I just recently graduated from Medical Assisting school in November, Im so upset because I cant find a job. Everytime I have an interview I get a letter or an email saying they hired someone with more experience. They have so many schools turning out thousands of MA's with no luck with a job. All these schools are making good money promising a bright future. They get there money and were stuck paying back money for nothing.

Its true, sad but true. I graduated in Dec. of 07 and i never found a job as a medical assistant due to lack of experience. You either get hired off of your Intern/Extern site or your stuck paying the THOUSANDS of dollars for the training... for NOTHING!

I know what you mean, I graduated on July 2007 and have had no luck in getting a job. why? no experience. I did my externship at a hospital and with 2 of my friends, and we didn't get hired. Now I'm stuck with thousands of dollars in debt but no job.

This is soooo disapointing to work your tail off graduate with honors and fan fair just to have all of your hard work mean nothing but cash for your school of choice.I do have a new job as stay at home dad and no source of income for my daughter who lives in another state just to have child support come looking for me and student loans to pay off with no way to do either.I was laid off from my job and went back to school like most of us and we are left off worse than before.I wish employees would give us a shot at our dream and know that we are trained and know the same thing that anybody with experience knows.If anybody in the Tampa Florida area has any openings and serious about needing a M.A.who is serious about his future please e-mail at jdeenfla@yahoo.com

I am looking for another Intern now because the first one I wasn't learning anything. The Office there was very self centered and all they hire was Intern's. Only 2 real hourly employees and when I first got there it was about 8 people fired 2 real employees left.. I am looking for a nice place to work and grow with/ a place where I can learn more and be open to work back and front office, as I was designed to do in school. If anyone no someone who's hiring please let me know.. I have been filling out applications everywhere for the last past 2weeks.

I need HELP!!! lol..lol..

Thanks, I have Faith that God will place use all in the place best for us all, so all my fellow Medical Assistants KEEP YOUR HEADS UP!!!! Our Day will come...

Thanks for the kind words towards the end of your meassage but i have been looking for almost for 10 months and nothing.You say you have been looking for just 2 weeks you gone be looking way longer than that so get prepared to be turned down and be looked at like a piece of crap because you are a recent graduate like most of us.The frustration level is unreal because they will look over you for experience and being biligual so i hope you got people that is going to help you get through this tough time cuz you gone need them because that is what you are going to get.Just keepin it real with you and tryin to let you know how we are getting treated.

Hi Everyone! I'm glad I found this forum. I graduated from school as a MA(honor student) last December and as of today I still don't have a job,since the only experience I have as a MA is the internship...I have applied to at least 50 jobs online and went to a few interviews but nothing :( Sometimes I feel sorry I went through all this and I paid $12,500 and yet I DON'T have a job:( I loved the clinic where I did the internship,they really liked me too but they had no openings for me...This is extremely depressing and I understand everyone out there that doesn't have a job feels. :(

I am currently a medical assistant student in Chicago and in the middle of completing my last class. I am having so much trouble finding a clinical training site and its getting very frustrating! I have been calling every doctor office/clinic etc for a month and a half and I still have no place to train!I am a very hard worker with a strong work ethic and always eager to learn even if its starting from a lower rank position because I know I will soon be where I want to be, but you all are so very correct that these schools promise such a bright future, you make the best grades and it all seems like such a waste of your time and then you are stuck paying back a student loan, how the hell you going to do that with no job because most places here want you to have a year or two of experience, something got to change!

Any advice on looking for an MA job? I completed my externship in August and got rave reviews from the clinical manager. I functioned independently for the most part. I still don't have a job due to, I would imagine, my lack of experience. What about advice on writing a cover letter? Also, some of these websites are akin to putting your info. into a big, black hole.

This question is for Gregory and Ms. Conner in Chicago. I'm just wondering what schools did you attend? Were you taught more on the clinical or administrative side? I have been out of work for a while now and was thinking about maybe taking this program - I'm not sure though because I already have to pay back loans as it is. I'm just wondering what are the employers actually looking for? Any info you can provide would be helpful. Thanks.

