Thread: Frustrated new CPC-A asking for advice

    AAPC: Back to School
    p.s. Books that I found to be useful – AHIMA’s clinical coding workout.
    From my own personal experience most employers require at least a RHIT to get your foot in the door. What a huge difference between an approved AHIMA school and the CPC certification. I find the resources listed on AHIMA 100% more useful than the AAPC.

    Unfortunately, as with any industry, it is easier to get a job with experience. Have you tried applying for data entry or customer service positions to get your foot in the door? Does the college in which you are attending offer a career placement service that could assist you?
