Say Hello! to Chris Hackett — Therapy Recruiter
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
Why would I want to work in schools?
Longer contracts with far lower likelihoods of a notice. All those school holidays you looked forward to as a kid? You will get those days off while on contract with us!

Do you offer free continuing education?

Why is working with Advanced so much better than with other therapy job agencies?
Working with Advanced is better than working with other therapy job agencies because we have the ability and structure to market for individual needs. What does that mean? If you are a PT and you want HI, we will seek out opportunities for PT’s in HI instead of waiting for them to surface. However, our experienced recruiters will be truthful about the “odds” of this type of placement happening at any given point in your travel career and advise you appropriately.
