Try posting your resume
I was contacted through this site.  I too like OP reports.  I was contacted by a small company to transcribe for a surgery center.  Mon thru Fri, no weekends, same account every day.  It was a dream come true!! 
Posting Resume
For people who have posted their resumes, what was your experience and how was the response. Thanks.
Resume posting
I placed a resume and heard from quite a few people, but their responses came very quickly after posting. 
Resume posting

P.S. The companies that respond to your resume are usually ones that do not post ads in MT Jobs. I say go for it!! What do you have to lose!

Forum for posting my resume?
On MT Stars where I can post my resume.  If anyone has that link or can tell me what forum that would be, could you please post it again?  Thanks!
Posting my resume on job board


Has anybody gotten hired from a contact directly from posting your resume .. sm
Just wondering if posting my resume on here is a wise idea and what kind of success other MTs have experienced with posting theirs on these types of sites, versus sending your resume to a company in response to their ad.
Try posting your resume on Career Builders. You'll
space, accounting, all kinda stuff.  Even if you specify what type of work and where you want it, especially with the locality option, you get all kinds of goofy stuff, but some are pertinent.  I got so many I had to unsubcribe. 
How long does it take TransHealth to get back to someone when you send a resume? I sent a resume
Has anyone sent resume to company, which did not
I have gotten a reponse from every company I have sent a resume to
I'm just trying to decide which one will work best for me. My current company has been low on work all month, so I am looking elsewhere.
I sent a resume too and was curious what the company was - NM
Has anyone heard from this company that submitted a resume?
Quest. about testing vs. sending resume to company...
As we know, most companies have you test for them, usually through mttest.com.  Some places allow you to submit your resume first, which is often followed by the invitation/direction to take their test.  My question is, do most companies just recieve your resume and automatically have you test, or do they actually look at the resume first to see if your initial qualifications are adequate?  I've tested at a few places and didn't qualify.  I'd love to know that they actually checked out my experience first and that is why they're having me test instead of me spending all that time when they may just be able to tell me I'm not qualified just from the resume.  Do you know which is the case?
Whatever that company is, they absolutely do not have access to our resume bank.
No but I sent them a resume - sm
They never responded to it.  I have a ton of experience, too.  Doesn't bode well for them to me.
sent resume
I sent a resume to MDtalknet and am waiting for a response, I even live in the same town, not that that really makes a difference.
Sent my resume in...sm

2 weeks ago and have not received an e-mail regarding testing.  I have 25+ years of experience, mainly acute care, 6 in radiology.  Wonder if they wanted more radiology experience. 

Are you sure they got your resume? I know that they are
hiring for ortho right now. I have been there 3 years and the account I am on is expanding and I know of at least two new accounts.

If you did not hear, I would either call or re-email.
Ok, thanks, I see it now.  Thank you!
Yes, I sent a resume - sm
I think I asked for more money than they pay because they thanked me for the resume and said maybe sometime in the future they would keep me in mind.  In other words, never.
Go Gal!  You reflect the sentiments of those of us who would not dare, but love to include your comments on our resume's.  Don't we all just love doing the header research for free!  Sigh, Is there light at the end of the tunnel?  God Love Ya!
I sent a resume
I sent a resume thru MTStars about 1-1/2 weeks ago, have 25 years experience doing all reports and have not heard a word from them.
Put your resume up
Put your resume up and say you are looking for minimal part time work. Good luck!
I just leave it as is pasted in. susan
Thanks, I sent the resume but have not sm
heard anything yet. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I'd get my resume in
to the small hospital quickly before somebody else does. I wouldn't say anything to your current hospital and if you have to give them a decision, say you will take the radiology job. Could be weeks or months before that other hospital has an opening.

If the outsourcing goes badly, radiology won't change over for a long time (hope, hope).

Radiology is all about anatomy and contrast. The bet book IMO is HPI's Radiology Imaging Words and Phrases, but you'll also use a lot of your Stedman's books like ortho, neuro, GI, Ob-Gyn, cardio, and even lab books.
I sent in a resume,

Ok, I sent in my resume
And already heard back from a recruiter! I am excited now! So, they only hire for ICs I'm taking it. That means I am responsible for paying my own taxes, correct?
Just a couple of questions about your resume. Do you put on it how much you are getting paid at your current job or at your past jobs? Do you put the current volume of work you are doing at your primary job? I have had some experience with hiring for a small company in the past and if I see someone put what rates they were getting paid at other companies I generally would discard the resume because it feels like a challenge to match or exceed those rates. If I saw that someone was a high producer but looking for a second job I would doubt that they would have much time for the second job and discard the resume.

