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
What mentorship is available for new graduates?
New graduates have access to the Advanced mentorship program, which includes special mentors for SLP, OT and PT. In addition, we also offer mentors with experience directly related to Advanced.
Should I work with multiple companies when trying to find a travel therapy assignment?
You are free to do as you please but your recruiter will explain to you that working with multiple agencies can potentially prohibit you from landing that perfect placement. If a client receives your profile from many agencies, they don’t have the time to go back to each agency and you to ask which company you prefer to work through. They will simply move on to the next candidate and you might not ever know if you would have been in the running for that particular job. Interview recruiters and agencies prior to submitting to any jobs. Pick one and go with it. We hope it will be Advanced! And make sure anyone who has your resume ALWAYS asks your permission to share it with anyone. That’s our policy here at AMPS.
