Recruitment companies for CRA jobs and the salary arbitrage in clinical research

Many people are naturally attracted to the world of clinical research monitoring as a career due to the relatively high salaries.  There is currently a huge demand for experienced clinical research associates, but what does one with little to no experience do?  I always recommend you get started as a clinical research coordinator or clinical trial assistant, however there may be another option: recruitment companies.  These organizations are paid by contract research organizations or sponsors to find qualified candidates to be hired as CRA's (monitors).  In this video I discuss some of the salary arbitrage that goes on in these situations.
