Choosing what you want to do as a career can be intimidating. How will you know ahead of time that the work you choose to pursue will be right for your life? While this can be a difficult question to answer, your best option is to learn all you can about a career before you start working toward it.
In the video linked in this blog post, two physical therapists with many years of experience discuss their careers. They do their best to give viewers an overview of their profession, including information about salary expectations. But money alone isn’t the only important factor to consider.
They also discuss the right personality fit for their profession. Most importantly, physical therapists have to have a sincere desire to help people from all walks of life. Your future patients may not have taken good care of themselves and may be irritable from their pain. If you don’t like working with most people, you may find yourself unhappy with your career choice.
If, after watching the video, you feel like you really do want to pursue this career path, don’t stop there. Reach out to a top physical therapist in your area to learn even more about what to expect.
