I am graduating from the program on April 28th. Does anyone know if any agencies will conduct interviews before you graduate as a paramedic under contingency or something? Can I start applying for jobs now or should I wait until I become certified first? Thanks!

wait until you have your paramedic card, or at least your paramedic number. this way your employer can verify that you are, indeed, a certified paramedic.

Depend on where you're going to school. In Washington state, several agencies interviewed students in my paramedic program prior to graduation.

In most cases, you should probably just wait until you've completed the class and National Registry.

I applied with four companies prior to graduation and was offered jobs pending registry results.

If you're in a small area or just an area who is badly in need of medics then you may have positive results.

If you work in a large area that is not hurting for medics you will more than likely get "come back once you have all your certs done"
