Most employers prefer to hire technologists who are certified. Employers look for technologists who are responsible, orderly, and emotionally stable. They also look for technologists with good hand and finger control. The ability to respond quickly under stress is also an asset. Knowledge of current procedures and new developments in the field are also important.
Some employers will hire surgical technologists who do not have any work related experience. Other employers prefer to hire surgical technologists who have one or two years of experience.
Technologists advance by specializing in a particular area of surgery. For example, some specialize in open-heart surgery. They may also work as circulating technologists. These workers are the "unsterile" members of the surgical team. They prepare patients and help with anesthesia. They also interview the patient before surgery and answer the surgeon's questions about the patient during surgery.
With additional training, some technologists advance to first assistants. These workers help retract, sponge, and suture during surgery. They also help close and treat wounds. Some technologists manage supply departments in hospitals. Others take jobs with insurance companies, supply services, or medical equipment firms.
