I'm curious to see if RT's are qualified for other positions such as x-ray tech or radiologists. The reason I ask this is if its difficult to find a job after graduating, could an RT find work as an x-ray tech or radiologists in the mean time with the certification they have as an RT?

Radiologists are Physicians. And to be a radiologic technologist you must complete their specific training.

I am having a problem with getting a job in radiation therapy. I graduated in 2011 and can't seem to get hired. I would like to know if there is another job that would take the RT degree?

It took me and a co-worker of mine 2 years to find our first position. Keep at it. Try to think of ways to be different and stand out. I had a problem with the online systems, so I would do that, but I'd also send a hard copy to the chief therapists at each site I applied to. I revised my resume to make is stand out as well. Good luck!
