Personally, I think the bottom line is not so much the credential you may have, both CPC and CCS have their places, but whether or not you have experience. Many, many places want experience, IN ADDITON to their credential of choice. So it doesnt matter if you have one credential, or multiple, without experience employers may not be interested in you anyway. If you are looking for experience and cant find a paying job, you may want to volunteer in an office or facility, or call a billing service and explain your situation and ask at what position you can start and work your way up to coding. Just some examples of way to gain experience in the real world without having an actual position.
