I truly respect and admire the dedication and compassion required to be a Mortician/Undertaker/Funeral-Director, as my research into funeral service has revealed. To be forthright, I was hoping to conduct a brief interview consisting of just 8 questions for a project assignment by my teacher at LoneStar College. The funeral service profession has always intrigued me, and I wanted to explore whether it might be a path I could pursue. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find someone to interview considering how busy their schedule in this industry is. It would be awesome if my questions could be answered here. I have posted the questions below.

1. What do you do most of the time at work 2.What are the things you enjoy most about your job? What's most rewarding? 3.What are the things you enjoy the least about your job? 4. For most people in this job, what are the greatest struggles? Sacrifices? Adversities? 5. What are the job opportunities going to be like in your field in the near future? 6. What special personality traits does someone really need if they want a job like yours? 7. What are some things I should be doing in college to prepare for this career? (What skills should I be developing?) 8. What is one thing that you wish you would have known about this career before you entered it?

Where should I go to be a Mortician?

I've been researching about mortuary sciences and was wondering where the best places to get a job to be one, and where to go to school is. Does it ever have a lasting emotional impact on you? I've always been interested in bodies though that does sound strange. #mortician #mortuary-science #medicine #science #biology #mortuary #funeral #healthcare #medical

Information about the Funeral Home business?

I plan on attending mortuary school after I graduate this year but I'm confused about all the career branches associated with the Funeral Home business. What I personally want to someday do is work in the funeral home, assist in picking up bodies, transporting to the crematory, embalming/makeup but I'm not too sure about talking with families about their plan for funerals and dealing with sadness and guilt, although I'm open to it. What exactly are the steps to get started? What is my major called? and how long would schooling take? #forensics #mortuaryScience #mortician #funeral #FuneralHome #embalming #forensic-pathology