Other flags to me were changing jobs often, big gaps in employment, or lack of specific experience for the specific position.

If none of those apply to you, I'd just agree with the other posters that business is just generally slow right now and it's not personal.
Same here. I sent them resume. They were
Thanks..I just sent them my resume...sm
Do you happen to know why they have a banner on the career page that says Military Spouses Welcome? I was just wondering.
I sent them my resume
I sent them my resume and have yet to hear back. Advanced sounds like a great company to work for. It's just I've applied several times in the past and I never do hear anything.
Had and still having the same problem since beginning of 2008 when I, too, sent out resumes. Am STILL having effects of that, had changed from one email acct to another in an effort to get away from it. Still get 150-200 emails a day and apparently am on every nigerian computer in existence. Unbelievable. Also, every school that teaches transcription (after 30+ years! of transcription) and from there it has gone everywhere. Cannot honestly say Opti-script did it, but I did apply with them. Some companies would not deal with me because they required SS # and I absolutely refuse to put some things on line, not credit card or banking (thank God) because last week I had total infiltration despite all my antivirus and spy bot and fire wall that has cost me $300 to have taken care of. Just sloppy for this to happen. Only med Transcriptionist have to be perfect, everything else is half-a$$ and seems to be acceptable. What a world.
If getting paid regularly for your hard work is important to you, find another company. nm
I've seen your resume...
Truth be told, most recruiters have probably worked with you in some form or fashion at these companies, and know your reputation. When your name comes up on the job board, they think "no way" unless they are being pushed hard to hire anyone and everyone.

Believe me, one thing that makes a recruiter cringe is someone who has had 20 jobs in 10 years, or even 10 jobs in 10 years. If you've only been able to last for a matter of months at a number of companies, any recruiter is going to assume that the problem is you, not the company you were with, and will think very hard before hiring you. Remember, transcription is a very small world, and it's one place where it's possible that everyone who matters knows your name.
I've seen your resume. sm
How could you possibly know who the person posting this original message is?
I posted mine in May of 2005 and am still getting calls, even got one today...
Sent a note, resume, etc.
Just waiting to hear something from them. I heard they are good, too.
I don't want to send them a resume either
At one time, some companies put out ads by recruiter and anonymous names just to see who would apply.  Those who applied and were working for this big company were immediately fired just for applying.  Watch your back!
Did not send resume, but.....sm
I did write a very polite email stating that I was not comfortable revealing my personal information to an unknown company. I included my basic credentials and asked if they wanted my resume to please email me regarding their company information.  I doubt if they'll bother, but I've made it a policy to never submit my confidential information to any company who is not willing to reveal their name.
a resume would still be more reliable
I actually submitted my resume - sm
And heard back within 10 minutes via telephone. With 1 little one not in school yet, flexibility is the most important thing to me right now. I think they sound great!
Redirect resume

Please redirect your resume directly to my attention at jwalsh@dsg-inc.net

I will be happy to review it.

Thank you!


you probably sent a resume about a year ago
and there were quite a few that were set aside - and now they are contacting you.
Thanks, i sent a resume 2 months ago, and nothing either
Did they ask you to send them your resume?
I took the test today with a 96%, and immediately was asked to e-mail my resume. 
Addition to resume

Hi Mari,

Well said!  I'm going to include your first paragraph on mine and see what they think!

Did you try putting your resume up?
I've gotten many offers just from having my resume up here.
Send the resume!
They are an honest company and have proven that time and time again. When something comes up that is a concern, they always fix it. They will not jerk you around and they certainly do not play games. They have recently grown quite rapidly and honestly I don't think they realized this was a great concern until now. They are focused on keeping both the client and the MTs happy, rare in this business. There are one or two MTs here that are out to destroy their reputation as a great company and I suppose these few will come back at my posting in their typical childish manner, but disregard them. Send the resume, you won't regret it.
Email resume
Where did you get the address? One of my resumes ended up in the recruiters SPAM!!! having been blocked by a pop-up prevention. I would call and let them know what is happening. Maybe another email address would work. Also you could try a fax.
