I am currently taking a medical billing certificate program at my local college and next am taking a medical coding certificate program there as well. I want to start applying for jobs. Is it worth doing that now or should I pass the certification tests first? I want an office job NOT stay at home one. I am a little nervous to see very few job openings out there for these professions right now. I thought this would be a good line of work since you can apply at hospitals, dr.s offices, insurance companies, etc. Now I getting scared that I'm wasting my time and money!!!
