    the only advice I have is to maybe start somewhere else in the medical field, such as medical records, medical data entry or billing.

    Unfortunately the coding field is over saturated, and the schools are not very good about informing students of the difficulty of new students getting jobs or experience.

    I started out as front desk, I volunteered to help out our coding/billing dept, I gained knowledge and experience that I was able to leverage into a data entry job, then got my certification and that is how I got my current coding job.

    Don't give up, this really is a great field.

    Default Finding employment as a new coder

    I started a medical records clerk 15 years ago and slowly made my way up to billing and coding. Even as a front desk person you will get experience as all off the facets to insurance, codes, and billing. Good luck.
