When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
you get a form to put in your name, email, and paste your resume. MTSpot sends it to the recipient
Wilma reincarnated. Cut and paste same response. Cut and paste. nm
How long does it take TransHealth to get back to someone when you send a resume? I sent a resume
Has anyone gotten a job from any company not posting regularly from their resume in the resume
Did anyone ever tell you why no cut/paste? I always want to know why. sm
But I'm not going to be able to continue working for them, since they just don't have enough work during the time I have available, so it won't be a problem. 
I am trying to paste...

My resume in the Transtech application form.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do that? 




Cut & Paste why?
I have been curious about this for a while.  Why do companies need us to cut and paste our resumes into an email rather than attaching them.  9 out of 10 companies on MTjobs request this and go so far as to say they will DELETE emails with attachments.  Anyone know or have a guess?
Info is obviously a cut and paste.
Anyone could do it. Why would OSi stoop so low?
going to cut and paste your post
because everything you have said is so very, very true.  I don't have 31 years of experience - but I do have 25 years of transcription/secretarial experience and 12 years of MT - so I have a little bit of an idea what I am doing - and you are so right - if you cannot at least bring in $100 a day - why bother?  I am at that point too.  I am doing SR for 4.5 cpl now - but have something else in the works - it is my very last straw.... so not giving up quite yet.  I am so very, very sorry for what you have gone through - know you are not alone - not sure what can be done - but you are not the only one in this boat!!
Copy and Paste....

I have a few of my own standards in MS Word that I will copy and paste into Meditech, but I find the tabs do not translate over to Meditech. Do you have this problem as well? It is aggravating because I have to fix these when I go back to the Meditech screen

I posted a cut and paste of what sm
they sent me and it clearly states that you are hired as an SC and then are offered SE status.  That's pretty clear.  My question is why would they hire you as SC status, tell you when to work and then offer you SE status?  Pretty fishy.  I understand you don't like the comment I made about being pimped out but I don't know what else to call it when folks accept this practice of working as an SC being told what and when, paying double taxes and putting up with this stuff.  your just handing your hard-earned money over!
I use Meditech and don't cut and paste
and it's fine for me.....we use Word inside Meditech so I have all my macros and stuff.
thanks for the copy and paste--sm
but latest and related are not the same thing. all I am seeing are posts that were placed after mine and nothing in relation to the original post questioning the company. sorry again.
Can't bring up the article - could you cut and paste - sm
it so that we could read it??
copy/paste is against the rules.. we were
from the onset to NEVER EVER copy and paste. If you are doing this you should stop it soon before they figure it out and you get in trouble.
If I had to copy & paste my IM to an email...

...because I needed a conversation documented, I would do it.  I would find a way.  Even if I had to get a disposable camera and take a couple of darn pictures of the computer with the IM on it.  LOL!  

By the way, what happens if you doin't respond to the IM?  Are you an employee with the co?  No co. would make me do IM, but that's me.  What is the co. so concerned about that they don't want something documented in email???

Should I attach or copy and paste
the questionnaire and resume into an email when sending them back to Webmedx? No preference was given.
could you quickly copy and paste your document into another? then
you could just keep adding on the lines in each document to your own master document for the day. Then you would have a line count for the day. I bet you could write a macro to do this.
Just paste it and let it go. They're looking for content, not format, when ....sm
...the resume is sent via a web contact form. If you are a good MT with good qualifications, they won't care how it's set up, but do make sure words are spelled correctly. That's a huge bugaboo when I read resumes.
Highlight all the text you want to paste and right click
your mouse.   You should get a list of options, one of which is copy.  Select copy.  Go to the page you want to paste your resume and right click your mouse again.  Again you will have options, one of which should be paste.  Click paste and there is it.    If you right click the second time and you don't get paste, go back through the above steps again and copy again and then try paste.  
Cut & paste. They expected us to type in Word and
but that still takes time to copy/paste

This company prob charges their client the same rate for the entire report; everyone is feeling the crunch!  So, let's hit the MT's pocket; I'd pass on companies like that.

Any company will leave you alone if you do your work, so that's not a plus!  

Put them in auto-correct - copy and paste. Quick and easy! nm
TSI now SoftMed was supposed to be atrocious with their DOS software and cut-and-paste work. Any
I googled labor board. Copy/paste in address bar
May have to key in either your state or company state not sure which or maybe both.

No special software. Just copy and paste the report you typed to Microsoft Word on your
computer. Under the Tools menu, select Word Count. Characters are listed with or without spaces. Take the total of either and divide by 65 to get your line count. Then match that with what your company is giving you for a line count.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, then you can download a free trial of Abacus line counting software from the internet.
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.
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.
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!!
