Charlotte, NC, October 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- CMS Direct Hire, a Charlotte-based recruitment firm specializing in placing physical, occupational and speech therapists at healthcare facilities all over the country, is promoting National Physical Therapy Month by showcasing the benefits of choosing this profession as a career.
Each October, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) celebrates National Physical Therapy Month to encourage awareness for the physical therapy (PT) profession, and the many ways this practice transforms the healthcare field by improving patients’ quality of life and speeding their recovery.
As Baby Boomers continue to age, the healthcare field in general is responding by growing and advancing for the senior segment of the population. This is especially true for rehab therapy, says CMS Direct Hire Manager William Moore, commenting on the surge in demand for physical therapists across the nation.
“Therapists have more opportunities now than they ever have,” said Moore, who has been recruiting rehab therapists and placing them in their dream jobs for more than five years. “As the demand for PTs, OTs and SLPs grows, facilities are offering higher salaries, added benefits, more flexible schedules, and encouraging their staffs to specialize in what they love. It’s a great time to be a PT.”
With the market flooded with jobs, many therapists are conducting their search through recruitment firms like CMS Direct Hire. These companies help candidates find opportunities based on their unique search criteria, analyzing their preferences when it comes to location, setting, specialty, salary requirements and more.
“Not only is physical therapy meaningful to the patients receiving life-changing treatment, but it is also meaningful to the PTs themselves – seeing the difference they’re making in people’s lives is why they chose this path, and that deserves to be celebrated,” said Moore.
