Re: Thinking about traveling

Goooood questions. Let's try to take them 1-by-1, I'm sure you'll have more questions later. I started with the company finding me housing just for ease, but haven't done that since my first assignment. If you find your own housing, you can usually find a better deal financially. But, since you'll l...

Re: PTA travelers?

No clue on # of PTA travelers... or I guess the real question is number of jobs available versus number looking. But, I have crossed paths with my fair share of travel PTAs, so they are out there. The geographic need might be a little more nuanced than with PT depending on what areas use PTAs more t...

Re: PTA travelers?

As for question 2, I would say the timeline is similar for PTAs. Not to say that you couldn't find an assignment further out under the right circumstances - it is just more common to find jobs on a short timeline. For questions 1, I honestly have no idea... let me see what I can stir up from PTAs an...

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. Personally, I have never incorporated myself, I have always worked as a temporary emplo...

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...
