Background on myself...
In May, I will have 5 years as a medic in a 15,000 call/year service. I also work for a Peds CC team. I am an adjunct at the local community college EMS program, PALS instructor, ITLS instructor, FPC, CNPT and very recently completed my bachelors with a paramedic major. I have a very good relationship with several of the crew members for the services I have applied for and dont feel that I interview too poorly. So far I have had three in-person interviews and two phone interviews that didnt result in a face-face. One service said I needed more critical care experience and possibly my FPC. Another service said there was really nothing they could think of that I could improve on. The flight crew members that I teach with following the rejections said they were asked about me, gave good references but didnt hear anything afterward. I realize this is a competitive field and it just takes time. Nonetheless, the situation is frustrating.
For those who have obtained a position, how many times before your first job and where in your career were you?
Also, if ya'll have any other ideas to improve my resume, please let me know. I am out of ideas.
Thanks and be safe
