I like knowing that I'm doing something important. Important in keeping the public safe. that dedication and honesty plays a big part.
I had lots of opportunities to learn from and help me get where I am today. and yes, sometimes i think the most challenging part, is having to deal with to many cheifs in management.
what keeps me here is i like what i'm doing in helping the public. i know i'm doing something important. I know i'm doing a great job. I'm not afraid to admit when I have madea mistake.

Oh..I didn't answer your question. Do I like my job? It's great because like other jobs in the medical field, it has a high level of importance. If I don't maintain accuracy, it may cause a problem in a patient's blood results resulting in misdiagnosis. My job in particular, doesn't involve patient interaction so the only drawback is that the only people I'm dealing with with are my co-workers and specimens alllllllllllll dayyyyyyyyyyy longgggggggggggggggggg. I don't recommend it if you need on going patient interaction. If you're an introvert, and don't like dealing with the public, this is the ideal job for you.

How hard is it to find a job as a lab assistant? Are there certain qualifications that hospitals/labs look for? Currently I'm pursing a bachelors degree in med. tech. and think it would be great work experience.

Hi CNH, I've just secured a post as a medical lab assistant in the pathology department at a hospital in the uk and I have just left the equivalent of your high school. The fact that you are currently studying for a med. tech. degree will probably give you more than enough experience.
