What is Medical Sonography?
What is Medical Sonography?
Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a non-invasive and painless medical test that uses sound waves to create images of blood flow, organs, and tissues to assist doctors in confirming or ruling out a specific diagnosis. Also known as ultrasound, sonography is a common tool used by doctors in obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) to monitor a woman’s pregnancy.

Brain Foods
Brain Foods
Back in the day (whenever that was) it was common to think that foods shaped like particular organs or body parts would help keep the actual corresponding body part healthy and well.

As scientific thought began to work its way to the forefront, those ideas were treated like wives’ tales or folklore. So, in today's world we can rely on science to point the way towards foods that contribute to optimal cognitive function and we no longer have to spend our time foraging for mini

Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist. New research, though, suggests AI can help with this predicament by making MRI scans four times faster, getting patients in and out of the tube quicker.

Job Search Strategies and Resources

The job search process to construct a well-managed professional life requires 21st century career-readiness skills, including communication, problem solving, digital technology, and career management. Fortunately, your Casa Loma College education has prepared you well for this experience.

Preparation, Research, And Connections.

Target Your Search
It’s hard to search for any job anywhere. Even though you are open to many options and/or just need a job, research, and prioritize at least a handful of options that appeal to you most. You can always expand a search, but it’s very hard to look for the “needle in a haystack.” Narrow your focus by geographic region and/or type of facility.

Leverage Your Connections
Spend most of your job search time talking with people you know and can meet – referral is an employer’s preferred method of hire and many positions are never advertised. Networking is the job search strategy with the biggest payoff.

Research and Apply Directly to Employers
The Internet is a great research tool, but don’t spend all your time on third-party job boards, which are much less effective. Use your Google skills to search for strings like “Valencia Imaging Centers” to identify employers who do the kind of work that interests you in the geographic location of your choice. Then go directly to employers’ own sites, where they’re most likely to advertise jobs if they do so at all. Look for “About Us,” “Jobs,” “Careers,” “Employment,” etc.

Third-Party Sites
Indeed.com is the world’s most comprehensive third-party job search site. It’s a free, meta-search site that crawls other third-party sites as well as employers’ own sites to compile job listings in response to your search criteria.

Targeted sites like professional association job boards (e.g. Registered Nursing Jobs, APTA Career Center, SDMS Careers, etc.) are better than generic boards. You may have to pay to join, but it could be a worthwhile investment.

Attend Career Fairs
Job fairs are a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with an employer’s representative. Getting face time can set you apart from the competition. To prepare for a career fair:

  • Visit the fair’s website to see employers who will attend.
  • Research employers that interest you by visiting their websites.
  • Create targeted resumes for each position that interests you.
  • Wear professional attire and carry only a briefcase or portfolio with your resumes.

Follow Up
Follow up on every job lead immediately. Contact employers via phone within two weeks of applying to check on your status in their selection process. And send thank-you letters within 24 hours to each person who interviews you or serves as a networking contact. Finally, once you have applied for a position, be prepared that any phone call you get could be a screening interview. Know what steps you will take toward a successful interview.
