Re: No wonder so many can't find a job


Message: You can't think that firing out resumes over the internet is going to find you a job. Companies recieve tousands of resumes that way. You have to be different. I would recommend getting in your car and finding a medical office complex and stopping in at each one and asking for the practice manager to see if they are looking for anyone. You would be amazed at how effective that is. A lot of finding a job is timing, you might be at the right place at the right time and meeting them face to face puts a name with a face. Take a stack of resumes and cover letters with you and then get a card from wherever you go. Follow up with them a week or 2 later and see if that doesn't work better for you. Employers want people who are commited; and stopping in again and again shows you have that commitment. I promise you that your chances will increase each time you do this.

Job Search Strategies

Most medical coding and billing entry postitions require only a high school diploma. Certification is preferred but not always required. However, the better jobs, promotions and salaries almost always go quicker to those who are certified because employers expect reliability, and results.

Those who figure out ways to impress potential employers during the application process are usually the ones most likely to get the job. Always find ways to stand out from the rest, be prepared to be tested, and ready to compete for the position you want. Study your medical terminology, anatomy, and physiology. Make sure your resume reflects all prior employment and focuses on skills, and qualifications, and don't be surprised if employers want to see if you can do what you say you can! You may also have to undergo a criminal background check.
