Working for this lab serves as a precious and rare opportunity for new graduates, and thanks to this partnership, students who successfully complete a Quest externship program have a better opportunity of being hired by this company. The partnership between Tri Med Training Institute and Quest Diagnostics hinges on how many outstanding candidates are produced through the program," Ortiz states.

The job outlook for this profession remains very positive and is expected to grow at 27 percent through 2022. This is much faster than average, when compared with all occupations,

"Anyone who loves to work with people may wish to consider a job as a phlebotomist. Individuals working in the field are typically employed in hospitals, blood donation centers, doctor's offices and medical and diagnostic labs.
