I graduated as a Medical Coding Specialist in December, 2010. I graduated with a 4.0, and I passed my certification exam the first time. I have no medical/healthcare or office experience, so how do I get a position as a Coder? Employers want someone with at least 1 year experience in a medical setting, but the certification is not required. I have tried to participate in Project X-tern, but there are none in my area. Can anyone assist me in aquiring more experience or a job?
