I have been looking for work as a medical assistant for 4 months now. I've sent my resume to every hospital, clinic, doctor's office that I can think of and still no luck. What am I doing wrong? I am starting to get discouraged. Does anyone know of anyplace in the Philadelphia area that is hiring medical assistants with less than one year of experience? Every place seems to want people with at least a year of experience. How am I supposed to get experience without getting my first job?

I went to school and graduated in 2006. I
then went to work for a temp. agency to get job experience. The Doc's there let me work as a float which enabled me to learn and experience a lot of internal workings of a Doctor's office. The kind of stuff you don't think of when you think of becoming a Medical Assistant. I worked their for 8 Mos. then the practice was bought out and they brought in their own staff. I was unemployed for 6 wks. But the stuff I learned in that office looks great on a resume. I'm currently
only working part time now. and concentrating on my
boards. Good luck and keep your chin up it will get better.

Yeah, to get your foot in the door you usually got to start as relief or float and then you can work your way in internally. All the people I know from school that is how they got their first job--or they got it through their extern site. Good Luck!!

I to have recently finished a 6 month coarse in medical assistant; I have tried staffing companies here in South Carolina and still no luck. Please any one that needs a medical assitant in the Charleston, SC area. I am willing to grow with the company and also learn more to what I already know.
Ive been looking for work for about 3 and half months and no sucess yet.
I am willing to float, to gain that years experience, because alot of companies ask you to have experience working in a office before you come to them, but what if you just got out of school. Then what ?

I just graduated from Kaplan College and I didn't get hired off my extern site. I'm a little disappointed but, what can I say the Doctor wasn't hiring. I want to learn more. I want to get more experience. I think I might have to just get more education in my pocket as a CNA, LVN, or maybe RN. Pray for me. Thank You.

I'm in the San Joaquin County if you have any information for me my email is moniquevelasquez125@hotmail.com
please comment or give me advice.

Contact Dr. Jeffrey Lindenbaum, I worked for him for many years. He is truly the best out there. I was one of his Clinical Office Managers when he was in Bensalem, Pa. He is now in Oxford Valley.

I was told by him years ago "forget what you learned in school, you're gonna learn the right way!!!" And ....he was right.

call the office, the only thing you can do is try. he's in the makefield executive quarters. you will have to call information for his number. this site won't allow me to post his phone number.

try all of the local hospitals also. an MA can work in any area of the health field.
best of luck, sue

You are so right, I have been trying for years now and have had no luck. I have tried, thank goodness I still have secretarial skills and others. I would rather be a nurse instead of being treated so badly.

Hi there!

I was just wondering if you have found anything in the medical assisting field yet. The only reason I ask is that my husband is taking classes at Kaplan right now and I was wondering if you might have any advise from your experience/search.

Thanks!

I do understand your frustration I recently graduated in the same field Medical Assistant in houston, TX and its been 4months and the demand is 1yr or bilingual only this is ridiculous!! Our school is falsely advertising they assist with job placement upon graduation they should have linked with companies that hire students with less than a year training , but dont be discourage kepp on looking and considered volunteering thats one way you can continue to utilize your clinical skills and be recognized for your knowledge. Good Luck
