Full-time permanent? You get benefits. Good! There aren’t many growth opportunities but to move into the corporate side of the company, or reports side.
Others might say, “this is a great entry level job for Kinesiologists.” But we are regulated professionals and should be treated as such. We should be able to make clinical decisions, and focus more on client care, and less on laundry, cleaning, and passive modalities (that are not evidenced based). Transition the role away from PTA and more towards RKin because that’s what the role deserves. We are more than an assistant. We are part of the interdisciplinary team with a focus in active rehabilitation. So stop delegating IFC, TENS, U/S, and let us create strengthening and work conditioning. Stop blending the RKin role with PTA, cleaners, laundromat, and student intern tasks. But treat us like the professionals that we are. So unless this company changes their perspective on the respect given to Kinesiologists, this role IS a stepping stone. Then go ahead and chase after that bigger dream, where your work and effort will match the compensation.
Quick learning curve. Great team, if you’re lucky. Good skills to add on your resume.
Ceiling, too many passive modalities, doing laundry, cleaning, finishing tasks that are not completed by the individuals
