Looking for love in all the right places.

Single and loving it or single and hating it? It’s safe to assume most of us who are single would fall into either category. I would say it all depends on your priorities and what you want to accomplish with your time on this planet. Some of you may be jaded with the idea of finding that one true love while others are relishing the opportunities to meet so many different people and simply enjoying their company.

There are so many ways one can look at the single scene. I won’t input any of my own personal experiences, (we’ll save that for my memoirs!) but I can tell you that living in the same city your whole life can really limit you to exposure of what else is certainly out there. Not that it’s a bad thing, but there are 6,809,383,757 people in the world as of today and 307,946,234 people in the United States alone. Surely one of them is meant to be, right? So what’s this got to do with being a traveling therapist? Well, for one, being a traveler means just that. You can leave your homebase for 3 months at a time and travel to all these different cities you may have never had the chance to see before, all thanks to your short-term contract work in travel therapy.

Working in rehab and therapy usually entails pretty normal working hours, like 9 to 5. This would allow you to take advantage of the nightlife and culture of whatever city you’ll be dwelling in for the next few months. So there’s no excuse that you’re working crazy hours and that the only people you meet are street sweepers and various other night owls. You’ll have as good a chance as the next person to get out there and meet all kinds of folks. In July, Forbes magazine released an article and Top 40 list of the best cities for singles in the United States. There are of course your usual suspects like New York City, Boston and Chicago, but there are also some “sleeper” cities in there that really surprised me, like Milwaukee! Milwaukee, really? I guess so. Find out for yourself and see if there’s any cities that made the list that you’d like to visit. Think of it as your “Little Black Book” for dating by city.

Here’s the link to the Best Cities for Singles 2009 article in Forbes. Maybe your city made the list and you’re just having bad luck? Or maybe there’s a city listed that you’ve always wanted to visit and now you’ll have all the more reason to go. If by chance you do meet your soulmate because you read this article or post, please share. I’d like to think I was a part of that! Now get out there and get to work, on your traveling assignment as well as your love life.

Interview your recruiter

One of the key things you will discover during your travel therapy career is that your recruiter is going to be a big part of your life from now on (or at least while you are traveling). They will help you find a job, housing, and basically just be there for you when you need them. Because of this, it is important that you are comfortable with them and trust them. So when you are talking to them take the time to interview them as well.

Here is a checklist of questions you can ask to get to know them better:

  • How long have you been in the industry?
  • How long have you been a recruiter?
  • Will you be my recruiter the whole time I travel with your company?
  • How many travelers do you work with currently?
  • What is the traveler to recruiter ratio at your company?
  • How many travelers are you allowed to work with?
  • Tell me about yourself? Where did you go to college? Where are you from? Etc.
  • How often will I hear from you?
  • How will I hear from you? Email? Phone? Text? Etc.
  • What makes you different than other recruiters?
  • What do you do to help your travelers succeed?
  • Why do you work for this company?
  • What do you like about your company? Dislike?
  • What’s your sign?

Remember, don’t be shy. This is your therpay career you are partially putting in their hands so it is important you are comfortable with the relationship.
