I have worked in the medical field for 20+ years now. I started in working at a hospital in Minneapolis, Mn. as an Admitting Clerk for 10 years then moved to the Business Office for 5 years. Then we moved out of town and I stayed home for a while with our child until she graduated from high school. Went to work in a Clinic Bus. Office for 3 years & was laid off Feb. 2011. I am 54 yrs. old and cannot find a job doing what I enjoy doing. Can't even get a job as a receptionist. I do have a suggestion for those of you who want your careers in the medical field, while looking for that job, do what I am doing and volunteer at a Hospital or nursing home near you. I have been volunteering for 3 weeks now at our hospital and have an interview already. (At this hospital). Also have faith in the lord. He always provides. Not right away, so be patient.
