What Keeps You in the Profession?
We received a comment today that reads: "After 14
years of being a medical technologist, and all the crazy hours I have
had to work, and all the overtime I worked, I still enjoy what I do. I
could not think of another profession which gives me the same feeling
of satisfaction of working hard at a job, and seeing results (literally)
which directly impacts patient care." Kudos to the person who submitted the comment! And hats off for sticking with the profession.
Seeing the comment submitted on our site reminded me of a feature I want to include in our National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week issue in 2008. I want to gather up comments from those who have been in the field at least 10 years to answer, whether in a paragraph or an entire article, this simple question: "What keeps you in the profession?"
