I am hearing that some offices will hire you without certification. They will just train you...have you heard of this before?

I'm in school for it now and was like wow really? Also do you think there will be a job shortage in that field because so man people are flocking to it?

  • It depends where u live. I don't think there will be a shortage. I'm sure there r alot of people who screw it up and dropout of school or get fired!!!

  • I have been seeing those types of job ads online. I actually applied for one several months ago and all I got was spam e-mails about the schools where I can get my training. If you're seeing that online, too, don't bother.

    With the job market being how it is, you should start applying for jobs now. Just put an estimated completion date on your resume for your degree.
