Debbiein Janesville, Illinois said: Wendy,
What is an LNA ? I graduated in May 2006. I have done almost 150 applications and Resume's and still no job.

I think it is a nurses aide. I have found out that the nurses aide and home health aide programs are shorter (sometimes a few weeks) and a lot cheaper. I am hearing of some places hiring aides to fill MA and phlebotomy jobs,and I am kicking myself for going to school for 9 months and taking out a loan. I admire aides but I don't want to be one but neither do I want to be constantly losing out on jobs that I applied for either.

yesenia in Los Angeles, California said: not to be critical honey, you really need to practice your spelling. A lot of jobs make you do spelling and alphabetizing test before hire. If you want to work in the medical field it is so important for documentation, and if anything ever goes to court.

I totally agree. I was just going to say that if your posts are anything like your applications and resumes it is easy to see why you are not getting hired. The spelling and typing errors here are horrible. I have been an MA since 2002 and I have been at home raising my kids since I finished my externship. I just decided in the last few months to go back to work and I got a great job within last 2 months. I make 10.50 an hour in an OBGYN office and the people I work for are AMAZING. Looking for a job is a full time job. You have to put the time and effort into it. Good Luck.

I graduated from my MA course (900 hr. plus 180 hrs of externship) last June and passed my certification with a 99%. The course was $4800, but with grants I only had to pay half that. I got pregnant towards the end of the school year and decided not to look for work until after the baby was born. The Dr. I did my externship for happened to be at the hospital for a newborn exam while I was there, and she offered me a job whenever I was ready to start working! I've been there a few months now and I absolutely love it! It's a 2 Dr. practice and I get to draw blood, do EKG's, neurometrics, bone density scans, assist with paps and minor surgeries and numerous other things. I just wish it payed what we're worth. If we can do almost anything an LPN can do, why aren't we paid accordingly? I started at $8.75/hr. :-( There are great benefits though, which helps.

How does everybody feel when they look over the other posts on these forums and see that this is a nationwide problem,that scores of other trained and certified MAs are not fnding anything? Does it make you feel better to know that it's not just you or does it cause even more discouragement? How about if you are looking at an MA website (like "Advanced Medical Assistant") and see on their message board a lot of posts about how there ARE jobs out there and that having a lot of negativity about not getting one sends out "bad vibes"? To me,I think that it isn't fair to almost blame someone who is having trouble obtaining what they were almost promised in the end,or at least what they are entitled to have( a JOB) ;and that it's only human nature to feel bitterness and yes,NEGATIVITY,to be struggling like this when we shouldn't have to be. Those who
got a job quickly don't realize what a blow to self worth this all is.

It's unbelievable because I thought me and my 4 friends who also graduate from school as a medical assistant, can't find jobs either. We figured we are getting our AS Degree so someone has to hire us, but nothing, and my loan is over 10 thousand. Every place i went to want experience, but im saying if no one hire me i will never have the paid experience. IM SO MAD

I hear you. Out of my class of 11,maybe 3 are working as MAs. Maybe. One I know for sure. The others gave up or are still butting their heads against a wall. Something has to be done about this "no experience" excuse,because a lot of these places that use it WILL hire in someone with hardly any-like the ones who did their externships there.
All current MA students need to talk about this extensively with their school's career coordinator,in class. Don't assume you will easily find a job. Some do but I don't think that is the norm.
I ended classes over a year ago and I finally swallowed my pride and have been trying to contact my school's career person,hoping he can help me. When I finally get hold of him,he is getting an earful. Based on what I have learned over the past year,these schools are putting out snow jobs.

Yeah, I don't think it's the norm to get hired so easily. Going into the course they were always saying how in demand MA's are and we'll never have trouble finding work. There was also a wait list a mile long to get into the class at all! I was afraid to NOT take the job when it was offered to me for fear of never finding another one. lol

I also heard that "in demand" and "fastest growing field" stuff. We had so many papers handed out to us from the US Dept. of Labor,it was almost like they were trying to back up what they were feeding us. We were also told that the jobs never start out below $10 an hour(hah!) but never what to do if we keep running into the problem of being told the "lack of experience" excuse.
What these schools/programs should be teaching is how to aggressively look for a job,and to strongly advise students to take the first one offered,even if it is low wages and far away, and stick it out for at least 6 months. They need to stop sugar coating this field and be more blunt about it. Too many students are getting screwed.

