Thank you for the skinny.
Everything makes sense what you wrote.
It is possible that an employer would take an EMT-b and train them and have them observe and slowly be delegated interventions.
A private I interviewed at asked that same question, would you want a family member yadda yadda.......
I would not another human being, a starnger cared for by someone not qualified.
The point is that an inexperienced person can be worked in during field training under a seasoned pro. I would not mind 'my family' being treated by someone working under a veteran, that happens all the time in hospitals.
medical students, interns, residents, etc.....
But anyway, thank you for the info, it seems as if the contractor jobs are not as open as years ago. I am just curious if having foreigners from the phillipines violates some secuirty clearance...
Does anyone know of a contractor who hires EMT-B's with certificates but no experience?
Probably not but I am just asking.
Thank you in advance.
Why not see your local, friendly Army recruiter?
Do what I did ... stomp into his office with your chest puffed out, look him in the eye, and yell "Sergeant, I want to jump out of airplanes and shoot people in the face, and I'd like to start tomorrow! Let's get to it!"
He will have something for yo' azz. Fo shizzle.
I actually was going to join the Army Reserve in 2008, (they raised the maximumn age to 41 ), when I learned I had a hernia.
By the time it was considered repaired, I was 42, and too old.
As far as the contractors go. It is supply and demand.
Any job anywhere, if they have trouble finding people, they offer "training", if there are enough experienced applicants available, then they require experience.
It is what it is. I just made this post to guage the market.
As I wrote before, I met someone a few years back who with no security/muilitary/LEO experience went to the middle east and was trained to be a 'security consultant', her job was to formulate security plans for private companies setting up shop in the area. Some company trained her to do that.
Blackwater, now Xe, requires eight years in a military medic position (ideally the 18Whatever designator given to Special Forces Medics) at the sergeant level to get the choice jobs.
No worries...the jobs are there, just difficult. In regards to that security consultant...you get what you pay for and her obtaining that is highly unusual especially in the security field. I would never trust a company which would hire someone with no experience to do security planning in that region especially.
emt seeking first job,
Your approach to life seems a bit off. If you're desperate for an EMT-Basic job then you'll need to make significant sacrifices. There are many jobs available, but they surely won't be glamorous.
When I wanted to become an EMT I went to college, took the test, and became an EMT-Basic. When I wanted a job I called everyone around and ended up driving an hour and a half each way to make peanuts.
When I decided that EMS wasn't my calling the field I was looking in required a college degree and additional schooling. After spending thousands on college I spent another year not making a penny while I worked four days a week from 7:00 - 5:00 PM as an apprentice. The worst part was that I had to pay them $5,000 for the experience.
When I went to look for a job I couldn't find any, so I left my friends and family and moved to a small hick town and spent a year hating most everything about my life.
Then, after three college degrees and two years of experience I found that many doors opened for me and I landed a great job.
The truth is that many others have gone through the same type of experiences to get where they are today.
