Hi Lakisha, I find that if you did not have the opportunity to participate in an intern/extern program it is very difficult to get an entry-level position in allied healthcare no matter your specialty. I would check all avenues and facilities that are even remotely connected to your specialty. Look for opportunities to volunteer or network with other phlebs. I am in a similar situation, so I have begun to talk to everyone, anywhere. Some conversations have led to opportunities to apply for positions and even if they didn't work out at least it was a chance that I did not have before. Don't give up, the perfect situation is waiting for you. Good luck.
Wow what state are you located in ?
