It was the summer of 2006 when I first set foot in the USA. I was excited to start a new chapter of my career in the most sought after country in the world as a bench Medical Technologist. I remembered applying for a job online around Christmas time of the prior year without expecting that I’ll be able to relocate the next year. Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC gave me that life changing opportunity I needed. The laboratory department had several vacancies that they cannot fill due to the scheduled hours or lack of qualified candidates. They sponsored my working visa until I was able to leave my beloved country, the Philippines. Moving from another country needs a lot of courage, emotional maturity, financial resources and resiliency. I can still vividly remember walking in the snow going to work, adjusting to the language, blending into the environment and socializing with the diversity of people in my workplace. It was not easy but definitely worth it. In the middle of every difficulty lies an opportunity. I was able to help my family financially and grow my career professionally with the right mentorship and support. As a testament of the kind of work ethics I showed, I was able to refer and recruit 6 of my colleagues from the Philippines to work in the Laboratory! 

That was 16 years ago. I am now a naturalized American citizen and serves as an Administrative Director of Operations for the Laboratory Services in one of the nationally recognized medical centers in the greater Washington/Baltimore area. Currently, the USA is experiencing a considerable shortage of allied health professionals that includes Clinical Laboratory Scientist aka Medical Technologist. As an administrator, I felt the need of expanding how we source our talents. One of the most difficult challenges is to find qualified candidates that can be trained and retained. I believe the Philippines has one of the largest pools of well trained and educated CLS that can be deployed to the US in order to ease the worsening manpower shortage. Our company is dedicated to help employers outsource the best talents and retain them in order not to disrupt clinical/laboratory operations and patient care. For the candidates, we will help you settle in the US, adjust to your living and working environment, provide the emotional support through previous experiences and most especially to have a family away from home. 
It can be a very complicated process from start to finish but we have the mission of making it easy to our clients. The time and expenses spent on this project will definitely outweigh the advantages it will provide to your organization. As I always say to my senior executive leadership, plant the seed today and you’ll reap the benefits in the future. 

For our future CLS, rest assured you’ll be in good hands and it will be both beneficial to your personal and professional life. We will help you secure that permanent residency in the land of milk and honey with your determination to succeed. You will be supported every step of the way. Let me end this inspiring story with one of my favorite quotes….” We can’t control our destiny, but we can control who we become.”
We are looking forward to working with your company and help you achieve your recruitment goals. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need additional information.
