Help Us Fill Medical Transcription Hiring Needs

Referral Blog4 Comments

work at home

The medical transcription industry is HIRING! In some cases, we’re almost begging our graduates to apply because employers are begging us for more graduates to fill their positions. Here’s how the job market looks…

  • There are not enough MTs to fill positions in the U.S. or Canada.
  • Career Step consistently works with over 100 hiring MT employers.
  • 14 different U.S. companies have asked for more graduates in just the last month!
  • Every Canadian MT graduate since 2012 has an MT job!

To give you an even clearer picture—one of our U.S. High Honors graduate has received 32 emails about hiring companies since graduation. That’s roughly an email a week prompting her to apply!

We need your help spreading the word about these opportunities to your friends and family who may be looking for a career change. Medical transcription is a great option for anyone looking for an at-home career, and with all this demand, it’s a great time to be looking for that first MT job.

This is also a great opportunity to increase your referrals in Canada because the need is particularly intense there (check out our post on increasing your Canadian referrals for ideas).

    I was going to career step,  but had some things come up, which made it difficult to continue and or make payments.  So I don’t believe I qualify.  But if there is anything that may be available to help me get started on it again so that I can finish I would love to hear about it.  Thank you. Leah

    I am a Regsitered Nurse looking to work from home.  I was wondering what jobs you have that I could take without doing the schooling.

    Thanks so much

    Will I get assistance finding a job? Is it hard to obtain a job once finished?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Medical transcription jobs require MT specific training. Many of our students are nurses, and we hear from all of them that they were surprised how much they needed to learn before they could do the work. However, with your nursing background you may be able to progress through the training a little quicker. If you’d like more information on our training, please contact an Academic Advisor at 1-800-411-7073.

    Best wishes!

    Hi Carol,

    Yes, you will have assistance in finding a job. The Career Step course includes graduate assistance—you’ll have access to our experienced Graduate Advisors who can help you polish up your resume, answer questions about the job search, and provide interview tips and advice. You’ll also receive job opening notification emails when our partners tell us that they’re looking for applicants and you’ll have access to our Placement Direct tool, which provides a list of all of our employer partners with information on who’s hiring and whether they have any special processes for Career Step graduates.

    At the moment, most of our graduates who really apply themselves in the job search are hired within a few weeks.

    Best wishes!
