Kentucky Phlebotomy Schools and Employment Opportunities in the State's Major Healthcare Institutions

Before searching for job advertisements in the phlebotomy field, you should be prepared to send in a cover letter and resume for each opening. If you prepare your application materials ahead of time, you will not have to scramble to get them together when you see an opening that fits your skills and knowledge. If you completed a formal phlebotomy course, your instructor may have had you prepare a resume or participate in mock interviews to prepare you for your job search. Brush up on your skills by reviewing interview questions for phlebotomists or asking an experienced professional what it really means to be a phlebotomist.

Once you are ready to apply for jobs, ask people you know if they have heard about any job openings at local medical facilities. Some employers do not always place advertisements when jobs open up, so asking for referrals is a more effective way to search for a job. If you do not get any referrals, try traditional ad sources such as newspapers and sites like Craigslist and Make sure your resume and cover letter are printed on plain white paper and have no spelling or grammar mistakes.
