In this episode of Traveler Minute, Michelle talks to Dylan Callier about strategies to use when the market is bad.
Dylan is a Doctor of Physical Therapy currently on assignment in Chico, California, and the founder of the podcast New Medical Nomads.
Dylan was hiking Machu Picchu when the country was closed down at the start of Covid. He talks about the challenges he had in getting back out of the country to the USA.
Dylan’s tips this week are strategies to employ when the job market is tough. At the time of recording, they were only nine physical therapy jobs open across the country. He talks about the need to consider alternative types and locations of assignments, ones that you would normally not have considered in a normal, active market. He describes how he changes his thought process in considering assignments, and how that helps his chances at landing the next contract.
Dylan also talks about the importance of building up a small nest egg of cash in the event of longer time off between assignments. This gives a traveler more time and flexibility in finding their next assignment.
