Thanks to Carl, it’s easy to find your unicorn travel job. And you can do it in three easy steps:

  1. Find a travel recruiter who gets you
  2. Share what you want in a travel job
  3. Sign the dotted line when you’ve found the assignment that has it all

In addition to Carl, you need a (human) travel recruiter you can vibe with. Your recruiter will be your go-to person throughout your travel career, whether you need advice, a friendly ear, or help in a sticky situation. If you don’t already have a reliable recruiter, check out this guide for how to find the best recruiter for you.

It can be tough to narrow down what you want in a job. If you’re riding the struggle bus on step two, we suggest writing a pros and cons list. Think about your dealbreakers and must-haves, as well as the things you’re willing to be flexible on. Maybe one of your dealbreakers is a specific shift type, but you’re willing to compromise when it comes to the job location. Whatever your priorities may be, let your recruiter know so they can help find your unicorn job.

From there, just let your recruiter — and Carl — do their thing. When they find a job that checks all your boxes, they’ll send it to you to see what you think. If it fits your fancy, then simply sign the travel contract. It’s as easy as that!



Don’t settle for a job that doesn’t give you what you want. Instead, tell your recruiter your top priorities and allow Carl to work his magic to find the travel job that's best for you!
