- Jan 10, '12 by PneumothoraxIf u know the manager or someone who does have them talk u up. Otherwise apply apply apply good luck!
- Jan 10, '12 by srobb11I applied online and was lucky enough to get a call back and wooed them with my charm at the interview...lol. But seriously, our ER loves to hire techs with an EMT background, so I would think you wouldn't have much trouble. Good luck!
- another question. how do you keep your application from going into the blackhole or trash after you submitted it?
is there any magic phrase or word?
- Jan 19, '12 by Pneumothoraxnot really. remember that they usually post the jobs internally before they post to the public. i think it really has to do with the alignment with the stars and planets.
it took me 2 solid years of applying before i got hired. =/ hang in there. you'll get it if u persist.
- are you located on the east or west coast? near a metro area?
- Jan 19, '12 by northernguyIf you are an EMT Basic, it probably would help to have some phlebotomy and EKG training, since both seem to be pretty much universal roles for ER techs. Also wouldnt hurt to be a CNA.
- Well i do have my EKG Training and ACLS, but i still need my phlebotomy local classes fill up fast here.. i might look at a CNA Cert, how long is the training?
- Jan 20, '12 by PneumothoraxQuote from MusicEMTIn the midwest hahah. Im in central IL, but the hospital I work at is the only Level 1 trauma center in the area. So its like "big city"' competative if that makes sense.are you located on the east or west coast? near a metro area?
- Jan 20, '12 by Pneumothoraxto be quite honest they probably will train u on the job. i had phleb/ekg cert before i started and they still put me through their own class.
