Be open to different locations and settings so that you are marketable. The more open you are, the more experience you will gain which then allows you the ability to get the more desirable assignments later on. So start out with being very open and flexible.
Act as though you are interviewing from the moment you start your travel search. Your recruiter will be your best friend but it begins with earning professional credibility from the start. Remember that healthcare is a small community, your reputation means the world so protect it by putting your best foot forward each and every time.
Do a self-check! Travel is 13 weeks and can be lonely at times so how adventurous/social/__________ are you on your own? Are you a go-getter? Do you require hand holding? All things to consider before putting on the travel hat.
