Certified Medical Assistant

I recently discovered Certified Surgical Technologist. It seems to be what I’m looking for in terms of a career (ability to work 3x12s, little patient interaction). I am used to standing on my feet all day so this I am not concerned about. If you are a CST what do you like about it? What don’t you like about it?

      Easy Interview

      Interview

      Was easy and straightforward. She was friendly too. I was relaxed and not under pressure. It lasted for about 30 minutes. I had the offer. The process took a week or so. It was fast and it depends on the need at that particular time.
