resume cut/paste
This might help you out :)
When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
Please do not put your resume in the form of a medical report.
For starters, using patient's names is incorrect and you have yours all throughout that medical report.  I don't know who started this, but it is simply NOT professional and that resume will go very quickly in the dead resume bin.
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???

I got the same form email today and

17 years experience here.

How can you receive an email form your
company if your email is not typed exactly right? It will never be delivered into your inbox, but will go right back to the company, as 'not able to deliver.'

Wilma reincarnated. Cut and paste same response. Cut and paste. nm
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.
Wish they'd respond to my email and resume.
Took the test, did everything right and it's now been three weeks. After 15 yrs of experience, I know I did fine on the test. Guess they aren't hiring.
I just sent them my resume using the email on their site... sm
I used Emdat in the past with one job and thought it was just fine.  I see some people hated it but really I remember liking it.  I also know I used a foot pedal when I worked on it... has that changed?  I can't remember now if it was a USB or 9-pin pedal though. 
Yes, I did email my resume at that point, but I never heard from them. -
Now the ad says to fax your resume only. I wouldn't do it for 9 to 13 cpl anyway. Would you?
I sent my resume, but never got the password via email to take the test, did you? nm
It gives you a screen so you can insert your resume and email address.
Well I just re-sent my resume to the corrected email address he gave.
I just got it back saying it is undeliverable. Makes me wonder what type of company this is if they can't get their email straight.
If you fax a resume and/or test files do you follow with an email the next day?

Just curious what others do.

Submitted resume 9/28 late at night. Received email today. nm
any comments about them get deleted, check archives or MTSPOT.
The recipient probably ignored the legal - sm
disclaimer contained in the email she received the letter under.  Oh, yes, a company would want her working for them in a heartbeat - LOL.  Follows directions, check - oops, not.  Adheres to confidentiality rules, check, oops not.  You're absolutely right though, it is HER letter, but HER letter that most likely came with a confidentiality disclaimer.
Oh, I've been the recipient of that junk too.
I've worked many, many evening shifts doing all the dictators and junk everyone skipped or logged off and left for me. But, it's my job to do whatever is assigned to me. But I'm not like that - I know those people have hurt us, as a whole, but I genuinely was very ill and the room was spinning while I was typing. From a quality standpoint - I hope they double-checked everything I typed that day, because I really was so sick. I've typed with clogged ears while battling a cold, coughing my brains out with bronchitis, even running to the bathroom with you-know-what, but this UTI made me so feverish, lightheaded and in pain from urgency and frequency, that I debated going to the ER ... it was that bad. Literally, I sat typing with tears running down my face. NO job is worth that.
The recipient has chosen to share HER letter with us. 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
MQ definitely sends it out.
Yes, MQ definitely sends it out and
my prediction is that one of these days they will send it ALL out. I got out while the getting was good!
Another one, Interpro, sends a lot of theirs to India

as well as other locations outside the US

If STM sends e-mail to her 4 accounts
saying system is slow and then send another saying that if system freezes and we lose a report we can get paid for that, that isn't an ISP issue.   It doesn't matter if it is just one account, it happens to be my account and that is enough of an issue to me. 
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?
My MTSO sends us normals for those few doctors

that you them.  They are usually a fill in the blank type thing with the doctors only giving the blanks, so there isn't much to mess up.   We do have a few normals that need to be modified and there are only a few MTs that get these dictators, because of the same issue your MTSO, that changes are not made, etc.   I am allowed to create my own normals and do.   If I have a doctor that needs to have the same normal, but occasionally does change things, I only have my normal including what is ALWAYS the same and then I have macros for statements that are frequently dictated that I can use to piece together the rest of the document.

I can't imagine my company forbiding us to use normals.  My company wants the MTs to be productive, because if they are producing they are making money and if they are making good money they are happy and the MTSO will have good retention of MTs, which they have had.  It also benefits the MTSO to have high producing MTs, so that they can have fewer MTs and less costs/hassle.




That's so the clients won't notice when AcuQuist sends
them, of course). It'll all look the same --- like it was dictated by a child, and transcribed by an orangutan.

I guess that's the tack their business model is taking: 'We're a player in the global game because we've lowered our standards to their level of mediocrity and ineptitude.'
Spheris sends most work to India. SM
They are most certainly NOT a company to work for, if you are a single mom.
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.
Does anyone know the name of a transcription company in Maryland that sends all of its work to
India. Just curious.
Any company who wants to stay in business sends work out
It is called a blended model.  Hospitals are demanding a better price and US companies must offer offshore work that is edited by US MTs to compete.  It is just like voice recognition, a company must offer this platform or lose the ability to bid on the work.  It is not for every hospital and it is not for every situation.  Therefore, if a company does not have the ability to offer a lower price with non-domestic labor plus have a  voice rec option, they will find themselves unable to compete in tomorrow's marketplace.  Those who cannot compete will lose market share and continue to run out of work.  Those who can compete will continue to hire MTs and grow market share.
Absolutely, sends work to India, Phillipines...sm
She's something alright, sending work offshore instead of paying someone in the US a workable wage. Name of company is Another Medical Must...owned by Renee Lella....look her up on Google and see how that's worked for her in the past, with a major leak of patient records due to dealing with the Indian company and their MTs. She trains her MTs most of the time using her cell phone in the car while doing errands or picking up kids...horrible. Bad, bad experience, never again. She looks at this board occasionally and still posts for job openings once in a while, but always under an alias or different name, sometimes maria...sometimes another name. Shifty.
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.
Should I attach or copy and paste
the questionnaire and resume into an email when sending them back to Webmedx? No preference was given.
Maybe we should all form - nm
Nothing really...ASR is just MQ form of it.
Or at least as far as I know, but I've only done it at MQ...so I very well could be wrong:-)
Agree with Patti. MTOS sends 1099 as courtesy,
Transcend sends all the good work to India and leaves all the
garbage for the MTs in the States so they can keep the indian slime working. n donkeys are that do the work. Transcend is not a good place to work
I dont answer the mass emails she sends out. What bothers me is we are not anywhere
near out of TAT and she just then sends out these mass emails and everyone piles on and runs the account out.  Then when you get a few more reports she does it again.  It just keeps going on like that.  I have no idea what the problem is.  I dont acknowledge the emails at all I just cant get a grip on why someone would function like that.  It is almost like she isnt happy until she runs the account out and then expect all the ICs which we are to sit around until it comes back in and then be at her beck and call.  It seems to be getting worse and worse lately with this.  She has taken the word control to extremes especially with ICs.  She expects you to let her know if you are going to move your butt of your computer for a half hour.  I just dont get it but it gets extremely old I must say.
And you're okay with working for a company that sends most of its work to India and

whose workforce is predominantly Indian?  You're okay with the loss of American jobs, the falling recession we are in and the falling economy due in big part to the offshoring of American jobs?  How okay will you be when you lose your job to an Indian and you have to apply for food stamps and unemployment?

Sell-out MTs like you are the reason good MTs cannot make a decent wage anymore, why good MTs cannot find a good job anymore, and why sweats shops in third world countries are thriving.  How do you look at yourself in the mirror?

Focus Infomatics employs 800 American MTs and over 3000 Indian MTs.  Tech support is in India.  The company itself is still run by the same Indian man who started the company and sold out to Nuance.  He made a bundle when he sold and he is still making a bundle running the company while he pays his own countrymen and woman peanuts!  He's selling out his own people and you are selling out yours!  On second thought, I guess you belong at Focus with your own kind!

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.
