I am new to this discussion and would like to know if anybody out there has graduated from At-Home Professions. I graduated about one year ago and have not found a job yet. I look everyday on the internet and I do not have enough experience for those jobs. I have applied for several apprentice jobs, but these are not up and running yet. Does anyone have any advice? I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!

Ann

Hi Annie,

I am a new graduate (not At-Home Professions) and I am also looking for work. While I have just started, all that I can suggest is apply,apply,apply,apply. The only way to get hired by someone is to try. I know it is hard when the majority of places want experienced MTs, but you have to show them that you have the desire and drive to overcome your inexperience. One of my fellow graduates had offers coming out the wahzoo even though she had no experience--she just managed to sell herself right. One thing that she suggested was to post your resume on the various sites because she was under the impression that not many people did that and you may have a better chance of getting noticed. Anyway, I am trying not to get discouraged,yet! Good luck in your search.

Take care

Networking is a great way to get work. Join your local chapter of AAMT--there are service owners who are members of our chapter and people are more likely to give you a chance if they know you. Also, they may know of places where you can get a chance.

Try the temp agencies. You will have to test for them, so that will give you a good idea of your ability also. You could also parlay a temp position into something permanent.

Don't give up!

AnniePooh,

I am in the process of getting some IC work from a company who has a "Newbie" program that I think is in a kind of "beta testing" stage. The next time I speak to them I would be glad to ask if I may refer you to them. Good Luck and don't give up!

Carmen,
Hi! Nice to meet you. I did apply at Medquist, but they told me that they were not accepting any inexperienced transcriptionists right now. What a disappointment. Let me know if you come across anything.
