Hi Everyone. I'm having a really hard time finding an EMT job in Seattle. I didn't think it would be this hard, especially with my resume/experience. I've been working as an Emergency Room Tech for the last 8 years at The very busy University of Washington ER. This past Spring I took an advanced Wilderness EMT Course through Remote Medical International where I received my EMT-B, Wilderness EMT & MPIC certificates as well as passing the NREMT. For the last 3 months, I've applied & checked back regularly at AMR, TRIMED, RURAL METRO & FALCK but there doesn't seem to be any openings. When AMR was hiring they told me I needed my Washington State License from The DOH to get hired even though I have my NREMT, but you can't get that unless you're affiliated/sponsored/hired by an EMS Agency. It's quite a catch 22. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers & thanks in advance.
