Career Recruitment Tool Kit

A Guide to Recruitment Materials and Activities for Careers in Clinical/Medical Laboratory Science

About the Tool Kit

Laboratory professionals are often asked to give talks and/or presentations at career day or other recruitment events for elementary, middle, high school, or college-age students. The Clinical Laboratory Careers Tool Kit is a collection of recruitment materials, some of which are free, and activities that can be used to assist in giving a presentation. Other items found in the tool kit are information about the workforce shortage, education programs, certification agencies, and personnel licensure information.

To open the Tool Kit, click on the "Read More" link in each category to find information to help you with your recruitment efforts. The site is designed for all laboratory professionals — staff techs, supervisors, managers, and educators.  Also, middle school and high school educators are also welcome to use the resouces provided in this toolkit.
