    I am having a super hard time finding a job anywhere as an EMT. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I want to be a firefighter but im still only 18 so i have a few years. Right now im just a volunteer. My dad is a LA County Firefighter Paramedic so hes been helping me but i still can not find a job anywhere!

    I am an ER Tech and it's awesome. If you have some extra time (and a bit of extra cash) AND don't mind a bit of pain, go get your CNA real quick and then with that combination you are a sure in. (I say pain because you pretty much will have to wipe a few butts in school, but once in an ER hopefully never again). ER tech pays more than what EMTs get, although in some ways, it's not as fun, but it's something till you get on with fire or whatever you want to do.
