Tip of the Week

Occupational therapists focus on a variety of issues, including workplace ergonomics and rehabilitating disabled individuals. But before launching your career as an occupational therapist, it helps to have a few tips.

Earn a bachelorís of science degree in occupational therapy. These programs are offered across the nation and prepare you for occupational therapy jobs.

Take the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) exam. Passing this test will make you a board-certified Occupational Therapist (OT).

Determine what type of setting is right for you. Occupational therapists have many options including working in hospitals, doctors' offices or franchises. Focusing your job search will allow you to be more satisfied in your career.

Also, remember to partner with a staffing firm who specializes in occupational therapist employment. Companies like Clinical One already have relationships established with companies hiring these professionals, making it easier to find a job.
