I was looking around today on the net and stumbled upon this interview here about being a Physical Therapy Assistant:
"Physical therapy is an easy going field. Physical therapists are a fun group of people to work with. There isn't a lot of stress, as there is in the business world. Here, there is no corporate ladder. You are what you are. You try to do the best you can. If things go well you can move into research."
"I love the fact that I can help people almost instantly. It's like a puzzle. You break things apart and help put them back together. Like Sherlock Holmes with the body."
"There's no stress for PTAs. "
"If you want more responsibility, it's not the route to go. For instance, it's not true that you can use your PTA degree to become a PT. You have to start fresh and start over. If you think you want to be a PT, just get your master's or doctorate right away."
"You'll get a lot of personal satisfaction out of this job. You see quick results. You get to meet interesting people. But if you're going into PT to get rich, then this isn't the job for you."
Sounds like a possible INFP job...what do yall think about this job? Have you heard anything about it?
The only thing I'm worried about is job security and getting caught up in routine (obviously the pay isn't great, but its a trade off for the lack of stress i guess; maybe become a personal trainer on the side?)
