    Default EMT-Basic Jobs in Chicago

    I tried to look around the web and in a few forums for answers but came up with nothing so i figured i'd post a question here where maybe somebody would see it.

    I plan on get certified as a EMT-B over the summer. My question is how is the job market out there for EMT-B's in Chicago? I know you could get hired working for a private ambulance company, which is pretty much what I was looking for, but are these companies hiring? I have a clean driving record so maybe that would help with a job?

    I'm on a leave from mine right now while I'm in the fire academy but in the 5 years that I worked there they were always hiring. I'm pretty sure all the services in Chicago are the same way. Try looking on craigslist.

    Age? May be a factor in getting hired too. If your over 21 you should be fine.
