Medical Laboratory Technician
February 1st, 2017

Medical Laboratory Technicians perform complex medical laboratory tests for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Medical Laboratory Technicians are found in hospitals, clinics, private laboratories, public health organizations, research and development departments of pharmaceutical companies.

Toxicology, chemistry, hematology...OH MY! As a Medical Laboratory Technician you'll need to be fluent in all types of laboratory tests. Not only will you need be able to run various tests but you'll need to be able to perform the administrative duties that come along with the job. Your documentation skills, ability to analyze information, chemistry techniques and your ability to maintain an effective and safe environment are a few of the characteristics you need as a Medical Laboratory Technician. In addition to your two year degree as a Medical Laboratory Technician most states require you to be licensed and certified.

To prepare for this interview you'll need to do a little detective work to see what types of testing they do in the lab you are applying to. Don't worry if the interviewer asks about your experience with a particular piece of equipment you are unfamiliar with. Let the interviewer know that because of your attention to detail and patience you can learn anything.
