    AAPC: Back to School
    I just graduated with a degree in billing and coding, got my CPC-A and CCA certifications, and am taking the AAPC course to remove my apprenticeship status. I have applied to over 100 jobs, unfortunately they all require experiance. How can I get started in this field, any suggestions? Lynn

    Default Getting a Job

    My best suggestion would be to apply for jobs with exposure to coding, such as medical records clerk, receptionist, or data (charge) entry. Get to know and work with the coders to learn as much as you can. It won't be your dream job, but you will get a foot in the door.

    Question Trying to get my foot in the door

    I'm trying to get my foot in the door. Medical temp jobs are also a good way to get in. That way you can get experience and decide if the company is right for you.

    I thought about the program to remove the "A". Out of money.

    Also concentrating on the Xtern Program to get experience. No pay, but not finding anything else.

    Problem: I'm in Portland, Oregon. No companies close by. AAPC says you can talk to companies about joining.

    Anybody had experience with this? What are your thoughts?

    I am in the same situation as you. No any luck for a CPC-A with no experience. Guess just have to keep on trying to apply and apply.....
