Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most health care opportunities?

You may want to try doing a little networking through sites like LinkedIn and Ryze. Here's a search I did for Medical Assistant in Virginia:
www.indeed.com/jobs?radius=&q=medical+assistant&l=virginia

Each job listing has a "more actions" link located in the bottom line of the listing. Click that and you'll be provided with lots of background information pertaining to that job; including direct links to networking sites. Once you start meeting people within the company/industry they should hopefully be able to lead you in the right direction.

Also take a look at the lefthand "refinement" margin. This provides you with the companies, locations and so on that have the most amount of listings related to your search. Good Luck!

Glad to help. OK, here's a revised search for Dallas, TX: www.indeed.com/jobs?q=Medical+Assistant&l=Dallas%2C+TX&radius=

Have you tried any other organizations that help people with disabilities find a job? For example, someone recently contacted me from Creative Opportunities that Work (COVA) in Ohio. They said there are lots of organizations like them that can be contacted through the Rehabilitation Services Commission, or Vocational Rehabilitation Advministration.

Hang in there. A lot of people don't realize how much time and frustration goes into job searches. It's difficult but in the end you'll find something

I have found out why the three jobs that i originaly got hired on and then unhired was because after i got hired i called the school and told the counsler per request and then she called the job and set up interviews with other students that put me on hold for a while, well i didnt get those jobs and next time i find something i will not tell her, thats very shady, by the way she did the same thing to the job that i interviewed on yesterday, im doing all the leg work, i am very hot over that
