5 Easy Ways to Build a Long-Lasting Rapport with Your All Star Healthcare Solutions Recruiter
Your recruiter will become one the most impactful people on your locum tenens team. Here are five simple things you can do to ensure a fulfilling and rewarding working relationship with your All Star Healthcare Solutions recruiter.
- Be Forthright
Being upfront with your recruiter gets the locum tenens process off on sure footing. Inform your consultant about all the necessary details to advocate on your behalf with hospitals, clinics, private practices, and other healthcare organizations seeking locum tenens professionals. What’s more, a complete summary of your education, training, professional experience, malpractice history, and employment gaps can help speed up the credentialing process and get you into a locum tenens job in a timely fashion.
- Identify Assignment Preferences
We know your time is valuable and best spent treating patients, so All Star’s consultants do their best to present locum tenens jobs of most interest to you. To be truly effective, share your practice preferences. Key them in on your ideal locations, facility type, and contract specifics, including call duty. Also, let your recruiter know which details are flexible. Exercising a degree of flexibility may open the door to unexpected and fulfilling experiences.
- Ask Questions
Your recruiter will collect a multitude of facts about any locums job before presenting it for your consideration. You will learn about the facility and city, the contract start and end dates, and an overview of clinical qualifications. However, you may wish to have additional details. Ask as many questions as you feel necessary to make an informed decision. This not only helps you assess the opportunity at hand, but it also gives your recruiter a fuller picture of the type of specifics important to you.
Of course, your consultant will ask questions, too. During assignments, they will check in to inquire about your experiences on the job. They also will ask about your final thoughts after a contract’s completion, including how All Star can best meet your needs. Our goal is to support you throughout the entire locum tenens journey.
- Be Responsive
Communication is vital in any relationship, including the one with your All Star recruiter. Set yourself up for success by stating your preferred modes of communication: phone calls, emails, and/or text messages. Still, some exchanges, such as requests for documentation, are best handled through emails. Perhaps you’d like a heads-up notification via text that there’s an important email on the way. Additionally, it’s beneficial to all when messages and calls are returned promptly to keep the process rolling.
- Stay In Touch Between Assignments
Whether you choose to accept one locum tenens opportunity after another or only occasionally agree to an assignment, keep the lines of communication with your recruiter flowing. They may call between jobs because a position opens up that matches your profile and preferences. Then again, they could reach out just to hear what’s new with you as friends and colleagues do.
