What Do You Do if the Worst Happens While Traveling?

Before you leave on any upcoming travels, make sure that you are covered by the NUSA Travel Insurance Program because there are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling.

Many travelers think their health insurance, homeowners insurance or even credit card will provide adequate travel insurance protection. Not so! The NUSA Travel Insurance Program makes it easy for you to analyze, compare quotes and purchase travel insurance, for any type of journey, from the top U.S. insurance providers.

In an emergency, you’d go to the ends of the earth for insurance services and protection – so why not just already have them in place? Learn more and get an online quote.

Working with Recruiters

Everyone has special talents that employers and recruiters can benefit from. However, just like any good product can sell better if it has an advertising campaign, you can increase your chances of finding the job you want if you advertise yourself to recruiters by calling some in your area.

Recruiters, also known as Headhunters, are people whose business is based on “selling” candidates to employers. Learn more on why recruiters are a good channel to use to find employment.
