You're the best!
I have a plan. After knowing I need at least 6 mo. ICU experience, I am planning to transfer to an ICU in the city when my lease is up (June). The officer health care recruiter in my division is not helpful at all. He was basically like, this is what I need, let me know when you get it, kbye. I had to contact a different recruiter, same type, just not in my division, to get helpful information to make reasonable decisions regarding what's next and if it's even worth it. I also talked to another recruiter, who is just a general officer recruiter who offered to put me through MEPS and the background check in the interim I'm waiting to get the ICU experience.
So I'm wondering if I should go through MEPS and the background check now before I make my move to the city and hopefully have it all completed, or at least in the process of completion, so that when I get down there I can just focus on working? He said it's transferrable and good for two years. And what advice do you have for working with recruiters? Obviously some are better than others, but unfortunately the one who will most likely be processing my application is on the more lazier/careless side. 😑
My goal is to get selected. So whatever I can do to expedite and make myself a worthy candidate I'm willing to do. Any other advice would be appreciated.
