Travel nurses and therapists are now able to scoop on the best available healthcare jobs and stay updated effortlessly through American Traveler's web site, a leading travel nurse staffing agency. New job postings are added hourly on the web site’s Hot Healthcare Jobs page, while a Jobs RSS feed delivers the hottest opportunities in nursing jobs and physical therapy jobs to subscribers’ emails daily.
These features give travel nurses and other allied healthcare professionals immediate access to great new position openings with up to 110K per year in earning potential, as well as a heads-up about availability across the nation for critical care jobs, case manager jobs, occupational and physical therapist jobs, just to name a few.
In addition, there are several other improvements and features to the American Traveler site that really aid the search for healthcare jobs:
- The Quick Apply button - located next to each job listing on the Hot Jobs page. With one click and a few nursing job application fields to fill out, the applicant can apply immediately to a particular nursing job.
- Job Details page - just click on a specialized health care job listing such as physical therapy; a page that describes that physical therapy job in greater detail will come up with location, length of the assignment, and other specific job information.
- State-by-state Hot Jobs listing - by clicking on the nationwide opportunities map, candidates can see all the healthcare jobs in a particular state, such as California nursing jobs.
- Benefits Information for travel nurse jobs are included in specific job details –including standard free private housing, free health insurance, and licensure services.
“With unemployment rates at an all-time high and the economic climate unsteady, hospitals and rehab centers are waiting to post open positions until just a few weeks before the actual start date,” said Mary Kay Hull, Vice President of Recruitment at American Traveler. “Time is of the essence; posting with hourly feeds reaches qualified candidates who are interested and ready to start travel nurse jobs right away. Client facilities have been very satisfied with the response time and the accuracy of the candidate match.”
