Just need some positive vibes... Or whatever.
I moved to New York over the summer and long story short, my morticians licenses won't transfer, I can't land an internship to meet those requirements, and embalming as a skill is useful for exactly 0 things outside of embalming. I've had trouble finding a job here.

I had an interview last week with an organ donor network for a position doing tissue recovery. It's decent pay, per diem, flexible hours, and something I would really enjoy. Something that kind of keeps me in the same vein as what I was doing before.

So you know, wish me luck and whatever else you want to do in place of prayer. I'm really really hoping for this!

that sucks they are not doing the license reciprocity thing. Here's hoping your lead pans out.

One of the reasons the US system of individual state laws pisses me off, now that we've found so many ways to get around the idea of "full faith and credit".

That said, I wish you all the best. I know how tough it can be to make it in a new place when your old plans fall through. Undecided

May the Force be with you.

Have you considered taxidermy?





Seriously though, best of luck!

LOL I would have a way harder time dealing with dead animals than dead people but that video gave me a much needed laugh.

Thanks everyone!

I got an email this morning from them saying that they want to go forward with background checks and all. I'm stoked!

Congratulations! They don't do that unless they're pretty damned serious. Sounds like you're on a very short list, possibly just one name long.
