Diane M. Kelly | posted February 22, 2012 |
If you’re an allied healthcare professional looking to take your career to the next level, you might want to hit the road. Travel therapists, including occupational, speech and physical, have huge opportunities available through this area of the industry. These jobs are often high paying with great benefits and offer the chance to see new parts of the United States, 13-weeks at a time.
Top ten reasons to switch to travel therapy jobs
1. Flexibility of work. You get to decide where you want to go and what type of position you want to fill. Plus, if you love your destination, you can easily arrange to stay for another 13-week assignment or even find a permanent position.
2. Fantastic housing. Your private housing is free and often located in prime spots with lots of amenities, like a pool or a gym. It’s always turnkey ready—walk in the door, and everything is in its place, from fresh linens to dishwashing detergent.
3. Personal attention from a 360 staffing consultant. We’re all about your happiness, so we work closely with every therapist to determine hours, location, housing options and transportation in your chosen city. This is VIP customer service.
4. Continuing education reimbursement. You have to take a certain number of continuing education classes each year to keep your license current and at 360 Healthcare Staffing, we pay for your classes in whatever city you choose.
5. Confidence building. Working in a variety of therapy settings with different kinds of co-workers and patients builds your skill set and confidence.
6. Get a bonus when you refer a therapist. Through our Bucks for Buddies program, you can earn cash when you refer a therapist who is hired by 360 for a travel position.
7. Go beyond the guidebooks. You’ll get to know your travel cities better than any vacation-goer because you’re there longer. Sites and attractions will come alive for you when you travel this way.
8. Lighten your load. One of our 360 staffing consultants handles all the details—your job is to do great on the interview, pack your gear and get ready to hit the road!
9. Finish your bucket list. Plan out all the places you’ve wanted to see and start checking them off as you travel to each assignment. Make maps and guidebooks your new bedtime reading.
10. Improve your cultural literacy. In today’s marketplace, the ability to work with people from all walks of life is an essential skill set. As you travel and work, you’ll learn all about the diverse cultures in our country.

An Occupational Therapist (OT) who is a traveler can experience the same high demands as those who are working in a permanent setting, but may not have a local emotional support structure to help them weather the storm.
