I know there are issues out there with new grad techs being unable to find employment. So, I’m curious to know :
If anyone has tried to be a lab “instructor” at the school they graduated from in order to gain work experience?
Now, this is a direct contradiction to my belief that it is just wrong for a new grad to attempt to oversee a student, but I think desperate times call for desperate measures. After all, how often do you come across some crazy abnormality scanning another student. Which, of course, lends to the fact that there is no real experience there, but you will be logging hours of “work”.
One more question…
Years ago there was a school who operated on top of an outpatient clinic and the students would get hands-on experience by assisting the instructors who actually scanned the patients. Do these types of schools still exists?
Anyway, just thoughts I had to put out there. I just feel bad sometimes when people ask for advice on how to find a job and I have none to give.
