They are your advocates on the road. And they work hard to make sure their travelers are informed and happy.
Ghosting, an act we may categorize as something that only happens when “retiring” personal relationships, has shifted to the professional space as an employment trend. It’s on the minds of many HR and recruiting professionals. And unfortunately, it’s on our radar as well.

Will work for travel. That’s a slogan we use a lot around here. We love it because travelers WORK hard. You worked hard to earn your healthcare degree. Most of you are working hard to pay off student loans. And for 13 weeks you work hard to be of service to each and every patient who entrusts you with their care. Then you pack it all up, move, and do it again. That’s hard work.
We like working hard and being of service too. It’s basically our entire job. To be of service and support the healthcare professionals who work here. We like to think it’s why we connect so well with the travelers who choose Cariant. They get it. The being of service. The balance of play (or travel) with the responsibility of being as helpful as you can to whoever needs that help.
We work hard for you. You work hard for patients. You work to travel.
If you want to learn more about our philosophy, and hopefully have a conversation or two, you can find our team at AOTA in Salt Lake City this week, and at schools and national shows throughout the year.
And of course you can always find us here, working hard. Just like you.
