Re: Licensure

It is typical for an agency to reimburse your licensure fees if they employ you in that state, so keep records. I have heard of companies that will help get new licenses for you - ie help with the forms and verifications, but have no experience personally with this. Honestly, I think it ticks off th...

Re: HAWAII

Hawaii is all about timing - it can be hit or miss, but there does tend to be a steadier flow of jobs than there used to be. The trick is beating out the other 20 applicants that are likely to apply for the same job. I don't usually recommend this, but for Hawaii, consider giving you most trusted re...

Re: Alaska

Austin, I'll include some links to some of my blogs from my Alaska time. They aren't necessarily all my best work, but hopefully they can give you some idea about travel PT and also about doing an assignment in Alaska. I did an assignment up there in 2012. At that time, my wife and I did not get con...

Re: Unemployment between assignments ?

I have never done this or heard of a traveler doing this, but I have heard of ski lift operators here in Colorado doing it. I suppose they are in the same situation we are - temporary employment that has a set end date, so I suppose it can be done. For me it falls somewhere between "this is what my ...

Let me give you a couple links and see if it answers your questions, then come back and ask more if you still have questions.

Re: Ski Town Assignments...

So sorry for the slow reply... been in transit the last 2 weeks and just started work today in Aspen! The ski towns I know of mostly hire on direct contracts. Start calling the local hospital rehab departments and ask if they are looking for help. This is how I'm in Aspen for my 9th year and how oth...

Re: Car Insurance Suggestions?

Kate handles most of of insurance stuff, but this is what she tells me: She just gets quotes online 6 months at a time from the major companies - we usually go with Progressive or Geico. HOWEVER, ideally you have a tax home, so your car registration would stay in Michigan. You may call to update you...

Re: MY FIRST CONTRACT ...sort of... I have lots of ?????

I so badly want to trust your recruiter and say, "Don't worry about it!" But giving your notice and quitting your job is a really big deal... I would call your recruiter relentlessly to get a contract signed before you give notice. If you're on board and the school is on board, the contract should b...
