Employers Need More Graduates!

Referral Blog2 Comments

Career Step works closely with hundreds of employers. Many of our best relationships are with medical transcription employers since we’ve been training medical transcriptionists the longest. In just the past year, we’ve worked with over 100 employers who’ve hired our MT graduates—and the need for new MTs isn’t slowing down. Our employer partners have told us that there aren’t enough new MTs to meet the demand for entry-level professionals and that demand isn’t showing any signs of slowing. The future of medical transcription is bright!

We need your help to meet this demand for more medical transcriptionists! Do you know anyone interested in a transcription career? Be sure to let them know that employers are looking for new MTs and point them to your referrer webpage for more information.

Help your friends get started toward a bright new career and help us train the quality professionals our employer partners need!

    I am half a module away from taking the midterm and am anxious to start looking for some prospective employers…What can I do to be proactive and maybe have something lined up for when I graduate?

    There are a couple of things to keep in mind at this point. When you graduate from the program, you will be given access to a variety of services, including:

    - An individual resume review.
    - A graduate consultation with an employment coordinator (via an online webinar).
    - Access to Placement Direct—our website to help you have a more efficient job search which includes tutorials on resumes, interviewing technique, pre-employment testing, etc., tracking application forms, and our employer directory with over 100 companies listed that have hired Career Step grads in the past—the majority of which will hire U.S. graduates!
    - Job notices and referrals based on employment preferences.

    You have access to all of these services for one year after your date of graduation. All of these services are designed to help you have a more effective job search! However, it is important to remember that a job search is still hard work! Often times a job search can be a full-time job in and of itself. While we do all that we can to help our graduates secure employment, the majority of your job search is up to you! In order to have an ‘easier’ job search, I would encourage the following:

    1. Most importantly, work your hardest in the program! Take advantage of all of your resources and really focus on your coursework. The more you focus on your coursework, the easier your transition into the industry will be. In addition, working your hardest in the course now will allow you to perform to the best of your ability on the final exam. The higher your scores on the final exam, the more competitive of an applicant you are!
    2. As mentioned, be prepared to work! A job search takes a lot of time and effort, and graduates who are really invested in this search generally enjoy success at a faster rate. Be prepared to apply with a large number of companies, follow up on your applicants, and test with potential employers.
    3. Be flexible in the kind of employment options available. The more types of positions you are open to, the greater your chances of finding a position that works for you!

    We wish you the best of luck in completing your program, and look forward to working with you as a graduate!
