"A great company with a lot invested in their employees" Every employee of SOS I have ever come in contact with is reliable, honest, friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. They are quick to respond to questions, concerns, and are very accessible. They strive to find good placements for their employees, and they share all relevant information that they have and let you decide.

"SOS is the best "travel" company out there!" I worked for SOS for approximately 9 years. From the beginning, they were supportive, available, and treated me like family. You are in control of your assignments. SOS asks where you want to be located and after interviewing, you decide if that's a good fit. Of course I had a few challenging school placements, but I always felt I could call someone at the office and they would help me come up with solutions/offer support. I had one particularly difficult situation my first year. The owner of the company called me personally on the weekend after a stressful event to check in with me and offer support!

"SOS is the best "travel" company out there!" SOS places their employees in superior housing (in comparison to the 2 other companies I contracted with), paying for furniture and utilities. I've had the opportunity to work/live outside of LA, San Francisco, Napa, Chicago, North Carolina, and Virginia Beach. Those were some of the best 9 years of my life!

— Amy L., MS, CCC-SLP, VA

"I can truly say that I am extremely happy to be an employee of SOS. Everyone has been helpful in all transitions. The placement was a perfect fit. I have been happy to go to work unlike in the past. Having worked in school districts directly and through contract work, it is easy to see the benefits of working for a company who is employee driven. SOS is all about keeping their employees happy and satisfied.""

Applicants

Transitioning from student to professional, from one state to another or from one clinical setting to another can be a confusing and overwhelming time. The SOS Team has prepared this information to help you learn to navigate your way through the job search process, license process and to successfully establish yourself in your new position.

Our jobs are in school settings in the following 12 travel states:

Click on a state above to inquire about the jobs available in these areas.

Employment Structure:

SOS directly employs our staff to work in the facilities of our clients who contract services, usually for a specific need and for a specific period of time. We do not utilize 1099 Independent Contractor agreements. There are many benefits to you as an employee, including health insurance and other benefits, such as professional dues, CEU assistance, sick pay, 401k retirement, etc.

You can interview with SOS in any of our positions without being committed to accept a position for which you interview. We work to make sure you are completely comfortable with an SOS position prior to accepting your new position with us.

The majority of SOS staff are in local school positions. Local and Travel jobs are actually the same jobs, but are categorized differently based on your qualifying characteristics. The two designations are used to distinguish between the two compensation packages we can offer based on the location of your place of employment in relation to your legal residence. If you accept a position that is further away from your legal residence than you can comfortably commute, then we can provide you with tax-free company paid housing and the position is designated as a Travel position. This employment status is defined by the federal tax code and if you meet this criteria you are eligible for a range of tax advantages in addition to the benefits that are directly provided to you by SOS on a tax-free basis. See our Travel Information page for more information.

Clinical Settings:

As an SOS employee you will work primarily in schools. School positions are generally for the entire school year. Some short term, part time and PRN positions are also available so ask the Regional Manager for your areas of interest about all of the options available in your target area. SOS is a therapist owned and managed company that puts your professional interests and well-being first. We understand the unique needs you have as a educational professional and are committed to helping you to successfully launch your career. Thank you for the opportunity to share in detail the unique benefits of working for SOS.

We frequently speak to graduating therapists regarding their employment search process and the employment climate they will encounter after graduation. We would be happy to make ourselves available to speak on campus to students if that would be of benefit to you. We also look forward to answering any other questions you may have. See our FAQ page for more information.

SOS Employee Salary and Benefits:

Your hourly rate can vary based on the geographic area, cost of living, clinical setting, etc. We evaluate our compensation package on an ongoing basis to make sure that our salaries are among the highest available in each market. The SOS Benefits package is superior to those generally offered in Travel or Contract companies in several areas.

In a school setting, both programs provide a guaranteed work week of 35, 37.5, or 40 hours per week through the school year, and the option of ESY summer work in some locations. So long as your employment with SOS remains unbroken, your insurance benefits remain in place at the company's expense even if you choose to take the summer off. You can elect to be paid for time worked throughout the year as it is earned, or you can choose to receive your pay on a pro-rated basis over 12 months, similar to the compensation options offered by public school districts.

We are currently offering Masters and Doctorate level new graduates employees who sign a one year (one school year) employment agreement a sign-on bonus, including CF-SLPs.

In addition to your hourly salary, we offer our staff top tier health care coverage, prescription, dental, vision, and life insurance benefits. So long as employment is ongoing, insurance is provided over the summer as well. Other benefits include SOS providing or paying for all required state license(s), all required but non-reimbursed medical tests and, relocation expenses up to $500 per assignment, an annual subscription to an on-line CEU portal that is available 24/7, accrued sick pay, professional liability insurance and other insurance coverage as required by law. Beginning with their second year of employment, you are eligible to participate in our 4% company matched, 401k plan.

Clinical Settings:

SOS employees work primarily in schools. Travel and temporary contract positions in medical settings generally last for only a few months, while contract positions in the schools are generally for the entire school year. This means that if you are working as a Traveler in a school contract you will usually be in the same place for the entire school year.

SOS is a therapist owned and managed company that puts your professional interests and well-being first. We understand the unique needs you have as a new graduate and are committed to helping you to successfully launch your career. Thank you for the opportunity to share in detail the unique benefits of working for a Travel company. We frequently speak to graduating therapists regarding their employment search process and the employment climate they will encounter after graduation. We would be happy to make ourselves available to speak on campus to students if that would be of benefit to you. We also look forward to answering any other questions you may have.

Permanent Placement Services:

SOS also works with a limited number of clients for Permanent Placement services each year, primarily in the states in which we do not offer contract services. If you interview for a Permanent Placement job, you will be employed by the client instead of by SOS. The important thing to know about SOS's permanent placement division is that we are a licensed private employment agency and that you will never be charged a fee or otherwise penalized for seeking employment through our agency. Your benefits and compensation plan for a Perm position will be determined by the client employer, not by SOS. Contact us for more information regarding Perm Placement.
