I'd like to take a moment to kick this thing off by stating the soon-to-be obvious.. I'm not your average Recruiter. I'm not a resume shuffler. I'm not an email spammer. I am not an order taker. In a sense, I have an anti-sales approach to recruiting. Yes, I possess a killer motivation to fill jobs and make placements. I don't make money if you're not making money. However, long before that first billing cycle takes place there's an opportunity for communication, trust, and transparency. And that, my friends, is where the magic happens. There's no bait and switch.

The elephant in the room is that all of us Recruiters typically have access to the same stuff. Contracts, rates, perks, etc. So you may be scanning your computer screen or scrolling the wee window of your smart phone with the touch of your fingertip, wondering to yourself, "Why Alisha?"

I'm glad you asked. Unlike the corporate giants in the industry, I have the luxury of "boutique" style service. Which means my nurses receive a highly personalized experience for the duration of the recruiting cycle. Beginning to end. I'm not just sniffing out key words in your resume and hastily pushing you along. Waiting for the stars to align long enough for me to cash my check. I enjoy the introductory conversation as I do my best to fully understand what it is you DO (slow down, I'm not a nurse. I don't even play one on TV) and try to get a feel for what it is you WANT. At that point I let you know what I can do for you. One thing I always make a point to tell my nurses is they have to go with what works for them, even if that means (sigh) going with another Recruiter.

Then we get down to business and discuss next steps. available contracts, compensation, and yes I prepare you for the grueling credentialing process. I try to make it as painless as possible and yes I will remain your point of contact, down to arranging accommodations & the mint on your pillow. Ok that last part may have been an exaggeration.

So there you have it. Something maybe the other guy isn't telling you and a preview to what I hope to be a long lasting Recruiter-Travel Nurse Relationship. I try to contact everyone as we connect but my human limitations make that less than realistic.

Reach out. Let's chat. I look forward to getting to know you.

I just signed with Alisha and she is awesome! I had been holding out for a job in San Diego for months, and she was the ONLY recruiter able to provide me with with a job opportunity, AND an interview the next day! Alisha is super quick to respond, always follows up, and is just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her and Axis! :)

Alisha is hands down the best recruiter I have ever encountered. Prior to her I had 3 companies, all sub par. I have now dropped contact with the three companies and will use her exclusively. She is very motivated, made the application process extremely easy, and ensured I received the pay package and dates off I was in need of. She also went out of her way to find an additional contract in the area I was looking for. She truly cares, and will answer your questions/concerns with honesty anytime of day. I HIGHLY recommend her if you would like a stress free travel assignment!

I have had an amazing experience so far with Alisha R. as my recruiter. Anytime I need anything, she is immediately available to help. I feel very supported in my career and am very happy with my job placement! She has made everything super easy and has been awesome in every way. Thanks to Axis and Alisha for everything!

Alisha Rourk is the MOST AMAZING AND CONSIDERATE recruiter/person I believe I have ever met. (and I'm very old and have been a nurse for 32 years.) Alisha is so very kind, would give you the shirt off her back, would do anything in her power to place you in a successful environment. She give 110% to her job and then some. She truly cares about all of HER NURSES and that's why we all love working for her so very much. I have been in management before in my long nursing career, and Alisha is the type of employee I prayed I would have apply so I could hire. Please clone her and make millions of Alisha's so the world will be a much better place...all my love, Nanette, RN, BSN
