Even though there is a high demand for phlebotomists, this doesn’t mean you will coast into a job in any hospital. As more opportunities are rising, more people are becoming qualified, which will in turn take away many jobs. Hospitals aren’t the only place to obtain a job, and you may be able to find work in a smaller centre, such as private hospitals or small local facilities. These may not pay as well though, and you may find you are working less hours than you would in a hospital. Either way, if you can’t get into a hospital, then it is worth getting into a smaller facility just to get some experience in how the job works.
