When occupational therapists get a taste of the huge range of opportunities that our member agencies have to offer, we hope we can get a big 'Amen' from many of them.
Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
Occupational therapists help individuals deal with the social, emotional, and physical effects of aging, illness and injury and the demand for individuals with this type of expertise continues to grow. Realizing the importance of staying involved in all aspects of the occupational therapy profession, Allied Travel Careers will be exhibiting and participating actively in the 2009 AOTA Conference & Expo in Houston from April 23- 25 in Houston, TX.
But the company, which specializes in providing supplemental recruiting services to travel healthcare recruitment agencies, has a mission for this conference. "Our intention is to elevate the awareness of occupational therapy travel opportunities and educate OTs about the very unique personal and financial benefits associated with OT travel jobs," states Oliver Feakins, Vice President of Sales for Allied Travel Careers.
"In a sense," says Feakins, "we are 'travel evangelists.' "
This will be the 89th annual gathering sponsored by the American Occupational Therapy Association. The event provides the opportunity for occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, educators, students, equipment suppliers, medical facilities and staffing agencies to meet, network, and learn. Therapists will be exposed to the latest techniques, programs and innovations in an industry that assists millions of people maintain active and productive lives.
While demand is high in all rehab disciplines, OT travel jobs are particularly difficult to fill. This challenge has prompted Allied Travel Careers to take aggressive action to locate and interact with potential travel therapists by participating in therapy conventions and exhibitions.
Oliver Feakins believes that the 2009 AOTA Conference is an excellent venue to meet occupational therapists and speak to them about the unique benefits of becoming a traveling occupational therapist. "We have found that there is a lack of awareness among rehab therapists about the special advantages associated with travel. Occupational therapists willing to take on travel assignments can visit virtually any part of the country that they would like and receive outstanding compensation," says Feakins."
"When occupational therapists get a taste of the huge range of opportunities that our member agencies have to offer, we hope we can get a big 'Amen' from many of them."
Allied Travel Careers began the service of providing supplemental travel therapy candidates in July 2008. The company had already experienced great success within the travel nursing industry through its sister division, Travel Nurse Source. In short order, Allied Travel Careers achieved the same level of participation as Travel Nurse Source and now has a waiting list of agencies seeking to participate.
