Unprofessional recruiter- need advice

  1. I am in need of advice from some experienced travel nurses. I am embarking on my journey to be a travel nurse. I have been talking to 3-4 recruiters about different contracts, etc.. Recruiter A sent me a list of positions, and I agreed to be submitted for a couple positions. With recruiter B , I also agreed to be submitted to a couple different positions. I asked Recruiter A to send of a list of those positions that I was submitted for, and it was many that I never agreed to. I asked recruiter A about this, and she blew it off and stated that the list had the positions I agreed to as well as open needs. Later the same day I hear back from Recruiter B, staying the facility I was submitted to by her also had another submission from recruiter A. I explained the situation to recruiter B, and she fixed the situation with the facility. My question is- How do I go about "dumping" recruiter A? I feel that she blatantly lied to me regarding the submissions I never agreed to, and I do not think I can work with her anymore.

    Call her up and tell her that she violated your trust and not to contact you again. Simple as that.

    Yeah, just say you're not comfortable with her process and will be working with someone else.

    I agree 100% with all your replies so far. I don't want to blame you in the slightest for any of this, it sounded like you were clear about what you wanted. But you may need to work on your self esteem if it is this difficult to end a simple business relationship. You are a valuable professional and should blow off anyone who doesn't treat you as such.

    "I do not think I can work with you any more, good bye."

    "No thank you, I'm not interested in that position, good bye."

    "I'm working with another recruiter, good bye."

    Don't answer any more phone calls from that recruiter.

    Don't answer e-mails.

    Sure, some hospitals will work with you. The easiest to to switch to per diem with an annual shift requirement, pay period or monthly requirements are not really compatible with travel. Consider also that seasonal travel done on a personal basis preceded the travel industry. For example, the census in Maine and other parts of the NE drops precipitously in the winter at the same time census is increasing in Florida and other snow bird destinations. So it is a win win for hospitals and employees involved.

    But no matter your specialty, you can work full time as a traveler with no problems, you don't need a safety net.

    Try to get another recruiter from the same company- talk to the manager. It just sounds like a bad apple...
