Hi there - NYC
Posted 19 November 2012 - 04:54 AM
I wanted to say hi - I'm in NYC, thinking of getting my EMT-B. Seduced by some of the programs for free/low-cost options for women getting into it, worried about some of what I am hearing re: difficulty for getting a first job, especially right out of school - and especially as someone who doesn't have a car (does have a license) and would have a hard time getting somewhere far away. Debating something like doing EMT + also going for ambulance driving...boost that resume time.
Anyways, this board is clearly an amazing resource, and I imagine I'll continue to lurk as I figure it out.

I'm in Brooklyn, work in Manhattan. I'd love to hear your ideas. It seems like there is this cycle of "well, volunteer services suck for best practices, but transport means no skill use, but good luck getting a good job without experience, and to get experience you need to do a volunteer run or a transport..." If you knew of good volunteer options I would love to hear them. I was considering the Park Slope one because of train proximity but am open to elsewhere.
You can email me at email@example.com or if you prefer board messages I'll figure that out.

Welcome to the City, "Lurk" all you want, there is a lot to be learned from here. Some great posters lurk here.

If they're lurking, they're not posting, and if they're posting, they're not lurking. I admit to doing some of both.
