So this last week….
Alright, so at the beginning of last week baby and I both were starting to get a little sick. Due to out symptoms I just passed it off as sinus stuff. Well, baby’s sickness turned into a cold with a mixture of teething. He has an ear infection and he has been getting HORRIBLE bloody noses. Took him to the doctor, got him some antibiotic….only to be faced with a new challenge…diarrhea. Stupid antibiotic.
My sickness has turned into bronchitis and I am miserable. Both baby and I have been sluggish the last week. On top of the fact that I have been trying to get into a new routine of work. So I’m up at 4:30 a.m.
Anyways. That’s that.
Hi there! I was looking through the MT tags and I'm quite interested in becoming a medical transcriptionist myself! The problem is, I don't know where to start. Do I start with school? Will I get a job easily/right away out of school? Do you have any advice for me? Thanks so much! :)
Hi! Why on anon??!
If you are interested in becoming a medical transcriptionist most companies require that you have taken a course through an accredited program. They want to know you know what you are doing…not just that you can type fast :) The program I did mine through was called CareerStep. I LOVED them. Hope on over to their site and read about them. Once I passed the final, they helped me form my resume’, and be on the hunt for my first job. It was so helpful. They are also partnered with over 200 transcription companies who hire their new graduates. (A lot of companies won’t hir newbies ;/ They typically require 1-2 years experience.
I got a job 2 months after I passed my final with the course, but I wasn’t looking very hard. I wanted to have some down time before I started. I know a lot of people in the course though that land their first job 1-2 weeks of graduation. Depends on how bad you want it :)
If you are serious about doing a transcription course, do it through CareerStep, and tell them I referred you! They are an AMAZING program, and most transcription companies speak very highly of them because there graduates do so well, even as newbies. Be warned though, it is TOUGH. You have to be dedicated.
Being a medical transcriptionist has afforded me the ability to stay home with my baby, but still be able to help my husband provide for our family and save. I love it! I’m so glad that I did it. I knew even before I became a mom that I didn’t want to have to send my baby to childcare. I didn’t want someone else to experience his milestones and not me.
Good luck to you! Please message me off anon so we can talk some more, or if you have more questions. I would I be happy to answer them!

Hahaha, sorry to cause you anxiety anon. If it makes you feel better, I didn’t spill it on the white sheet ;)
