I don’t know about you, but I have a list of cities I’ve always wanted to live in. With so many friends of mine spread throughtout the country I have seen a lot of what these United States has to offer and so should you. If you’ve ever given thought to picking up and starting anew, a travel therapy or rehab job can be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Deciding to take on a traveling career is enough of a big decision, but thinking of it as a scouting trip can make it seem less stressful. In a lot of cases, your contract can range anywhere from 13 weeks to a year, which gives you ample time to discover if the city is where you could see yourself planting roots. If you’re like me, you have family, friends and the connection to community. So when it comes to deciding to leave that all behind, you want to make for certain that wherever you choose is the right place for you and whomever else you have in tow.
Lucky for you, working a travel therapy or rehab job affords you the “regular” hours and your freetime in which to discover all that your new assignment city has to offer. There will be plenty of time to make new connections and network. You can get leads on neighborhoods right for you and your family, schools for your children. If you’re single your choices are even greater and you can really pinpoint what it is you’re looking for since you’re doing it for yourself. There are so many variables to consider when moving so the best way to ensure you lock down an assignment in the cities you’d like to live in would be to work with a number of agencies. But don’t get too carried away, keep to your list and something is bound to come up. The need for therapists and rehab specialists is constantly growing, so your chances are very good that you’ll land where you want.
With all things considered, a traveling therapy and rehab job is the great way to audition the cities you’d like to live in one day. Who knows, you may not ever move and keep your home base, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come back to those other cities on another assignment or just come back for vacation.
