I recently took the medical billing and coding course at the local community college and did quite well, and am waiting to take my CPC exam.
However, what alarmed me was when I went to the first local chapter meeting, there were about 60 members, with 59 women and 1 man ( me ) there.
Now I'm concerned that whether my grades were good, I have my CPC, i still may not get hired because I won't be a " fit " if 99% of the coders are women.
Did i waste my time, money and effort learning a career that I dont have a hope of getting hired into? I've already been told by some HR people on the sly that how you fit into the department is a big issue.
