In today’s episode, we continue to learn more about Carrie’s Locums Life and really focus in on the realities of locums and how they differ from a traditional job. Be sure to go back and listen to episodes 1 through 3 of this series prior to listening to this one.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The realities of locums and how they differ from traditional jobs.
  • How the lack of job security in locums can be difficult and unpredictable.
  • Why you should always have a backup position lined up so you don’t lose income.
  • How you may have to wait a while to get into a new position based on your specialty and the time it takes to get credentialed.
  • Why it’s super important to have a hefty emergency fund for time in-between jobs.
  • How you might want to look into getting licensed in states, that have jobs available, ahead of time so you don’t have to wait for licensing later on.
  • Why Carrie feels that she appreciates her work and specialty more now that she has had some time off and started locums in a new location.