Having a good cover letter is good but let me be honest a cover letter is not what they are looking for they looking for experiance and no cover letter or anything else besides experiance will get you hired.Do not sweat the small stuff we all out here got good cover letters and resumes and nothing.You aint no diffrent than anybody else with a good cover letter so wait your turn be patient because you are goin to need it.Like most of us who has been looking for almost a year or longer to hear some of these people act like they is somehow special because of a good cover letter is really out of touch of what's really going on with what these people are looking for.When you are spending long days and nights trying to find a job and when you begin questioning yourself is when you arrive where we are and that is with a good cover letter.They only want experiance keep trying and good luck.

Thank you jdeenfla, I appreciate your taking the time to write....I am very discouraged. You are telling me that it takes a long time even though the hype says that M. Assisting is the fastest growing job. What did you do, just keep applying with a resume? Can you give me an idea for a good cover letter?

Thank you so much,

I went to Illinois school of health careers.. We were thought basiclly more of the clinical stuff not so much in the administrative side... but we also had a lab where we would go 3 times a week.... the teacher was nice and he I did learn a lot of things from him... but the school in general I would rate it about a 7 out of 10... the stuff wasn't really doing their jobs.. and what they tell you when they first show everyone around the school, nothing is really true.. well anyways the school was $12,500 but i did get financial aid about 4000$... Now I heard that it costs about $14,000, not sure if that's true.... As far as finding a job the school is not really doing much, I mean they don't have any hospitals/clinics where they can just send some of the students that are having a hard time finding a job... all they are doing is sending me some job postings that I believe they just sent to every other student out there, It was funny once I got a job post from them that was actually in Wisconsin and I live in Chicago....anyways if you have any more questins I'll be here...

No problem.. i am just sayin the things that these schools choose not to say to a graduate also adds to the frustration level of all of this cuz they taking our money and not fulfilling there end of the bargain.Basically we are on our own when finding our own carrer path and that is where the long nights and days come from cuz those schools got what they want and we have to get what we want and that is a job.Now bout the cover letter stuff i have had several on-line resume checks and professional cover letter checks and corrections on-line.You kinda got to talk to your so called carrer development people at your school to get someone who knows a little about writing cover letters and resumes to look at it and tell you if your cover is exceptable or not cuz they do know what is the newest way of writing a cover or resume cuz the cover and resume letter thing seem to always change.

my niece went to ISHC as well in Chicago, I was going to attend but the online course was more workable in my schedule, I really wish I was in the classroom when learning the book stuff because I "get it" better through visual means, but the trend on every forum seems to be the schools are not doing enough to help the students find work or externships for clinical training, it really make you feel as a student you did all you could , got the good grades etc, but when it comes time to find a clinical training site you are on your own with little or no help from school staff. You would think they know a clinic/hospital etc will not accept students with no experience or are not affiliated with their practice through the CVhicagoland area city colleges, it is so frustrating!

I appreciate your replies. That is what I was basically wondering - if the school also found your clinical training or did you have to find that on your own. I was assuming with all the hospitals Chicago has, you would think that these college programs would also include the hands on training too. Just my opinion though.
I would like to still use my admin experience and want to get into the health care field but just not sure which path I should take.

EdiRabbit in Red Oak, Texas

I graduated back in July of this year and have yet to find anything as an MA. My school has done nothing at all to help me find a job. The only thing they offered me was Home Health Care, which there's nothing wrong with, but I wouldn't be doing anything except cleaning people's houses and accompanying them to doctor's appointments. I went to school for Medical Assiting, not housekeeping. And since it's paid for by the State, I would only be paid minimum rage and no reimbursement for gas. I went in for the interview, was told I was hired and then never heard from them again. I called for two weeks trying to get a hold of the woman that 'hired' me and never received any calls back. I've sent out an endless amount of resumes to offices up to an hour away from where I live and still nothing. I enjoyed school and loved my extern site and feel I'm more than qualified at what I do. I'm completely baffled as to why I still haven't found a job anywhere. Everyone wants experience or wants an RN. I'm just slightly relieved I'm not the only one having trouble finding placement.

Any career that you choose while is medical assistant or doctor you won't get hired without experience why because they don't provide the chance to give it and if they do it will be temporaly.

