You know what you have to do that has really helped alot of people that I know are doing the same thing is bluff alittle on your resume about your experience once you are hired if medical facility has thier own way of doing there procedures and use different kinds of medical instruments,so once yur hired they'll have to show you the way they work at that facility and that is how you are going to get the knowledge more and more as you proceed your way into themedical field,trusat it has worked wonders for myself as well.

I graduated in Aug 2010 from Kaplan......had a 4.0 GPA, perfect attendance, certificate of excellence, directors list, and, did great at my externship site. I have excellent references, and have been certified through the NHA as a CCMA, CET, and CPT. I have applied everywhere within an 8 county radius and have not been called for even one interview. This is an "oversaturated" job field. There is no shortage of MA's. My school told me they had a 97% job placement rate for graduates of themedical assisting program, this is a lie. No one I attended school with in my class or the two preceding or following classes has been able to find a job. Many of these people have backgrounds in healthcare, such as being a CNA a QMA or an EMT. I wish I would have known earlier what I know now......I really poured my heart and soul, and, my finances into this losing game :(.

@Neongirl---when did you take your NHA exam? I took it in the end of August 2010 and just found out this week that the CCMA doesn't include the CET & CPT. I was waiting for the certifications to come in the mail and never got them just the CCMA and when I called they said that they don't come included no more and that I have to take the CET & CPT separately and pay for each.

I was not told about this at all. In fact when I passed the exam I was told that I would receive the CCMA Cert. Card in the mail and that I would need to send for the CET & CPT.

This is crazy!

I took the exam the second week of Aug.. I had to pay an additional 38$ for the CET and CPT cards/certificates. The CET and CPT certificates and cards arrived a week after the CCMA. Their website is confusing regarding this and could use a little updating in my opinion.

Yes, they do have to make changes. I took the exam Aug. 23rd, 2010. So I guess they changed this on this week or something. I just can't believe this. I will call on Monday and speak to a supervisor because when i registered, I was told it was all included.

Finally spoke to someone at NHA and they told me that I will be getting my CPT and CET certifications after all but said that there was a lot of confusion seeing that they technically wanted to stop including these 2 certifications starting July 1, 2010 but that schools and the website was still informing students that these were included.

So I'm happy again! :)

Try getting your Nursing Assistant certification. This can open up some entry level jobs for you. It may not be your first choice, but at least you can work and get some practical experience

I have just graduated in april of this year. I have sent out over 400 applications. I have only had 7 interviews. I too need to find work to support my family. I am volunteering at a local hospital and getting to know the office mamagers in several offices. I may not be doning clinical work and I am not getting paid but it is stating to pay off. I now have great references and recomandations form office managers and physicians who are helping me to find a position as an MA. My school let me down and didn't help me so I did everything on my own. Now I have Medical staff and phycians helping me. Volunteer may not pay but it helps

I AM NEW TO HEALTHCARE, can someone tell me the chances of finding work or how they found work in Med. Assisting or as a CNA.. Also at the tech school that I think I can afford they do not offer loans for school costs. I am over 45 yrs, what areas will that hurt me? If there will be 12 people in our M A class next summer how many will get jobs soon after coming out of clinical work at tech school.
Please comment on any of these questions or send me a link that might be helpful.

I can very much relate to you...I just saw this website, and I am feeling desperate myself. I have recently graduated from SJVC on Jan.6 of 2011. And so far I have NOT been able to find a job. I havent even been called for a single interview, and I am begining to feel useless. The onlything I get are emails back, weeks later to places I have applied too saying "at this time the position has been filled by another applicate who is better for this position". Ugh. Idk what to do..:(

And since the enonomy every where is SO bad now, places can hire the cream of the crop in this field, meaning someboy with years of experience, and hell, even hire an RN instead, they are having problems finding a job, too!

My father in law gave me some advice. Apply for jobs even if it is ot in the field you are trying to get into to hone my interviewing skills. This can help give more confidence when you finally get that interview you really want. So that you have that extra little bit of confidence that could mean they choose you over some one else even someone with more expirience. hope this helps

It is good advice, thank you. I found a job, but not in the medical field. I went to school again after Kaplan and became certified and licensed as a pharmacy tech, thinking it might help me get a job as an MA. I applied to many, many, places as a pharmacy tech and an MA and so far haven't been called for a single interview.

I too am having the same problem. I went to school and got my BA in 2008. The economy has been terrible and I never found full time work. I am now finishing medical assisting school (both clinical and admin) and can't get work. I have 5 years of admin experience, worked in a bank, etc. and can't find work. I went to an adult school so it was not too expensive, but I don't know what to do. Help! I am considering going to LVN school, but all the ones in my area have long wait lists, and to get in and do everything would take 4-6 years with wait list, pre-reqs, classes, etc.

I know here in Portland OR, LVN's or LPN's are only employed in nursing homes/senior assisted living places. Not sure how it is in other states. Here, hospitals only hire RN's. Dr's offices either have RN's or MA's or both. I was considering practical nursing until I found that out.

try indeed.com I get at least 20 postings a day for jobs in the medical field and for MA positions it is simple and easy to use. I have had in the past month over 200 job postings and I have had several interviews. I still have the problem of being fresh out of school and trying to compete but it at least gives you more oppertunity to get out there to compete.

hang in there it takes some time to get recognized by employers when you are fresh out of school. If you are a certified Pharm tech go talk to your Pharmacist. Get to know him or her. Let them know you are looking for work etc. Networking can be a great way to find job. Try just dropping into local and not local pharmacies and just dropping off your resume. Sometimes going fishing can help get the job you want.

I know what you mean i graduated in setptember of 2010 and still havent found a job yet.. and yes most places are looking for people with experience.. but check this out. you may have to get a job out side of the field and do some hours volumteering. that helps keep the mind fresh and the skills tight.. also im now studying to get my CMA/RMA soon that will help as well. at the same time im planning to go back to school to get PCT patient care tech.. so as peopl keep telling me happy hunting. something will come around soon

I'm a home care provider and a medical assistant.Maryland. I make 13.00hr to 15.00hr depending on the nature of the clients needs as a caregiver. I plan to go back to school to obtain a degree and not do any more quick carrer trainings. I rather do it the right way. I went to school for medical assistant for a year, I felt like it was a waste of time, you learn a lot more than you really need to know at the school; I went to Medix Towson. I think the program is too long to for what you get in the end(Program Completion Certificate ).That’s it; you still have to take other exams RMA,CMA etc, before the big hospitals and clinics will even want to touch you. Medical offices over work you and underpay you, I work in internal medicine giving meds ,injections, filing scheduling appointments, bone scans, EKGS, sent out labs, wrote prescriptions ,answer phones front and back office and more for 10.00hr. At the end of the day I was beat. I did not mine the work because I like to stay busy. Let me tell you it felt like modern day slavery. 10.00hr is not bad for a start but with all those duties not worth it. I think your pay should reflect your duties 10.00hr may be good for obgyn or family practice but not internal medicine.

Agreed with you! I am still outhere looking for a job since the last time I write you guys..I have had 2 interviews, one went good(I thought) But so far its been 4 weeks since then, and I havent been called. The lady even told me she would can incase I didnt get the job, just so I wouldent have to wait around. So idk. And the second was horrible. She made me feel useless. I was there on time and she didnt end up seeing me until 3o minutes later, came in rushing through. Asked me a bunch of questions I wasent prepared for, then went by saying that I had no exp. And that why I dodnt go on to study for an RN. Then she said she wasen't sure if I was going to get hired, since she had more interviews to do. There's my answer,lol. Thats my life! To finish things off I have to begin paying back my loans from this traiing in June, yet I got no job!

Please comment on any of these questions or send me a link that might be helpful.

This is June this August will make a year I have not found work. I am 52 have been told prime canidate no children at home mature life exsperience bla bla bla. I'm certified. I can't tell you in words how this makes me feel. I am so sad no one wants you fresh out of school they are wanting exsperience only. I highly advice don't go to medical assistant school if you want to be in the medicla field then go to nursing don't bother with Medical assistant schooling.I'm a good person no drugs no smoking no legal problems and I'm clean neat put together. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong. I just don't know!
