Say Hello! to Jake Gonzales — National Career Consultant
Nice to Meet You!Jake grew up in Northern California with the dream of playing professional football. He joined the military at 18 years old, deployed to 11 different countries while serving in the US Navy Special Forces from '02-'08. During his service he survived a helicopter crash and went through intensive rehab for 1.5 years to relearn how to use the right side of the body again. Jake then moved to Japan and opened two bars and three restaurants. After surviving the 9.0 earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Jake moved back to the U.S. to obtain his BA in Social & Criminal Justice. Jake ended up getting into the recruiting world in 2013, where, "I found a great environment that allows me to sit in the A/C and just enjoy my work." His hobbies are reading self-improvement books, camping, fishing, drawing and painting, and watching a movie with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Fun FactI lived in Japan for almost 7 years.
What My Travelers Have to Say Give Feedback
- Jake initially reached out to me because I had traveled with a subsidiary as a CST. When he first contacted me I did not have enough experience to travel, but that didn't stop him from putting in work. For 9 months Jake worked with me to get licenses and line up an ideal assignment that fit what I wanted out of Travel nursing. Jake exemplifies professionalism with an extremely personal touch, he was always available to me and returned all messages promptly. Giving up a great job and leaving the familiar is never easy, but with Jake in my corner it could not have been easier.
- Jake has gone above and beyond for me! I’m glad he is my new recruiter. He has my back. Feels good to know I don’t have to shop around for other recruiters
- Since day one with Advanced Travel Nursing, Jake has been by my side helping through this adventure called travel nursing. He is an excellent recruiter, helping and guiding me along. He's always looking out for my best interests as a travel nurse both in career and financial growth. His transparency is refreshing and admired. I cannot express how much appreciate my recruiter. He is excellent and the reason I love working with Advanced Travel Nursing.
- My boyfriend and I just started working with Jake and he is laid back and super easy to talk to. He is very helpful and gets things done quickly. He goes above and beyond to show that we are appreciated. We love Jake as our recruiter!