I may be crazy, but reading through these posts, I hope many of you don't talk the way you type! If this is how you type or write, this may be the reason you are not getting a job. When you submit a resume, or go to an interview, it is about how you look, how you speak, how you write, and how you present yourself that matters. You are not entitled to a job JUST because you went to school to be a Medical Assistant. I read on here a girl who said she got straight A's, but I could hardly read her post there were so many grammatical errors. You need to impress people when you meet them for a job, not just "show up," It is hard for everybody in this economy - not just MA's. I am a recruiter for Engineering - and trust me, none of you are alone, but it is the whole package, not just your education that matters.

Hello all, I know exactly what you all are going through. I finished Medical Assisting School in Dec 2009 and went to an extern site where they did nothing but get on myspave and their cell phones all day. Plus the Dr was only in the office half day for two days out of the week. I called my school because I was no longer interested in this practice due to the point of the long drive plus no hands on. I have yet to hear from anyone at my school and when I do call I get the "We have not heard from anyone yet". What good is that.. I have been cold calling and sending resumes with cover letters. I still have not heard anything from anyone. I did however go to the hospital volunteer center and sign up. I just hope this school will use these hours so I can complete this Medical assisting program. Not happy with the school and just want to finish so I can take the National and move on with the next chapter which includes hopefully finding a job. The only thing to do is just keep our heads up and pray. If anyone can give me leads on any other extern sites or jobs, I would really appreciate it.

Apply to the jobs that want experience anyways offten times they re willing to trade experience for the lack of bad habits many experienced MA's already have but in your free time volunteer you may get hired in that way or make connections needed to find a job.

Thanks for your support. I am volunteering at a hospital already and they are also going to train me as a Patient Avocate. I just hope after my hours are complete I can get a job but I plan on volunteering still. I will follow your advice and do that. Thanks again.

Nanlisa in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania said: I'm so sorry to hear what you're all going through and it's a shame. You pay all this money to go to school to become a medical assistant and you can't even find a job because they want experience. They don't want trainees. How are you going to get experience if they don't want to train you?

I can't cleary stress this but when these schools advertise for medical assistant training, they don't tell you the whole story and they glamorize the medical field as well. OK so you're in a job that you hate. You go to this one school to become a medical assistant, and then whoopie doo, all of a sudden, you're on Cloud Nine and you now have a "career that you love". They don't tell you exactly what a medical assistant does. They don't tell you that you have to pass a state test before you become a medical assistant. I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that you have to take an industry-approved course before anybody can hire you.

But don't give up. Keep on trying.

Thanks. I am going to take the National (NHA) exam after I complete my hours at the hospital. I am now studying for it. I just would like to pass it because I have this anxiety to tests for some reason.

nurse45 in San Antonio, Texas said: HOW CAN YOU GET YOUR FIRST JOB IF ALL THE JOBS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD REQUIRE EXPERIENCE, JOBS DON'T WANT NEW GRADS.

I too was extremely frustrated after graduating from my Medical Assistant course. I have some info to share that may be of help.

I started out my job search aggressively by sending out cover letters and resumes in response to any medical assistant listing I came across. Next, I decided to apply to any other job listings which offered job responsibilities similar to those of a medical assistant. My theory: get my foot in the door, wow them with my skills, and become next in line to fill an open medical assistant spot. I learned that this was probably not such a good idea. I read somewhere online that this practice might indicate to a potential employer that you're unfocused (confuses them as to what type of job you're truly looking for) or you're desperate for a paycheck.

My first suggestion is to create a portfolio for yourself. Invest in a nice presentation binder with enough tabs for categories such as cover letter, resume, certificates, references, samples of work (docs created in Word, Excel or PowerPoint, if you want that considered as one of your selling points), etc. In each section, have a three-hole punched, clear plastic sleeve to slip in copies of the doc labeled for that section. Now you can easily compile a "complete package" for mailings, interviews, or distribution at a job fair. This portfolio will become your job search bible-- not to mention that it looks very impressive to recruiters and hiring managers.

My second suggestion is to conduct some research into temp agencies in your area. There are some specifically for medical jobs. If you need "experience", this is the best way for a potential employer to see how you perform on the job. You'll keep your skills current, gain confidence, and stand a better chance of being hired.

Not completely true... I am a very educated person and I am still looking for a job; it's been about one year since I graduated. There are always going to be exceptions to the rule, but since the economy is so bad employers don't want to take the time to orient a recent grad.
