I'm planning to become a medical lab technologist and I was wondering if it is difficult for new graduates to get jobs. Are there still jobs in the GTA in this field. I completed the lab technician program at Centennial this year and I'm finding it difficult to get a job with only my placement experience (6 weeks). Is the job outlook better for technologists or is it similar to technicians.

Not sure about Canada, but in the US, states without licensure have better job prospects for MLT(although they prefer ASCP certified MTs), while states with licensure have better job prospects for MT.

I don't think that the opportunities would vary much from place to place for medical lab technologists. You should look for some openings in the nearby hospitals as they are the major employer of medical laboratory workers. You can also find some places in medical and diagnostic laboratories, offices of physicians, and all other ambulatory health care services.
