I have passed my Cpc exam coming up on 2 yrs this December, and have not been able to find a job in any aspect of the medical field let alone a coding job in a physicians office. I live in Southern California, and I am constantly buying the paper everyday and looking online for positions ANY positions within the medical field. If anyone can offer some advice as wear to look it sure would be appreciated. Thanks

Coding positions

I passed my exam in October of 2011 and I am still looking too. I have gotten a few calls back but I also have the billing, claims and collections experience, even with that employers would like for someone to have that hands on coding experience. My suggestion would be to volunteer your time, contact local hospitals in your area they often have internships. If you went from another field into medical/coding it is going to take sometime for physicians /facilities to even consider hiring you. With that said be patient and consider volunteering...

Have you looked on the Contexo site? Someone at work looked at it yesterday and saw there were about 1200 jobs advertised (not all coding obviously).
Good luck.

Try these sites: Dig4Jobs.com and Jobseeker.com. I have used key words like: Coder, Medical records Tech and Clerk. They usually pull up various jobs for medical positions. Of course you will need to put in your state, city, zip to narrow down the search regions.
Hope this helps.....

Me too...

I passed in September of 2010. I've had many interviews, but no luck. I saw a posting for a CPC-A type job in New Hampshire, but it's only PER DIEM. I need to earn money and I can't do anything less than FULL TIME. Are there any FULL TIME coding jobs for us?

:confused:

Can't volunteer time...

They don't work at night and weekends. That's my Catch 22. How do you get experience, if no one will hire you, because of your LACK of experience.
