Helpful Hints - SurgTechSuccess
October 11, 2005
Today I'd like to tell you a little about finding employment as a Surgical Tech and then cover a few "Helpful Hints" for students that a surgical tech instructor sent to me the other day.
With the internet, finding Surgical Tech Jobs couldn't be easier IF you know how to search.
When using on-oline job search engines like the top 3 I posted on the Employment Tools link at
you should be able to find plenty of hospitals, facilities, and other employers looking for Surgical Techs.
One of the key things to think about when searching is to use a variation of the keyword "surgical tech"
Another way to find employment as a surgical tech is through networking.
Networking simply means to talk to people you meet in and around surgery.
It's never too early to start thinking about where you want to work and start making plans to work there.
It's that simple.
ALSO, just read what a current student recently had to say about the information he received in the Surgical Tech Success Handbook package:
MR.PRINCE, I USED YOUR TECHNIQUE FOR EMPLOYMENT and I JUST GOT A PART TIME JOB IN A CENTRAL SUPPLY. THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO COULD USE YOUR GUIDE. LIFE IS GOOD. THANK YOU! CHRIS F, surgical tech student
How about that..??.. A current surgical tech student student who got a part time job working in a Central Supply dept. If you ask me, that's an excellent job to have while in surgical tech school.
By using the right approach, knowing how to search, and talknig to the right people when looking for employment as a surgical tech, surgical tech student, or even potential surgical tech student, you will increase your chances of working exactly where you would like to work.
There is a ton of Employment information and resources in the Surgical Tech Success Handbook and FRE'E bonus material:
I know from years of experience what it's like going through the entire employment process as a surgical tech and I know for a fact there is a specific technique to finding the right job.
Talk to your instructors and other surgical techs you'll be meeting. This will definitely start your networking process.
AND, if you haven't already picked up your copy of the Surgical Tech Success Handbook with the fre'e bonus material, go here and check it out:
