    i would recommend posting your resume at monster and careerbuilder, also apply at agency to do contract work for either billing or medical record, take their test you never know if you pass their internal test you might land yourself a coding job.

    Dont be discourage if the jobs pays peanuts, is your stepping stone to move on.. I started as an extern and got hired after a few a months.. it just takes time and patience, may also need to take a step back to move forward... i wish you all good luck there is alot of work out there you just have to go out there and find it, apply for everything and anything in the medical field..

    I am in the situation. I graduated last year (Aug.); but needed knee surgery right after, so I had to wait til January to start job hunting. Pardon my French, but it really pisses that every place requires experience, plus Practice Management's Project Xtern program is ridiculous. I am really frustrated by this. It is totally unfair that they do this.

    Yikes. I'm sorry you are frustrated about your situation. I'm sure that the Project Xternship varies from location to location; in some areas it is quite successful. I encourage you to continue to look for work. You're right...life is unfair sometimes, but it can be rewarding if you point yourself in a promising direction and try to stay positive.

    By the way, I'm French (Canadian) by heritage, and I really do object to your unprofessional language on the AAPC board. Please try to maintain a high standard when posting in all of these threads, because anything that you say here may be read by a potential employer. Thank you.
