Prepare your resume

Writing a resume can feel daunting when you have limited experience to share. Mitigate that by emphasizing the areas you studied most closely while in your school or training program. Highlight the practical knowledge you gained during internships or volunteer opportunities, and note any past experience with traits transferable to your new career.

Interview well

Your resume is your foot in the door with an employer. How well you interview determines whether that door will remain open. Prepare for your interview by role-playing with a friend or colleague using common interview questions. Research the company where you’re interviewing to gain usable intel, then write your own list of questions to ask at the end of the meeting to show your interest in the company.

Leave stress behind

Stress can get in the way of successfully launching then enjoying your new career. You can experience worries and anxieties over leaving your familiar home, starting a new job and putting your newly gained skills to the test. Don’t miss out on opportunities by succumbing to that stress. Instead, borrow a practice from Buddhism and work on your mindset to adopt a positive attitude about change. Mindset work helps you reframe concerns and keep them in perspective. Then, you can fully enjoy the excitement of travel therapy jobs that allow you to explore new places.

Reap the benefits

Travel therapy careers offer many benefits, including lucrative pay, generous housing stipends, challenging new opportunities every few months and the ability to travel nearly anywhere you want within the United States. Grow your bank account while writing a blank check for your future career options.

Grow your career

Grow your career as you travel the country. Travel therapy jobs typically last from a few weeks to a few months. The flexibility, knowledge-gaining opportunities and experiences you’ll have as a travel therapist can prevent burnout in your career while preparing you to take on additional challenges in the future.

Explore the country

The travel therapy jobs you explore could be a continent away or right around the corner. Either way, you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to steering your career to the geographic location you’d like to explore next. Treat each experience as educational travel and grow your mind and your skillset at the same time as you’re advancing your career.

Embrace the process of landing the best new grad therapy jobs now by preparing well and designing your expectations to experience the best possible start to your career.
