- Figure out where you want to specialize. Working as a travel therapist gives you a chance to experiment with different settings and patient populations. Once you have figured out your niche, you can settle down with a permanent employer.
- Tax advantages. Because who wouldn’t want to get a portion of their pay TAX FREE!? Did you know that if you travel more than 50 miles from your permanent residence for a position, you are eligible for a tax free stipend that covers meals and housing? Awesome, right?
