Once upon a time there were two Occupational Therapists...

... and so begins the wonderful story of two women who met through NYSOTA, put their minds and creative spirits together, and developed what has become a leading staffing agency in the NY Metropolitan area, Therapeutic Resources.

Lisa Davis and Marilyn Rosee work with OTs, PTs, SLPs, Special Educators, COTAs, and PTAs placing them in preschools, NYC public schools, hospitals, skilled rehab facilities, Early Intervention, Orthopedic and Hand Treatment Outpatient, and much more all in the Metro NY area, Westchester and Long Island.

With thirty years of experience hiring, educating and placing therapists, as well as the nurturing and development of their own successful careers as OTs, Lisa and Marilyn can "write the book" on best practices in charting a professional path in occupational therapy.

And that is exactly what they did!

Lisa and Marilyn found it surprising that there isn't a "go-to" resource for the OT or OTA student to have when they embark on their professional journey.

With this in mind, they have written Occupational Therapy Student to Clinician: Making the Transition to help students hone the skills employers look for in new hires. While many academic programs cover career-oriented topics, this is the first specific text to pull the pieces together with the purpose of showing readers how to become successful job candidates and employees.

Perfect for the student preparing for an occupational therapy career, Occupational Therapy Student to Clinician covers all pragmatic issues that students face while securing their first job. This text outlines a variety of topics including resume writing, interview skills, negotiating a salary, working within a team, developing professional competencies, and understanding the culture of an organization. Each chapter includes learning objectives and lists of practice activities that students can use to reinforce their skills.

Occupational Therapy Student to Clinician: Making the Transition will benefit OT and OTA students preparing to graduate, as well as employed clinicians dealing with specific employment-related issues. This text will also guide the employee who wants to move to the next job and reacquaint themselves with the job-seeking process. This comprehensive resource provides strategies and solutions for many employment challenges and will be an asset in any professional development curriculum. The Table of Contents (shown left) illustrates the breadth and depth of topics this book covers.
