"I know what you're going through is very hard. The best advice I can offer is to work on "reinventing" yourself -- professionally, at least. Given your experience and degree, I don't doubt you have marketable skills, even if some…"

"If you begin working as a medic for Agency A at $40K, add all the CE that's offered, get raises of 3% a year (very generous) and stay with Agency A with the same certification in the same position, it would take about 10 years…"

Mike Rubin replied to Dalela Manning's discussion Advance in paramedicine ...
"Yes, there are courses you can take to widen your scope as a medic, although they don't necessarily improve your earning potential. What is it about paramedicine that makes you think you want to do that? Have you considered other careers…"

Mike Rubin replied to Skip Kirkwood's discussion Did I Really Hear Him Say That???? EMS personnel as disposable employees???
"Interesting. I think some of that perceived disposability of EMS workers has to do with the way we view seniority in our own industry. How do we react -- I mean inside, for real -- when we meet an EMT or a medic who has been on the streets for more…"

Ah, if it was the art of sarcasm 'asysin' was aiming for, then someone appeared to be off the mark or needs more skill in the practice. I took it as rude, but if 'asysin' believes it was otherwise, than I will truly be more than happy to apologize. Taken, it is hard to "read" the feelings behind something typed on the internet :)

Hi Mr. Rubin,

My name's Jason Friesen and I'm writing an article for JEMS in which I think one of your past articles "By the numbers" could prove a valuable resource. Problem is: I can't find it anywhere online. I was wondering if perhaps you might have a .pdf version of it you'd be willing to share. If not, perhaps you may have some other ideas.

I appreciate your time (and your article "Provocative Protocols" which has become an invaluable teaching tool for my paramedic students.")

Best Regards,
Jason Friesen
