Preech it brother, Preech. It seems like nobody gives a darn anymore. It pays to do research on these things before you go into them. I'm not even going to get into my situation because its another lost cause with a very dismal ending. All of the acrediting agencies and schools talk about ethics. Huh, if any of these people had ethics they wouldn't let all of these schools pump out billions of graduates each year. I am so sick and tired of hearing that their are "to many applicants for the same job". Someone really oughta do something about this. Good luck with our new president because I really doubt he gives a rats you know what.

I was out of xray field for 10 years. I got back in so it can be done. You must convince your interviewer that you still have it. I had a 2 year degree which is now, once again, becoming required in most states. Another option is to join your state's local RT meetings. It is not always what you know but who you know. If you can take a short course for a Med Asst or even an EKG tech or a CPR class, do it! Anything that you can add to your skills will help. Perhaps just volunteering in a hospital or accepting any position there and meeting staff people would help. It is best to talk to people face to face. Resumes can be so mis-leading. Talk about your passion about returning to your field. Last, but not least, Pray about it!
