~Work It!~

~Links, Updates, & Reminders~



Are you looking for a J.O.B.?

Its amazing how many people write to me telling me how they can't find work.

BUT it's even more amazing to me when I ask them what they've done to get a position and the responses I often get are:

"Well, I sent them a resume and they never called.."


Are you kidding me???

Listen, we all know the state of the economy and how "BAD" things are in the work-world right now.

BUT I also know that an education in surgical technology CAN get your foot in the door only IF you get your foot out of the house and work it.

Now, here's a quick outline on how to "work it!"

Get your basics together and get out there, pounding the pavement, knocking on doors, and following up.

Start with the following 3 basics:

~Professional attire

~A list of references

~A Professional resume

Your resume is like a detailed business card.

If it is not put together properly, it will only reflect on you.

Resumes are not that hard to write but it seems to be one of the biggest stumbling blocks for job-seekers.

Now I'm not bragging but my resume is AWESOME!


Well, I've been writing resumes for YEARS and I've also taught resume writing and career readiness specifically to surgical techs.

AND because I used my surgical tech background to WORK IT and create a dynamite resume that gets noticed!

Really, being a surgical tech has helped get my foot into many opportunities with lines of people trying to get into the same opportunity.

BUT, once again, I had to do some leg-work and pound the pavement at times.

I will tell you that it all starts with a great resume.

If you don't know how to write one, today is your lucky day.

Not only does the Surgical Tech Success Handbook give you a SOLID format to build an award winning resume, but recently I ran across a little piece of software that will practically write your resume for you.

You can find all of the f'r'e'e' details here:

Listen, if you are one of those people who is waiting for a medical facility or doctors office to come knocking on your door, you might as well just turn the T.V. back on and watch another episode of Judge Joe.

Trust me, they aren't going to come knocking on your door until you've knocked on theirs a few times.

I hope this newsletter will inspire at least one person to get off the couch and let them know you are available for work.

There are plenty of opportunities for surgical techs in the surgical tech world.

But you gotta work it my friend!

Check out the f'r'e'e info here:

Let me know if you've been moved to get up and get going....

AND please don't take my sarcasm personally!

I'm on your side and I'm here to try to help YOU! :)

Stay positive, ask questions, study hard, keep learning, and pray. That's the solid foundation to build from and work your way into becoming the best you can be.

Until Next Time~

Your friend,

Robert Prince, CST
