I haven't gotten my coding certification yet (I'm still studying and reviewing on my own), but I do have an AAS degree in Medical Office Admin. Assisting.. It is frustrating. I was hired at a cardiology clinic in East Texas last August. But, like you, a bunch of us were laid off due to the economy. I'd like to get a job in a medical billing office or department (in East Texas, preferably Tyler, TX) working closely with a medical coder with the possibility of practicing some coding. I'm still looking off and on while performing self-study for the certification exam.
But I can image how hard it is to find work to keep your knowledge in practice. I hope you do find something.. bless your heart. To have the knowledge and the credentials and unable to land a job because you don't have the experience. How do they expect us to have experience if they don't hire.. I'd tell them that you just became certified and would like to prove your knowledge to them on a trial basis. Or have you already done that?
