Hello Everyone-

As you guys might have read, I am in the process of leaving my QA job and find a job in the health care field where I can accumulate my hrs and gain further med experience.

The problem is that I cant find jobs in health care that I could apply for. I have my EMT-1 and CNA so the ideal job would be doing something in a hospital ER or in an urgent care; even working at a doctors office would be great.

What route should I take in terms of looking for a job as such? I have visited the hospitals websites, newspapers and nothing. I was thinking of sending my resume and a cover letter with my intentions to a few urgent care centers or doctor's offices and see what happens there. Most Doctors want MAs, but I am sure with my EMT-1 and CNA I can function as one and am always willing to learn or get trained on new things.

As I said, I dont know what approach to take to find a job doing what I mentioned above. I live in Central California (San Joaquin Valley), I thought I would note this for you guys.

Thanks,

Eduardo
