Right before I graduated the school, I took the AAPC certified Possessional Coder exam and passed and am now looking for a job. I graduated at the top of my class with a 4.0. Now, for the past Month, I have been looking for a medical billing job around the Morris County area. I have mostly seen jobs offering $12-$13 an hour some with benefits, and some without. Before I even attended this program, I made $15 an hour working in a Gym without any college degrees. While attending this program, I was told that I could easily ask for $18 to $20 an hour as a starting salary especially because I'm certified, which I have now realized is not the case. I have also realized that being certified as a medical coder means nothing because to even do any coding I would need at least two years of experience. I paid $13,000 for the program and can't find a job that I can afford to take that would enable me to live and even pay my bills. Not only that, there are almost no jobs around where I live. Every job I have gone to is about an hour away. Is this situation normal for this area of the country, or is it just me? I would appreciate any advice someone could give me.


    Hi
    It is not just New Jersey. It is sad to say but My story is the same as yours Top of my class, passed CPC certification exam, and have at least a year experience in the field. I have been looking for work since I Graduated in 2013. I have been looking for 4 years now. In Maryland you need at least 2 to 3 years experience or they will not even look at your resume. The employees that trained me did not have their certification and I ended up training them, But still no one will hire me. The company I worked for closed down. I went from Medical Billing Specialist to Auditor in three months of the job. I hate to tell you this but we have been had! I am truly sorry and I wish you all the best out there. I just will not give up... Even though it looks bleak....
