What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

I too could become a medical assistant! Or not.

I’ve been spending the day watching too much daytime television while looking for jobs online and waiting for people to return my telephone calls about jobs. It’s that kind of a Monday. And I don’t want to go outside; it snowed here last night. As Prince sang and my father used to say, sometimes it snows in April.

While writing and editing this post, I have seen three commercials about training to be a medical assistant or medical office assistant. While the Bureau of Labor Statistics web site says this is one of the country’s fastest-growing occupations, and it may be just the job for others, I have decided it is not the job for me.

Even though half of these trade school commercials assure me that medical assistants are an important part of the health care team, I don’t think I want to spend my work days around sick people. I wince at the sight of blood and other medical-related sights.

So I’m not going to medical assisting/office assisting trade school.

But I’m still going to see those commercials until I get another job.

And don’t get me started on lawyer commercials.
