Who do I have to report to at the end of the day while working as a paramedic?
I am a teenager currently in high school. I am starting to look into career choices for my future. I have always had an interest for #medicine and being a #paramedic. I want to learn more about this #career-path so I can start volunteering and getting internships to build experience.
1. Reach out to people you know that are in the healthcare field now and see if they can connect you to someone they may know locally. I'm sure your local EMTs would be willing to sit and share their experiences with you if they know its a career you are looking to get into.
2. Also check on LinkedIn by careers. There are likely many paramedics listed you can view their career profiles and see places they have worked. LinkedIn should also have supporting organizations listed for those careers as well.
3. Seek out professional mentorship programs that may cater to high school/college students that will allow you to go ahead and get the volunteer experience.
I think you starting here is a great example of your initiative and willingness to learn, so keep that up!! Keep asking questions and you will have more opportunities come your way!!
