As a new year approaches, we tend to look back on the past year(s) and reflect. Are we in the place we want to be or are we in pursuit of transformation? Another common element that comes with the chime of midnight on January 1st is a resolution we make to ourselves.
Whether you’re looking to meet new financial goals or pursuing a greater sense of purpose, we can show you how becoming a medical contractor can help you achieve your goals and resolutions in the future.
1. Switching to a new career or furthering your career
Thinking about a new career as a medical contractor? The new year is a great time for a career refresh and to pursue new opportunities. How is becoming a medical contractor different than a permanent position within a clinic or hospital?
Instead of working in the same doctor’s office, clinic or hospital for 40 hours each week, as a contractor you would accept assignments on an as-needed basis. These assignments can be placed in offices, medical labs, outpatient clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers and more. As a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, we often place candidates on exclusive government contracts throughout the U.S.
As a contractor, you can choose to remain a contract employee or use the employment as a starting point to eventually find a full-time position. It’s a great starting point to try out a specialty or role you’ve been interested in.
2. Meeting your financial goals
One of the benefits of becoming a medical contractor means you have the ability to accept assignments based on the pay and you have the flexibility to decide how to spend and save your earnings. Though you’d be responsible for paying taxes, you have the power to save for retirement and investing. In some situations, when a contractor is placed on assignment, housing expenses can be provided. This would be beneficial to those seeking to divert funds that would normally go to housing, elsewhere.
3. Starting your wellness journey as a medical contractor
In many traditional job settings, the 40+ hour work week is an expectation and your life must revolve around those hours. Oftentimes, it can be hard for healthcare and medical professionals to include wellness and health routines into their schedules. As a medical contractor, you have the opportunity to choose the assignment or schedule that is flexible with your life.
Real life with that traditional job we talked about doesn’t usually have a pause button. Working as a medical contractor allows you to slow down and take the necessary time to deal with life’s obstacles.
Moreover, if your resolutions or goals for the new year include incorporating more travel into your schedule, becoming a medical contractor might be the right path for your career and your life. As a medical contractor, you’d have the opportunity to work in and around your home area or travel to other cities for assignments.
4. Pursuing a greater sense of self-purpose
Is becoming more charitable or involving yourself in philanthropy on your list for the new year? While you can spend your free time volunteering, you can also check this item off your list as a medical contractor. Our medical contractors are often placed in veteran-based clinics, hospitals, and facilities. They often serve veterans and their families, providing necessary care and actively making a difference to those who fought for our nation’s freedom.
