Rural Metro EMT/Paramedic Scholarship

From  Tri-State Defender  4/29/13

Attention high school seniors with EMT or paramedic dreams

There is a national shortage of emergency medical technicians (EMT) and paramedics and an even greater shortage of minorities who choose emergency medical services as a profession. This is a statistic that Rural/Metro Ambulance wants to change.

For the last six years, Rural/Metro has offered a scholarship program for Tennessee minority high school seniors who are interested in furthering their education to become an EMT or paramedic.

Students who receive a scholarship will attend an EMT school in Shelby County. After completing the two-year program, successful students will then be ready to take the national test to receive their EMT license.

“This is a great opportunity for minority high school seniors who are interested in a field where they have an opportunity to help others and make a difference in someone’s life,” said Nikki Gast, Rural/Metro’s market general manager.

Students who want to apply for the EMT/Paramedic Scholarship must submit an essay of 500 words or less answering this question: Why I want to enter the field of Emergency Medical Services?

The essay must include the student’s name, phone number, address, school, and reference letter and mailed to the following address: Rural/Metro Ambulance, ATTN: Scholarship Panel, 100 Crescent Drive, Collierville, Tenn. 38107. The information also can be emailed to

The deadline to submit an essay is May 8, 2013.

Advice from HR recruiters

Didn’t get the job? Here’s some advice from HR recruiters

By JIM PAWLAK Career Moves

I sat and observed as HR recruiters from six firms held an open forum with more than 50 job seekers at a church-sponsored job club. Here’s some of the dialog:

Answering an ad

• If the ad lists “x” number of qualifications and you don’t match all of them, don’t bother applying. The recruiters said that most ads generate more than 100 responses. Over three-quarters of the responses don’t meet all the job qualifications and are discarded. It’s frustrating to HR because sorting through large numbers of unqualified applicants is unproductive. They also said that when they find eight to 10 candidates, they don’t read the remaining résumés.

• One of the job seekers asked about not including salary history information when the ad asked for it, but didn’t say it was mandatory. The HR managers were divided on this one. Four said that salary history was a “good to know”, but not a job qualification; two said they used salary history to screen out candidates that didn’t fit their pay range, and would disqualify applicants who didn’t include it.

Cover letters and résumés

• Please proofread; every HR manager said misspellings disqualified applicants. They believed that candidates who didn’t pay attention to detail in personal marketing material wouldn’t be detail-oriented on the job. All indicated that e-mail cover letters contained far more misspellings than snail mail. Poor grammar fared a bit better; most managers were willing to let minor grammatical errors slide, unless the job required substantial written communication.

• Cover letters should have bullet points, not paragraphs. If it takes more than two minutes to read it, it’s too long. Résumés should be two pages max; a 12 point font is easiest to read. Most have “Objectives” stating what the applicant wants; employers prefer a “Skill Summary” that shows what an applicant offers. If you’ve been in the workforce for more than five years, focus on your accomplishments during the last five years. Why? Employers consider that period the indicator of your current skills. Use bullet points (no more than two sentences) to describe accomplishments. Don’t list anything personal (e.g. hobbies, marital status, health, non-work-related activities, etc).

• Chronological résumés are preferred to functional formats because they show work history. If there are gaps that can be easily explained (e.g. raising a family, taking care of family member, going to school full time, etc.), these should be put in the résumé.

• Refresh online résumés every week because employers search by posting date. They want “new” job seekers. When responding online, use a text format (.txt) résumé because it can be opened universally.

The interview

• Dress business-professional no matter what job you are applying for, or what dress code the employer has. One recruiter’s workforce is about 70 percent non-union, production workers; she said: “Production workers that come dressed like they’re going to work, rather than dressed-to-impress for the interview, don’t get hired. Being well-dressed sends a message that you’re serious about wanting the job. We may be oddballs about this, but our turnover is less than 5 percent.”

• While skills are important, the deciding factors in the hiring decision are attitude and energy. Interviewers gauge attitude and energy during an interview by body language, how much an applicant smiles, tone of voice (i.e. enthusiastic versus monotone) when discussing accomplishments and the questions they ask the company and the job (the more the better) – just don’t ask questions about compensation, benefits, travel or hours worked unless the interviewer brings it up.

• Four of the six firms have applicants take personality assessment tests before making a job offer. All include job peers in the interview process to get a feel for “team” fit. Interviewers also focus on open-ended behavioral, “How would you… ?” questions.

• At the end of the interview, ask about the decision timeline and protocol for follow-up. Sending a hand-written thank you to each interviewer makes a good second
