educate students and teachers on the importance of health and how to take care of their bodies.

Though it may seem challenging at times, being a school nurse is rewarding and offers a variety of benefits. Here are some of the reasons travel nurses choose to work in schools.

Easy Schedule

Working at a school means that your schedule follows the typical hours of a school day. Unlike working at a hospital where you may work nights and weekends, school nurses are only required to be at work when children are in the building. You also have most holidays and breaks off, meaning that for three months each year you have a nice summer vacation.  

Long-Term Contracts

Working as a school nurse also gives you a long-term contract. While the typical travel nursing contract is only about 12 weeks long, working at a school means that you are placed for the duration of the school year. Travel school nurses can expect a 43-week contract, allowing you to increase your experience and work with the students you love.

Variety of Job Roles

Working at a school doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be the school nurse. If you want to work in a school, positions can range from working onsite treating children to one-on-one care with medically frail children who need assistance getting to and from school.

More Autonomy

As a school nurse, you are considered the school’s expert in all things medical. Working in a school setting means that you don’t have to follow the orders of other doctors or higher-ups. You can make your own decisions and advise students and teachers about their health.

Helping Children

School nurses have the unique opportunity to work with children and educate them about their health. Your job promotes healthy and successful students. You can also work closely with individual students that may need more attention to help them develop and thrive.

Working as a nurse in a school setting has an array of benefits that make for a great experience. If you’ve realized these benefits and want to get started as a school nurse, contact Ardor Health Solutions today. We are a healthcare staffing company that can help place you at the school of your dreams. Contact a recruiter today at 855-GO-ARDOR to learn more.
