@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk can remember starting as a student and hearing how there were many jobs, then increasing fear as NHS went through changes(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:09:27 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat @AgencyNurse welcome! and yes the tranistion phase def crosses the MDT #OTALK (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:09:27 +0100)

@clissa89 @munchknmunch yes same here, I remember becoming increasingly worried about the job situation as graduation drew closer #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:09:50 +0100)
@AgencyNurse RT @OTalk_Occhat : @AgencyNurse welcome! and yes the tranistion phase def crosses the MDT #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:09:55 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 The surprise for me is the jump in terms of responsibility goes. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:09:58 +0100)
@_samrutherford #OTalk @r_spells How are you finding it? Anything like placement?(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:00 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @r_spells : Im about 2 months into my first OT job, graduated in Nov last year, soon to rotate ekkkk #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:06 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT I agree, I knew that was coming, but jump in responsibility was still a lot to take in when reality hit! #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:24 +0100)
@CarmenOTstudent #OTalk Q1. trying to keep up with everyone else! hard when you dont know the setting well and everything is new.(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:30 +0100)
@Flawson12 @clissa89 positives: great supervision,well supported, right balance of independence and support and build up of cases #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:33 +0100)
@pd2ot I’m watching #OTalk tonight, hoping to gain tips on managing the transition from student to practitioner.(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:35 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 and I think for me (gonna be with a doctorate degree soon), there is also more expectations than say just a masters in OT. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:41 +0100)
@RachHallster My initial challenge was not having a direct OT supervisor, but found regular TM’s with the OTA’s useful #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:10:59 +0100)
@clissa89 @Flawson12 that support is so important! #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:04 +0100)
@AgencyNurse really interesting chat going on via #OTalk re transition from student to practitioner … very relevant for nurses too #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:07 +0100)

@Symbolic_Life @clissa89 challenges is not knowing what practice I intend to focus on… #OTalk what should I know???(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 and for me- one thing I have learned so far is being more careful about what I say on social media. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:22 +0100)
@Fuzzybec #OTalk Main thing for me when I started my job was the responsibility. OT really can change lives can’t it!(Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:28 +0100)
@r_spells Q1. Ive had good days and not so good – confidence fluctuates massively! Also being so tired constantly #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:48 +0100)
@AgencyNurse What is the support like for newly qualified OTs ? Are there systems in place to make transition easier? #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:11:57 +0100)
@clissa89 I wrote a blog post about my own experience of the transition and how it’s felt like a rollercoaster http://t.co/VcvuXeOfcW #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:06 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @eileenhegarty7 are you finding the job hunt difficult? can be disheartening.. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @CarmenOTstudent difficult to keep up with others, especially if they are more experienced #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:18 +0100)
@JeSuisLucie BillWongOT @clissa89 how did you manage the jump in responsibility? #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:29 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @fuzzybec I think I’d like that jump in responsibility. I was a mature student and used to responsibility from previous work. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:29 +0100)
@Flawson12 @clissa89 challenges: only band 5 ot within camhs team,specialist role so not easiest sometimes, part time was hard to org apps #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:12:36 +0100)

@Louisa__x @clissa89 you’re post was great, a really interesting read 🙂

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @clissa89 well- you have to consider the landscape of US. New OT grads are coming out with masters. #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:13:41 +0100)

@AgencyNurse @clissa89 thats really lovely to hear … great that we can support one another through professional boundaries #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:14:49 +0100)

@gilliancrossley @eileenhegarty7 I can imagine keeping your skills up is great! very proactive and a good way to sell your self to potential employers #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:14:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT and sorta related- I realized what I said on the Autism Live web show today carries a LOT more weight! #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:15:12 +0100)

@Richardsblister @clissa89 hopefully you reflected on how special that moment was? #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:44:41 +0100)
@Flawson12 @clissa89 agree..I have had a lot of transition discussings with a friend who’s a nurse transitioning #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:44:42 +0100)
@Fuzzybec @BillWongOT Agree with this. I’ve heard mentors saying how much nicer/safer it is to work with humble NQOTs rather than cocky ones #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:44:44 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @kirstyes : @clissa89 @otsophie I agree that is a challenging one. I say don’t do too much protecting from reality on placements. #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:44:46 +0100)

@Richardsblister @Symbolic_Life perfect, its where i get asked the most and i find it really useful for me to answer, refreshes my knowledge #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:45:25 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yes! I always share that if I meet prospective OT students (or current students if I ever am a clinical instructor) #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:45:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @Flawson12 some people only talk about the positive aspects of the transition, but I’ve found honesty more rewarding #OTalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:45:44 +0100)

@BillWongOT @Fuzzybec If I were a clinical instructor, I love OT’s who have quiet confidence but are also humble. #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:47:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @r_spells I hear ya. For me, I need these kind of feedback constantly (and I usually get that cuz I disclosed my AS early) #otalk (Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:47:52 +0100)
