I started with my CPC-A doing documentation review due to my experience working with physicians as a medical secretary. It was my ability to work with doctors that got my foot in the door. But I have seen others in our A/R department start as payment posters, etc. who got their certification and totally by passed me due to their A/R experience. I think the key is to focus on finding a good organization and get your foot in the door doing anything. Establish yourself as a good employee and someone people want to work with and you will be surprised at how others will champion you and network for you to get you were you want to go.
You gotta have a job anyway, right? So, start out doing SOMETHING and let it lead you were you want to go. You can't stear a parked car. Get in there and get to work!
