Do you work at American Red Cross? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

All I did was look up their website and e-mailed the HR person at the regional office in Cleveland,near me. I have had horrendously bad luck in finding a phlebotomist position and she sounded like she was actually willing to give me a chance-and then I found out that for some reason,the Cleveland base expects you to travel,by yourself,to the 19 counties they serve. I just can't figure that out. Don't these counties have their own blood drawers? How are you supposed to be at a blood drive early in the morning if you have to drive over several counties?
I would think all blood collection sites have approval unless you are talking about yourself. If you are certified then you shouldn't have any trouble getting in (famous last words).

I was highly qualified for a position I recently applied for and didn't hear anything from them. It was a Communications and PR specialist position. I have a BA and MA in communication/PR and worked in comm./pr for over 7 years at a similar national/regional non-profit. Never even received a rejection letter.

good luck. maybe they only hire from within
