Have you tried hospitals? Go through their human resources department. Also labs such as Lab Corp, Quest Diagnostics etc.

I would go to the hospital. There is always a need for phlebotomists. You would develop a lot of experience with them fast. You would probably get the bad shifts that know one wants, but at least you got your foot in the door. Once you got experience in the hospital it would be much easier to apply somewhere else. Employers for phlebotomists love hospital experience, so they would want you more; maybe even hire you on the spot.

I have to agree with you on the going back in time. I have schooling behind me but can not get a job in that field either just like what I have been in for the last 22 years so I started looking at retail jobs again. So when they say schooling helps sometimes I really wonder if does

Taniqua Turner, If you can maybe take a temp. Job. and do it till that job you want comes along but if you can avoid fast food work.trust me, it's just settling for 4th best when you go fast food.

Your Grammer isn't so bad. I've certainly seen worse. Just take a moment to proof read. Good grief, we've all made this same mistake.

Maybe try volunteer work if you can afford it. Looks good on your resume. Lots of blood banks around periodically they would probably take you. People love to not pay you so if you're willing it's a good sign to future employers that you are serious about what you do. However most of us have kids to feed and such so in that case I wouldnt recommend that route unless you have someone to support you financially during the time

Local clinics, private MD offices and Urgent Care Centers may give you an opportunity. Insurance companies have health teams that do blood draws for private insurance done in the patients home. Weight management clinics like Lindora give injections daily and blood draws are part of their program at least once a month per patient. Inquire at local dialysis offices what their requirements are and if you can observe then possibly certify.
