SNI Search Division
While SNI’s primary business is independent contracting we started a search division 2 yrs ago and are having good results. Each month we are placing nurses, NPs, Mgrs and Directors in full time positions. If you are looking for a full time job in addition to contracting please let us know, the process is different but we are succeeding...here are some of the facts:
The market in the Philadelphia, Leigh Valley and Jersey region is tight but there are also openings ( SNI primarily serves the 3 hr radius from Philadelphia but for current and known contractors we will make search calls anywhere in the country).
