Hello Tiarra, i had the same problem that you did. this is what i did, find out who the hiring manager for the lab is and then what you do is walk in and let the receptionist know that you are there for an appointment. They will never know. when you have a chance to sit down with the manager, that is your opportunity to let them see who you are and how hard you are willling to learn and first impressions are the best. i had this problem for a year after i graduated and that is what i had to do. Personality is the biggest thing to getting anywhere. Believe me it works, if you want something you can get it. I have been in the same job for the last 13 years.good luck, kenlin

Hello Nikki, There is good money to be made, especially if you are working with the jails or with a temporary agency. On call is the best, except the only problem is that you cannot have a life. This information is only based from my experience and what i prefer doing. Good Luck.

OBJECTIVE: My goal is to get back to doing phlebotomy and pursue the medical field.

SUMMARY
As a musician I have had the opportunity to meet and deal with many
different people. When I entered the field of Phlebotomy I found that my
experience with people was a great asset. I was able to empathize with
them during their times of distress. The humor and compassion that I
brought to each situation eased the apprehension felt by many patients
when faced with a new procedure. I would like very much to return to this field.

2000-2001 Sales Associate, The Guitar Center, Inc.
I worked in the drum department, advising potential customers, helping them to choose the best instrument for them.

1999-Present Music Instructor, Burlington County College
I teach a Summer Arts Journey Series geared to teaching teenagers the ins and outs of the music field.
In the Fall I teach a weekly Percussion Course.

1992-1997 Phlebotomist, Corning
I worked at the Patient Service Center, drawing blood on house calls and nursing homes.

1992-1992 Phlebotomist, Lab Force
I worked here in a temporary position.

Phlebotomist, Rancocas Hospital
I worked in a part-time position.

I have the same problem I am very seriously considering starting a non-profit business to help place students who have completed their programs and are unable to get hired. This seems to be a problem not just for phlebotomist but in many other branches of the medical field as well. I will complete my coding program and most of the people I know who have taken that program have gone back to school for something else because they were unable to find employment due to lack of experience also. Anyone who would be interested in participating in such a program please feel free to email me. My email address is bvillain@ivytech.edu
Thanks and good luck to all of you who are seeking employment.

It is real employment but only now and then,here and there. If you are willing to drive a few hours,let it be known. Don't count on the events being close by. If it is very far they may put you up in a hotel. Their busy time for health fairs is in the fall. They pay well,$20 an hour,with mileage cover. Just make sure you keep track of your time sheet,don't let anyone fax it in for you,and make a copy of it if you mail it. Keep in contact with Michelle Alvis there,she is very nice and helpful. If you want more information,my e-mail address is in my profile. There is a reason why I am telling you about the time sheet.

my name is ms miller and i teach phlebotomy and it is very hard for students to come right out of school and right in to a well paying phlebotomy job, so i do tell them not to just student phlebotomy add on to your medical education so they can land a well paying job and not be on the bottom of the medical field.

It is such a tough job market. I can relate about how everyone asks for experiance, but yet how are you suppose to get experiance if you don't give that person a shot at it. It is very fustrating. I am going on my fourth month looking for a job. Someone is bound to have a heart...somewhere...

I have just finished a course in Phlebotomy in San Diego. The only thing that I have found is that I "might" be able to volunteer at the Red Cross. How can these schools get away with telling people the jobs are out there when they know that no one will hire if you don't have experience. Talk about frustrating!! If there is anyone in San Diego that knows of a place hiring at entry level, please let me know.

I am experiencing that same issue. I just graduated last month and a few places hire with no experience but that does not mean they will hire you. You can volunteer to get the experience that is what I just found out and am in the process of doing.

I just graduated too and I heard Sharp, UCSD, and Family Health hires entry level but I do not know. I am waiting for my test results to be mailed to me.
I do understand what you mean about paying all that money to learn how to do venipuncture go internship at facilities who would not even hire you but will let you internship there. I am going to go volunteer at the red cross to I heard you can do that while I was interning and I meet a guy who does intern for the red cross but you can only do it at the Naval hospital or Camp Pendleton that I know of but I found another agency that lets you volunteer so I AM GOING TO TRY THEM BOTH so that I can get at least 6 months of experience so I can go to the hospital but TRY SHARP. I heard it is like 15.00 an hr,

The best thing to do is to volunnteer a couple of hours a couple a day during the week and get this place to confirm you worked for them, take it from there. There are many places like private clinics, Private Dr. Office and even the hospital volunteeroffice can allow you to do this, good luck. Let me know how it goes.

I graduated almost a year ago with my Phlebotomy certification. I also have my CPR certification and still have not been able to find a job. I'm in Southern California and have applied everywhere. I am at the point now where I think it would probably be best to volunteer somewhere so that I can get experience and then maybe to able to get a job. Does anyone know somewhere in So. Cal. where you can volunteer?

One place that no body thinks about volunteering at is with any University that is doing genetics research. They have to collect healthy people as controls and this means getting a blood sample to look at their DNA. Usually Investigators are needing thousands of samples. And because Universities are associated with "teaching hospitals" they will use people who are learning. So, maybe try UC Irvine. Just a thought.

Lori in Dallas, Texas

I have also completed the phlebotomy course, clinicals and have passed my cerification, but I too can not find a job. They all require 1-3 years experience. I must be confused because I thought entry level ment starting out but they too require previous experience. I have also seen ads here in Dallas that say it must be paid experience. So even if you could find a place to volunteer it would not count. It is a circle, you can't get a job w/out experience, and you can't get the experience w/out a job. In a city the size of Dallas you would think there would be someplace willing to hire newly certified phlebomists. Does anyone have any suggestions other than going back to school and learning something else?

Don't Bother!!! Unless you are already in the medical field and need to complete a phlebotomy course to get more pay or advance, don't do it. there are no jobs out there for new phlebotomists!!! These schools are a sham. They bring you in, promise jobs they know aren't out there and then cut you loose. Read these comments. nobody can find jobs!! Don't waste your money!!!

But don't the phlebotomy schools place you in an internship so you can get the experience needed? Or are you saying that that doesn't even matter because there aren't jobs even for people with experiene?

It has been my experience that the externship does nothing but fill a requirement that the state has asked for. The jobs that i have applied for want paid experience and do not count the externship as experience. it is just an addition to school requirements. Good luck, but if i had to do it over again, i wouldn't!!!
