January 23, 2018

You’re at a crossroads in your career

When considering a change, what are the boxes you want to tick before making the leap? Is the industry you’re moving to stable, or better yet, growing? Is that growth reflective within the company you’re considering? What kind of opportunities are available to you, both today and in the future?Most of all—will your work make a difference?If you’re ready to move into a rapidly growing industry in which your work will make a meaningful impact, consider a new role in the healthcare sector—specifically healthcare staffing. Here are three reasons why now is an ideal time to land a job in the healthcare staffing industry.

1. Healthcare is growing

By 2025, healthcare is on track to make up 20% of the entire U.S. economy. What’s more, the healthcare staffing industry is growing at a faster rate than any other staffing sector.That substantial growth is reflected within the walls of Health Carousel’s eight office locations—and in hospitals across the country where our healthcare professionals work. In 2017, the Cincinnati Business Courier recognized Health Carousel as a Fast 55 company for the second consecutive year. Health Carousel was also named the seventh-fastest growing healthcare staffing firm in America in 2017 by Staffing Industry Analysts.

2. Opportunities are available

There is a wide variety of opportunities open to you within the healthcare staffing industry. For example, positions in finance, marketing, recruiting, credentialing, technology, and human resources all impact healthcare staffing companies in significant way.One of the hottest jobs available right now is that of healthcare professional recruiter. At Health Carousel, the position of recruiter is multidimensional in nature. It’s part travel agent, part sales, part customer service, and part hiring manager. Our recruiters bring all these elements together to push the company forward and help connect patients across the country with qualified healthcare professionals.

3. Your work will make a difference

No matter what role you serve in the healthcare staffing industry, you are connected to a mission that makes a difference. There is a growing shortage of qualified healthcare professionals across the nation. To ensure that patients receive the quality care they deserve, healthcare facilities must find a solution; they often turn to healthcare staffing companies for temporary and contract employee placements (i.e. travel nurses, locum tenens, and international temp-to-perm) to help fill that widening gap. The work of healthcare staffing companies helps nurses and doctors find rewarding assignments in various locations and specialties across the nation.Check out our Higher Purpose video to learn more about how our employees connect below.
