Employed!

    I will be starting in my first coding job next Monday, working at an Army hospital as a civilian federal employee. After taking an online community college coding course, I took and passed the CPC exam in March on my first try. I was also offered a coding position in a local clinic which I turned down. I don't have any coding job experience, although I did a little in the medical assistant externship that I completed. I think that I was just lucky that these positions became available shortly after I passed my CPC exam, as I didn't see coding positions open in the year prior. I'm very excited about starting my first coding position.

    I wish you all the best! It's so nice to hear how a CPC-A has found a job- actually you found 2 and picked the one you wanted. Do you mind if I ask what type of coding you will be doing and why you picked one over the other.

    Again- congrats!

    you've had in your job search. I hope it will encourage newly ceritifed Coders,
    especially with the Apprentice designation.
    Good luck to you.

    I am doing coding for the ER. The position that I didn't accept was with a specialty clinic and I thought that I would have the opportunity for a greater variety of experience with the Army.
