Hi,

I am a new MT grad from Canada, I am having trouble finding many companies that hire internationally. Any help with company names would be wonderful.

I have found a few, but there seems to so many (that I can find) that only hire US citizens. Which I am not.

When I do find a place that hires Canadians, it seems that not many will except CV's from anyone with less than 2-3 years experience.

I did almost get a job a Sten-tel. I got 96.222% on the transcription portion. You needed 96.5% to get the job. I had passed everything (even the phone interview), was a tad disappointing to say the least.:rolleyes:

So any helps, hints, advice and names of companies or directions to said companies or list of would greatly be appreciated.


Thank you all in advance.

I asked some MTs about companies in Canada, and one of them suggested these two, but I know nothing about the companies or whether they are actually hiring:

About Us - Accentus (http://www.accentus.ca/about_us/index.php)
MedQuist Canada Co. (http://www.medquistcanada.com/)

When a company says they want experience, I'd recommend sending a resume anyway, sometimes they'll give a newbie a chance even if they don't advertise that they will.

I'd be tempted to try to get Sten-tel to reconsider accepting that score.

Good luck!
