Working with Advanced is better than working with other therapy job agencies because we have the ability and structure to market for individual needs. What does that mean? If you are a PT and you want HI, we will seek out opportunities for PT’s in HI instead of waiting for them to surface. However, our experienced recruiters will be truthful about the “odds” of this type of placement happening at any given point in your travel career and advise you appropriately. Did I mention we have the best recruiters around?

You are free to do as you please but your recruiter will explain to you that working with multiple agencies can potentially prohibit you from landing that perfect placement. If a client receives your profile from many agencies, they don’t have the time to go back to each agency and you to ask which company you prefer to work through. They will simply move on to the next candidate and you might not ever know if you would have been in the running for that particular job. Interview recruiters and agencies prior to submitting to any jobs. Pick one and go with it. We hope it will be Advanced! And make sure anyone who has your resume ALWAYS asks your permission to share it with anyone. That’s our policy here at Advanced.

Advanced offers travel assignments in PT, OT and SLP roles nationwide. These positions typically 13 weeks in duration, however this varies based on the clients' needs. School contracts are usually 9 months.

New Grads

Of course! Especially with Advanced. We paved the way for “new grad travel” with our ever growing University Program that offers layers of support to new grads wanting to travel right out of school. With this program, you will receive a clinical mentor, unlimited access to online CEU’s, tuition reimbursement, and our recruiters will make sure that first placement is “new grad friendly”. This means that there will likely be another person of your discipline on staff. We rarely, if ever, have new grads say “I wished I had waited to travel”. But we have a lot of experienced travelers say “I wished I had done this sooner, or right out of school”.

New graduates are eligible for exceptional benefits through the Advanced New Grad Program. These include things like tuition reimbursement, mentorship and continued education opportunities.

New graduates have access to the Advanced mentorship program that includes special mentors for SLP, OT and PT. In addition, we also offer mentors with experience directly related to Advanced.

Schools

Depends on the situation. If you are applying for a position that doesn’t start for a couple months, then no. If you are applying to an ASAP start position, then yes.

This depends on the state and the district. Some schools simply need for you to have a state board license. Others will require a special teaching certificate. Don’t worry if the certificate takes a long time to be conferred as many schools/states will allow you to work with a pending teaching certificate! Your recruiter and QA specialist will serve as your guides when it comes to navigating licensure questions. We have the answers!

Longer contracts with far lower likelihoods of a notice. All those school holidays you looked forward to as a kid? You will get those days off while on contract with us!

It depends on the opening. Sometimes a district has enough of a caseload in one building that you will be there for the course of your entire contract. Other districts may need you to float from one building to another. In situations where you need to float during the day, we will try to arrange for you to stay on the clock during the travel time from building to building.

Remember that favorite teacher you had when you were in grade school. That could be you! The impact you have on these children is truly amazing. At the end of the school year, you will be looking forward to your next school assignment in the next amazing location.

Of course not. We have many therapists who work in schools during the school year and then take medical assignments during the summer. The advantage to working with Advanced is that you have the ability to look at jobs in so many varied settings.

Not at all. We see openings in all geographic areas. Sure, some of them are super rural or in quiet, out of the way towns. But other jobs exist in urban areas as well.

Benefits / Compensation

Absolutely. You can work in one spot as a traveler for up to 12 months before you are considered local. During the course of your school year assignment, you qualify for all the travel stipends you would receive while on a shorter assignment.
