Welcome to the show notes for Episode 102 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.


Are you a new grad OT practitioner ready to find your first school-based OT job? If so, hit play now!


In this episode, I am interviewing Jhenny Rivera about her recent experiences of searching for, finding, interviewing, and starting in a school-based OT position as a new grad OT.


Jhenny graduated from OT school in the summer of 2021, passed the OT boards in the fall, and landed her first school-based OT job in January of 2022. That is why I have asked her to come on the OT Schoolhouse Podcast to share how she achieved her goal and what she learned in the process. We talk not only about the hiring process but also about what the first few months were like as a new grad school-based OT.
