I got tired of waiting for the county of my choice to call me, so I went to another county EMS with my resume and application. The person who hires and trains interviewed me on the spot and then asked me to go take a drug test. I said, "well, usually employers don't ask you to drug test unless they're going to hire you." She replied, "that's true."
I really need to get working. I've been continuing to study my text books and read stuff on-line so that I don't forget everything, but I really need to get into the field and work to gain the real skills it takes to be an EMT.
I'm really hoping this job works out and sometime in the next couple weeks I'm working on a truck.
