Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming echo technician interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

Get plenty of sleep. Dress conservative. Be chereful and energetic. Visit the company's web site so you can ask them informed questions.
Rarely do you get asked a technical question.
Usually it's describe your work day, how do you prioritize, what text books you own, How did you learn echo, what are your accomplishments. And the cliche, what are your strengths and weaknesses.

I would be happy to see what other people think.

I'm a recent echo tech graduate, I'm a littlr bit worried, beacause most places are asking for the ardms, and I dont even qualify to take yet. Is it easy to get a job?

mike i will be honest with u it is extremely difficult to get a echo tech job.i graduated from a 2 year unaccreditted program with a 3.7 average in jan 2007 despite sending what i think is an impressive resume out i have only been able to procure a per diem echo tech job 2 hours away from my home and maybe work 3 days a month if im lucky it took 8 months just to find that the ardms is a big deal in the field right now new grads graduating who dont qualify to sit for ardms are at a great disadvantage your best hope may be to get with a mobile company this way u can get the experience to sit for the registry
dont give up i have not best of luck to you

Hi, I am a RCS and also am a RMA. I am currently seeking a Echo Tech job in the NJ NYC area, but am finding it very hard due to most employers wanting years and years of experience. I am currently working doing Echo/MA work and have a year of experience.