Oh yeah. We were told what excellent pay we would be getting. One girl from my class got a job starting at $11, but she is the highest paid out of all of us. You've really got to love doing this or you might as well go get a job at Walmart and make the same amount of money. lol

Tami-
I don't think it is my resume format,I got professional help with that. But would you or ANYONE happen to know just what are HR people LOOKING for when they see a resume,and could you tell the whole board what it is? Are they looking to see if the applicant is currently working in some form of medical setting,or working at all,or how long was their last job,or if they have had customer service experience,or has worked as a volunteer somewhere? It's no secret that it helps to know the right people yet my class was told to leave references off resume-is that true? Because otherwise we could use our own physicians as a reference,after getting their permission.
What about cover letters? I have read that they are extremely important,and that many hiring people will ignore a resume without one. But what are the right things to put in them? Should it be all business-like,professional sounding,or can you enter a little personal information-such as the fact that you are having difficulty in obtaining a position due to the lack of experience and would really like to be given a chance. Or does that sound too needy? Just what IS the right thing to say?

And Kayla-good luck on the exam next week. What agency is it through?

I graduated in December 2006, since then i have been sending in resume's, to hospitals and clinics it is very frustrating, because no one ever gets back to me. Most employers want 1-2years experience. How do i get the experience if no one will hire me! Even the medical staffing agencys want 1-2years experience. I am starting to wonder if i chose the right field. i have also been told by some of my old classmates that some places want to start you at entry level pay 8.50 for example. The job i have now pays 12.oo an hour.

I am sorry you guys are not living in columbus georgia. I finished school march 2007 and I got 4 job offers and I am working and they started me off with $10 per hour and when I get certified they will increase it 14 of us finished from our class and 90% of us are working. I just checked my email and my instructor emails us with jobs. Medical Assistant jobs are here in Columbus, Georgia like crazy.
Sorry dont give up just hang on in there it will get better. This is a great profession

Something that most of us are not told in our programs is how it seems to be a regional problem if you have trouble finding a job. Well,of course they are not going to admit that. It also helps to have a commited job coordinator who actually works hard at finding the jobs and getting the students placed in them. Many schools have someone who just faxes the student's resumes to places which is what they can do themselves. These types of workers should be reported to the school director as being lazy. The current career guy at my old school told me that he is going to job sites and talking with the ones in charge. But I have to wonder if he is only trying to help the current crop of recent grads,and not ones from months or a year ago.
He also told me that he has raised the job placement level to 80%. But then I found out that I was in that category and I am not even working anymore and I found that temp job on my own,yet the school is taking the credit for it. Geez.

Here is the trick. You already went to school for medical assisting and that lasted for about a year. So in fact you already have a years experience. You have drawn alot of blood and have done alot of vitals. So just be confident when you apply and express what you have already done.

A teacher told me "It's not so much the skills you have that gets you the job but how you sell yourself", so really the trick is to get the interviews so that you CAN express yourself and what you have done and what you can do. But what if you can't get the interviews? So many people are applying and not hearing anything at all. What should be done then-call and point blankly ask for an interview? Does that ever work?

You actually have to take continuing education classes EVERY year. Also, every 5 years you have to be RE-CERTIFIED. I am going to school right now to become a CMA so I know!! I hope this helps!! Also, are you national certified or did you just receive your certificate? You should visit American Associate of Medical Assistant(AAMA) website...Google it.

You are still a MA. If you got a national certification originally, you needed to renew that every year. You don't need to take the MA course again, but if you want to be a CMA you need to find out when you can take the exam.

I have been trying to figure it out also. Why do some in a graduating class find jobs and others don't? The ones that do weren't necessarily the best students and the ones who don't could have gotten all As and did well on their externships. I have all sorts of theories-luck,the area where you live,age and looks,an impressive resume (great work history),a recognizable last name to the person hiring,being at the right place at the right time (back to the luck factor),etc. It still all boils down to too many gifted,well educated,anxious-to-work MAs,certified or not (what about all those that DON'T ever get certified and still get the jobs?) who are having so much difficulty in finding something.

I really like getting to know the patients and talking to them. There are some really great people out there you'd never get a chance to talk to any other time. I like feeling that I'm doing something that matters. My favorite aspect of my job is phlebotomy and helping with minor surgical procedures.
