Occupational Therapy Travel Jobs
A job in occupational therapy can be a good way to make a difference in someone's life. It is also one of those jobs that are in high demand with a very low unemployment rate. Travel jobs in occupational therapy are in high demand as many therapists love to take the opportunity to use their job as a way to travel around and see the country at someone else's expense. Because of the nature of the job it can be short term and as such may not appeal to anyone looking for a job that keeps them in the same place over the long term. In recent years the number of travel jobs in occupational therapy has far outstripped the number of therapists looking for these short term jobs. The same can be said of many different traveling jobs in the medical field as the number of trained and certified professionals is not increasing as fast as the number of job openings. The average occupational therapy travel jobs involve the therapist being in one location for 13 weeks before they either go home or on to the next job assignment. However the time frames can vary from time to time depending on where the job is located and the facility providing the job.
It is the choice of the individual therapist as to whether they go home or on to another job location. Some therapists like to go straight on to the next job while others like to take a short break between jobs. Salaries for those employed in occupational therapy travel jobs is considered highly competitive and the more demand there is for therapists the higher the salaries are likely to go. Compared to the salaries paid to office bound therapists the difference is significant, which is part of the reason that many therapists choose this line of work for several years as a way to fund a new house or start their retirement fun. Some therapists choose this as a way of life for their entire careers often working specific summer and winter locations. However travel jobs in occupational therapy may not be for everyone. If you prefer to stay close to home or have a family you may be better off working out of an office.
