Details To Learn When Considering Mortuary Jobs

If you are wondering about mortuary jobs, the first thing to think about is whether you can handle the tasks that go along with the job. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining and not everyone can handle working with cadavers every day.

There are different areas of a mortuary you can choose to work in. Most mortuaries have a cosmetologist, mortuary's assistant, and funeral director to name a few.

Students that are working towards a mortuary science degree often look for entry level positions in order to gain experience in the business. One popular way to do this is to work on the funeral home support staff. This could include doing simple office work, minor duties during funerals, and even grounds keeping. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, just contact local funeral homes and ask about open positions.

Another opportunity for students, or anyone without a degree, is a transport technician. In working as a technician, you could be hired directly by the funeral home or by a third-party contractor that work for various funeral homes in the area. As a transport technician, you would be required to transport the deceased from the place where they passed to the coroner or funeral home. You will often have to console grieving families and friends at the scene and possibly answer their questions.

If you want to make funeral services a career, you will most likely need to complete an apprenticeship with a funeral services professional in order to qualify for a license. This will give you a chance to learn the business and expand your skills.

If you have a degree in mortuary science already then you can work as an embalming technician or funeral director. As a funeral director, you will arrange many of the details at funeral services, such as urn and casket sales, memorial table setups, and floral arrangements. You will need to help pre-plan funerals and often help grieving families.
