    freshman year is over i'm looking for summer jobs to get some cash.

    on these boards i've read of people being patient transporters in hospitals, pharmacy clerks, and other various things in the med field. i was wondering how you guys go about finding these jobs. the hospitals in my area (chicago) tend only to post advanced job listings online (i.e. specialists, rns, doctors, etc.). how do i go about finding the grunt low end jobs available to students whether it be in a hospital, clinic, research lab.

    trying to get a position through relatives or other family connections will not really work for me since all my relatives are across an ocean.

    i am more than willing to do whatever job i get be it in a store or wherever else. i just want to exhaust the available resources out there and find a way to get some of the jobs that might be hidden.

    Try looking at nursing homes also. They are less likely to require a certificate course to qualify for employment. Preferably, you'd want something where you interact with the residents so you are getting a taste of clinical exposure. Rather than listing employment opportunities in the local paper, they may only post them on-line on their corporate website.

    Go to the Human Resources department/office of the facilities (hospitals, nursing homes, etc) where you think you'd like to work (based on commuting time, etc). Ask for an application. There may also be a bulletin board with job postings.
