The Perks of a Job Portal: Make the Most of your Traveler Career

February 28, 2022

Jobs are everywhere in the news these days. Whether it’s about people getting jobs, changing jobs, or altogether leaving jobs, there’s no escaping the hot topic of employment. And one of the hottest areas of discussion is healthcare staffing. So, it makes sense that travel nurse and allied health jobs, and the best way to get them, has evolved in recent years. For many travel clinicians, this means finding assignments through job portals. Let’s look at what that means and how it works.

What is a job portal?

Reasons to make a profile in a healthcare staffing job portal.

Though arguably not as thrilling as portals in Sci-Fi movies, job portals do lead to adventure. These online vehicles also give you superpowers – allowing you to review and apply for up to thousands of travel assignments. Job portals in the healthcare space are usually hosted by agencies and offer access to each agency’s pool of listings.  

The design and abilities of job portals vary greatly, but almost all follow a similar process:

  • Sign up to gain access  
  • Create a profile to determine job matches
  • Apply for any or all qualifying jobs

Healthcare staffing agency job portals are not created equal

True, those three steps are nearly universal. The difference is some healthcare staffing agencies go beyond that. Far beyond that. Because just as no two candidates are alike, neither are job searches or preferred styles of seeking employment. The best job portal for your search depends on your wants and needs. A good place to start is by reviewing the varied added perks that set the best healthcare staffing job portals apart.

The big difference is your clinician control of the process and recruiter/team support throughout the search. Sure, you can find good travel nurse and allied health jobs on your own or through a bare bones portal. It simply won’t be as easy or comprehensive a search and might come without any support. Key features to look for include comprehensive listings, true transparency, tech that delivers, and a human touch.
