The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the job demand for technologists in the radiology and MRI fields is growing faster than normal, and that extends to X-ray techs. The growing demand on the nation's healthcare system means medical employers across the country often post-travel X-ray tech jobs to ensure they have the qualified professionals required to care appropriately for patients. That's great for techs looking for work — whether you're new to the career and looking to grow your resume or you have years of experience and want the flexibility to check things off your bucket list, traveling x-ray tech jobs offer exciting opportunities.
