Upon graduation, I had applied to several different companies including the company I did my practicum through, MModal. I was contacted by MModal right away and hired on the spot!! I didn’t even have an interview, go figure!
As for the working field, I truly love it!! It’s been the best move in terms of a career change. The biggest motivation for me has been able to work from home, choose my own hours, and work in the medical field….finally!!! There’s not a transcription that goes by where I don’t feel proud and fortunate to be a part of the patient’s medical journey. As an MT, you definitely are working on your own, responsible for doing your own research and finding the answers, but there is always either my manager or assistant manager available for either a quick phone call or email should I need some extra guidance or help. My contract is based on part time, which right now is definitely full time for me during my learning curve. There has been no pressure in terms of not meeting the contract minutes. Instead it’s a “don’t worry about making your minutes, that will come in time, we would rather see accurate reports” mentality. This alone has been a huge plus for me being a recent graduate, but I know that it’s only a matter of time before it all becomes second nature and production will sky rocket! I have a little picture on my desk that says “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF,” and I look at it every day.
So, if you are a current student or potential CanScribe student, you will not find another school like CanScribe that will support, guide and train you throughout the entire journey. I will forever be grateful to CanScribe for helping me get to where I am today. I honestly couldn’t have done it without CanScribe and don’t think there is any other school that shows the same amount of dedication to their students such as CanScribe. It truly is a school that stands out from the rest. And it’s very true about companies preferring CanScribe graduates because all the companies I applied to, and I mean ALL, want a CanScribe graduate!! So, to all those future CanScribe students who work hard and diligently, you’ll have no problem finding your perfect fit!
