Say Hello! to Chris Hackett — Career Consultant
Nice to Meet You!I have been in the recruiting industry for a combined 8 years. I Joined our schools team to help expand the reach and gain additional footholds in Special Education Departments all across the country. My recruiting knowledge, in combination with my experience in various industries, allows me to bring a different perspective and outlook to the table. Having constant contact with my therapists allows me to live vicariously through them, and I feel like, I too am along for the adventure. I love what I do, and the people I work with, I can’t imagine a more suitable job for myself if I tried.
Fun FactMy love of the outdoors came to me at an early age. I was lucky enough to be able to go to summer camp in Vermont when I was about 8 years old. I was able to do things like; rock climbing, kayaking, Spelunking etc. This sparked a love for the outdoors that still exists today. Being able to live in Colorado, helps me to sustain that very same lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can new grads travel?
Of course! Especially with Advanced. We paved the way for “new grad travel” with our ever growing University Program that offers layers of support to new grads wanting to travel right out of school. With this program, you will receive a clinical mentor, unlimited access to online CEU’s, tuition reimbursement, and our recruiters will make sure that first placement is “new grad friendly”. This means that there will likely be another person of your discipline on staff. We rarely, if ever, have new grads say “I wished I had waited to travel”. But we have a lot of experienced travelers say “I wished I had done this sooner, or right out of school”.
Does Advanced offer clinical support?
What if I am a new graduate?
New graduates are eligible for exceptional benefits through Advanced's New Grad Program. These include things like tuition reimbursement, mentorship and continued education opportunities.
Do I need to be licensed to submit for a school position?
Depends on the situation. If you are applying for a position that doesn’t start for a couple months, then no. If you are applying to an ASAP start position, then yes.
Do you have other travelers I may speak with to gain their insights on traveling?
Yes, the Advanced "Advanced Mentors" program provides a wealth of information and an opportunity to connect with well informed mentors in the field of travel therapy.
