For many reading this, the hard times of occupational therapy school are finally over. No more exams or practicals sounds great, but – here comes the dreaded question — what now? Which occupational therapy specialty should you choose? With so many practice areas in existence and AOTA adding still more, it can be a daunting task to figure out which area calls to you most. Maybe you’ve always known you wanted to work as a pediatric therapist but, after that, the details get a little fuzzy. Or maybe you’ve had a level II fieldwork at a hand therapy clinic where the patient population really appealed to you, but you don’t know if you can pass the complex certification test.

Taking your time before jumping into travel therapy after graduating is an excellent idea. Travel therapy is a great experience for the obvious two key reasons.

  • You get to travel
  • You make good money doing it

Jumping right into travel therapy as a new graduate is not for everybody. I’m not saying it's the worst thing, but I think working a little while at a stable job that can teach you a lot, not just about being an occupational therapist, but about the ins and outs of the career, is really important.
