    I appreciate the honesty in this article for it is truly hard out here as a newly graduate to find any experience. I have taken the time to become certfied in three areas such as CPC-H, CPC, and CCA and can not find any work. Yes, she is right most companies would like for you have 2-3 years of experience when applying for a job but I am challenge on concept of gaining any experience. I think I have applied a every temp service in Georgia as well as every hospital…amazingly hard to get in door. Again, I appreciate the article and I will keep pressing on….never giving up.
