Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. There’s a great show coming up for you this week as we kick off the new year here on the MedicCast. First off, in the news this week, we take a look at several EMS new items including a look at how a paramedic impersonator caused some issues in one Pennsylvania area. Then, in our tip segment this week, I got EMS Leadership podcast host Chris Cebollero on the phone to pick his brain about how to interview for a job as an EMT or paramedic. That’ll be coming up later in this week’s tip of the week.

Tip of the Week: Landing the Perfect EMS Job

This week on the show, as we enter a new year here on the MedicCast, I thought I would bring you a segment requested by many of you by email and Facebook. It seems that you’d like some tips on job interviewing for EMS jobs and I thought I would go straight to the top and get you some tips from Chief Chris Cebollero, the host of the EMS Leadership podcast. I got Chris to take some time from his busy holiday schedule last week to spend some time on the phone with me and talk about how to get that EMS dream job and other interviewing tips that EMS managers look for when hiring paramedics and EMTs.
