I am graduating in Spring of 07 with my cert in M.T. I am completed all classes and my 120 hr externship, just waiting on spring graduation <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I am having the HARDEST time finding someone who will even give me a chance. Most want anywhere from 2-15 years experience.<br><br>
Can you tell me how you broke into this career, or any pointers on finding work at home with this career.<br><br>
Much appreciated!!

Where did you get your training? Your right, most employers want around 2-3 years for an entry level MT position. However, if you graduate from an 'approved' school, these employers will waive this requirement, and you shouldn't have a problem finding work.<br><br>
I have a couple of friends who graduated from an MT course around the same time I did (one from her local college, the other from another online course). I had a couple of job offers within a week. However, my friend is STILL looking for work. I actually think she is ready to give up on it.<br><br>
Best of luck!

I graduated from a private college here in MI. It was a 1.5 year course..but it took me longer, I had two babies while in college so I skipped many semesters in between.<br><br>
Thanks for the help...I am still looking and sending resumes out. Will check out that website! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

LOL. I know how that goes. I started my course a day or two before my youngest was born. Not the brightest idea! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'm going to PM you. I have a site that lists just about every MT company out there (all alphabetical). There are literally tons of companies listed.<br><br>
Best of luck!!<br><br>
Edited to add.... The smilie for your Kyler fits my youngest perfectly! LOL. I hadn't seen that smilie before. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
