SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. Sorry, I'm sure this is the wrong place to be posting so if a mod sees this he/she can move it. I'm a starting freshman this year at a nearby community college. I can't drive yet (although I will be able to in about a month), but I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on a starting (medical) job. Should I volunteer or work? Hospital or a private clinic? I'm not concerned about money but wouldn't mind making a bit -- the most important thing for me though is to gain experience out of the whole thing. What did you do as a first job when you first decided that you wanted to go into the medical field? Like I said I'll be getting my car in about a months time, so in the meantime I'm browsing around and getting an idea (although I must say it all seems very intimidating) of the opportunities out there, and will take action in about a months time. And if anyone knows of anything available in the Northern VA area (Annandale/Springfield, etc.) I'd appreciate it! (I searched on google as far as volunteering goes but didn't see anything) Thanks.
