Discouraged CPC-A! Please Help!

  1. Question
    Medical Coding Books
    Thanks everybody! I'm still trying! I'm curious if anybody knows anything about this online application systems? I recently read that some systems you need to have certain words or they won't be forwarded to an actually person to review. I applied to three different positions at a local hospital and within a half an hour they changed to that I wasn't accepted for an interview! Is that even enough time for HR to look over all three jobs and my application/resume/etc.! Just wondering if I would be better printing out the application and sending it or going in person? Thanks!

    My organization only hires through an online application. DO NOT try to bypass that by printing out an application and going in. It's viewed as 'not following directions'. You could be disqualified automatically.

    Also, what does your resume look like? If there are any errors, misspellings, etc., or if you don't indicate what job you're applying for, if you don't fill out the application and assessments 100%, you can be disqualified for that, without even getting an interview.

    I had an opening for a CPC-A several months ago. Coding certification is a requirement. 37 people applied. Only 9 had resumes that said they were certified, so the other 28 were disqualified right off the bat. Of those 9, four spelled HIPAA wrong, three didn't want per diem (as the job indicated), and one was scheduled for an interview and cancelled at the last minute. The person I interviewed isn't going to be a good fit. So I'm putting the job on hold.

    Another perspective, I guess.
