Staffing Agency vs Direct Hire
On the Conexus Medstaff Facebook page, one of the most common questions we often get asked by international nurses is whether Conexus Medstaff are Direct Hire. The answer to that is no, we are not Direct Hire. Rather, Conexus Medstaff are an international staffing agency that specializes in placing international nurses in American and Middle Eastern hospitals. What this means is that we will be your employer whilst you work in the US or the Middle East at one of our many client hospitals.
Your decision to start your US RN adventure with a direct hire company or an international staffing agency, like Conexus Medstaff, is your personal choice but it is important to do as much research as possible before signing a contract. To help you decide, we’ve put together a list of some of the pros of using an international staffing agency, like us, to help you achieve your American Dream.
By using a staffing agency like Conexus Medstaff, you have more security. By choosing Conexus Medstaff you will have a job waiting for you, in one of our many client hospitals, when you arrive in the USA. You do not need to worry that your job will disappear or be filled by another candidate before you have your embassy interview. A con about using a Direct Hire company to fulfil your US RN adventure is that your job can disappear before you have your embassy interview, meaning that you visa won’t be issued and ultimately your US adventure will be delayed.
No Fee to Pay
Conexus Medstaff do not charge our candidates any upfront fee and we pay for your visa processing for your EB-3 permanent residency visa, also known as a green card. If you are ever asked for upfront money, you need to look elsewhere.
Painless Sponsorship Process
We are with every step of the way. Our in-house Immigration team will guide you through and process your visa application, making what is a lengthy and often confusing task, manageable and straight forward for an international registered nurse.
Once you arrive in the USA our support doesn’t stop. On top of our benefits put together to make your new life in the USA easier for you and your family, the Conexus Medstaff team will always be there to guide and support you throughout the duration of your 5,000 contract with us and beyond. We are not just there for you on day one, but we are by your side every day! You will become a part of the Conexus Community, and will be visited by our friendly and supportive Operations Team on a regular basis.
