It's interesting to note that when you work for a recruiter like PPR Healthcare, you actually get more personalized attention than you do working for a large organization like a hospital, health club chain, or anywhere else you can find physical therapy assistant jobs. Think about it. Have you ever worked at a hospital where you're not even sure what the administrator's name is? Chances are you wouldn't just stop by his or her office, stick your head inside the office, and ask for help finding a better apartment. You see, you just can't do that with a “regular” job.
When you work for PPR Healthcare Staffing, you get the benefit of working one-on-one with someone who becomes your assistant, your confidante, your guide, your coordinator, and your lifeline. You'll be assigned a recruiter who is familiar with whichever geographical area you chose to work in. It's one thing to work all day (or night – depending on your shift), but you'll want to find something to do on your downtime. Think about your own hometown. There are probably dozens of little known but fabulous restaurants, parks, lakes, beaches, trails, shopping boutiques, or artisan shops that only the locals really know about. When you relocate to take on a travel therapist job, you may not have the inside information on all of the little treasures the place has to offer. However, your recruiter will know and because he or she gets to know you personally, they won't send you out digging for clams if you have an allergy to shellfish. They take the time to get to know you, which makes all of the difference in the world.
