Looking for a job and advice
Currently I have 2 active applications at home in Shreveport, LA and one out in Mesquite, TX. I have national and Louisiana certification as an EMT-B and should be starting paramedic classes in August if I don't get hired. I've been on a few ride outs with both medic and fire units trying to learn the ropes. Iv looked into volunteer work but I keep hearing that once you get in you never get out (plus I have to get paid somehow). I've been working in a teaching hospital for quite a while (OR and rehab) and have over 100 hours of college credit with >3.0 GPA. I know a lot of guys in the Bossier City dept but Bossier has a hiring freeze at the moment (supposed to be lifted because of understaffing and a new Chief). I'm willing to relocate but would prefer to stay in the south. Any advice would be very helpful.
