Are you interested in taking a Physical Therapy Aide course but are not sure if there are jobs?

 
According to Katrice Mubiru, Physical Therapy teacher, this is a question that a lot of her students ask.  Here is her answer: If you check on-line you will see some jobs but they are highly competitive because they get many applicants. I still encourage my students to apply online but they should always do a follow up call if possible. The reason that you want to follow up by phone is to ensure that a live person actually does get a chance to see your resume/application. Oftentimes employers get overloaded with applications and may not get to yours unless until you call to inquire about the status of your application.
