As a medical traveler, you deserve the full, unvarnished truth. Your next medical travel assignment will determine not only your professional trajectory, but also your way of life. This is not the time to skimp on details.
Ideally, you will have the opportunity to put your knowledge and talent to work in a supportive setting, where you will be treated with the respect you deserve. You’re far more likely to thrive in your next assignment if you know exactly what to expect. That’s where the Triage team enters the picture. We’re here to guide you every step of the way.
Real About Expectations
Transparency is a big deal at Triage. You have the right to know exactly what your next assignment will look like. The more details, the better. This is not the time to be patronized or placated with a sugar-coated job description. You’re about to take on a huge personal commitment — shouldn’t you know if it’s worth your while?
Let’s be honest: no placement is 100 percent perfect. No matter how much you love your job, some minor downside will always exist. If you know what that looks like in advance, you can prepare accordingly.
Some minor sacrifices may be worth making. Some factors, however, will be instant deal-breakers. Better to find out now, before you’ve uprooted your life. Once you arrive at your job placement, you should be able to focus on your work — not on difficult circumstances that make you miserable.
In addition to providing you with a ton of upfront information, your Triage recruiter will encourage you to speak your mind. Questions are welcome, no matter how obvious they may seem.
After meeting with your recruiter, you should be fully in the know. This in-depth understanding will grant you the confidence needed to succeed in any placement.
Real About Expectations
Trust lies at the heart of the most successful recruiter-traveler relationships. Our recruiters make every effort to build that essential sense of trust by learning the details of your professional journey. Over time, they will become intimately familiar with your expectations and priorities. They want to know what makes you tick. This attention to detail allows them to find you the best opportunities — and to sidestep the jobs that are most worth avoiding.
For instance, be upfront about your goals. Are you wanting to try the travel gig because you’re a mountain-climbing, bungee-jumping thrill seeker? Or are you traveling to get a shot a working at some nationally-recognized hospitals with the best of the best physicians? Each are equally important and could come with different sets of compromises.
Think of our recruiters as professional matchmakers. We’ll scope out the bad apples, of course, but that’s only the beginning. A great matchmaker can build romantic excitement by bringing together people with similar passions and interests — and we do the exact same in the professional sphere. Bonus: our placements are a lot less awkward than first dates!
As you enter your next medical travel assignment, you should feel fully prepared for the personal and professional adventure that lies ahead. At Triage, we are committed to providing the respect and transparency you deserve. We’ll happily offer the boost you need to reach the next rung on your personal career ladder.
