Basic Details You Should Know When Selecting Jobs In Mortuary

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 many different positions at a mortuary. You could work as a hair stylist, cosmetologist, mortuary's assistant, funeral director, or even as a member of the support staff.

One popular job for people that do not have a mortuary degree and are looking for an entry level position is working as funeral home support staff. A position like this could include simple things like office work, grounds keeping, and performing minor duties during funerals. This is a great way to get into the business; simply contact funeral homes in your area and ask about support staff positions available.

Another employment opportunity for someone without a degree is a mortuary transport technician. These technicians may be hired by the funeral home, or they could work for a third-party independent contractor that funeral homes use. Transport technicians are responsible for transporting the deceased from their place of death to the funeral home or coroner. You may need to console grieving families and friends at the scene and answer any questions they may have. You must be professional, clean-cut, and arrive in a timely fashion.

If you plan on making funeral services a career, most states require an apprenticeship in order to get your license. This is a great way to learn all about the business and obtain new skills.

If you have a mortuary science degree, then you can work as an embalming technician or funeral director. As a funeral director you would arrange details of funerals, such as floral arrangements, casket and urn sales, and many other details. You will have to help families to pre-plan funerals and you will often need to console the families of the deceased.
