Recruiter relationships with their travelers go far beyond finding the right travel assignment. They can be a go-to resource for your most important questions, and a shoulder to lean on when things get tough. But nonetheless, the bond you form with your recruiter will likely become your greatest strength. Having someone in your corner can make all the difference.
To showcase the many personalities we have at AHS, we want to shed light on some of our most seasoned recruiters. People who have built long-lasting relationships with their travelers and continue to lend a helping hand for those looking to get into travel nursing.
We spoke with Brandon Marshall, recruiter, and sports aficionado, and this is how it went…
What do you like most about your job?
“I enjoy being able to work with my friends (travelers) every day. Knowing what about their goals and aspirations, and how we can obtain that together is the most rewarding part of being a recruiter!”
What type of certifications/specialties do you work with?
“I work with all RN’s, PTs, OTs, and SLP’s.”
What question are you asked the most lately and what is the answer?
“The question asked almost always is “Do you ever sleep?” My response is always, “Only when the people on my team don’t need help. We are in this together and if that means staying up until 2 am or waking up at 7 am to make sure your questions are answered, we do whatever it takes.”
What are some of your hobbies?
“I’m a sports aficionado. There’s almost always some sort of sporting event on my tv and enjoy going to see live sporting events.”
Where are you from?
“I’m originally from Chicago, moved to California when I was 22, and now reside in South Dakota (It’s like Narnia but a real place, haha)”
How would you define your personality?
“I would define my personality as someone who enjoys having fun, even keel, and will always tell you what you need to hear, not what you want. This is to ensure that you have all of the knowledge to make sure you’re doing what’s best for you. Trust, safety, respect, and communication are very important to me, as well as having a fun and open relationship with anyone that comes into contact with myself.”
What’s an interesting fact about you?
“After moving to South Dakota I was able to live my sports dream by going to see the Cubs Championship run by going to a game in the NLDS, NLCS, World Series, and attending the Cubs World Series Rally.”
