Re: New graduate looking for work

From:Lee & Peggy Wenk

Good luck on taking your certification exam.

One place to look for jobs is at the Histotech's Home Page:

1. Click on Peggy's Links, then click on Jobs

I have about 10-12 links to site that help people who
are looking for jobs. Most are sites that help anyone
(e.g., some are sites that link to 20-50+
newspapers all over the country. Two are sites that
specialize in histology jobs. Some sites are the type
that you do all the work, some sites are "headhunters".

2. Two other sites on the Histotech's Home Page:

A. Click on "Histotechs Looking for Jobs". Steven will post
a notice that you are looking for work, and where.

B. Click on "Jobs in Histology Bulletin Board". This site
lists histology jobs across the country.

Please be aware, Steven Slap posts these for free, but
during his "free" time - when he's not working, not on the
road at state histology meetings, not demonstrating
equipment to labs, not taking care of his son, etc. So
if you are in a hurry, this is not the site for you.

There is no charge.

3. NSH Home Page

Go to

You can look for jobs all over the country, or can list
yourself as looking for a job.

There are forms you can click on, to fill out.

There is no charge for a histotech to list that they
are looking for a job. (There is a charge for
hospitals/labs to post a job opening.)

4. ASCP Job Page.

Go to

Click on "Jobs".

Pick "Histologic Technician/Histotechnologist"

That's all I can think of for right now. Good luck!
