Tinel's and signs ? - JC

Posted: Apr 12, 2012

Signs Job Outsourced
Aug 11, 2013

I have read the conversations here with such deep compassion for the fear and hopelessness most are experiencing in this transition from proud profession to extinction.  From my cocoon of full benefit hospital system position, I still deeply empathized with my fellow MTs in distress.  I have the sense that I will soon join your ranks and would like to ask what are the signs that your hospital/service is preparing to "save money" by throwing their dedicated employees into the giant cess ...

Signs Your Job Interview Is Tanking:
Aug 14, 2013

These all happened to me: Your interview keeps getting rescheduled, and rescheduled. The interviewer walks out into the lobby to greet you, and appears disappointed/less-than-enthused. Your interview is conducted not just by one or two people, but by an intimidating group of 4 or 5 glowering, power-suit-clad men & women, in a huge board room.  Donald Trump begins to come to mind.  ("You're NOT hired!") Worse, your interview is conducted in a cubbyhole under t ...
