Re: Jobs

Did you try doing an externship at a local doctor's office? Some offices may be willing to let you do a small externship so you can gain experience.

When you apply for jobs, are you getting any interviews at all? If not, it could be your resume. If you're getting interviews, then it could be that you're not what they're looking for (not enough experience), or you don't interview well.

It only takes 1 place to say yes. If you can get that to happen, stay with them as long as you can to get the necessary experience so you can find something better. I lasted at my first CMA job for 10 months before landing a better one, and my first job was horrible.

Your Professional Title/Credentials: CMA

Are You Still In School? No - graduated in Nov. 2013

Are You Working? Yes
