    I am confused. You say you are currently working in the medical field and work for six providers. Yet you also state no one will give you an opportunity. If you are currently employed in the medical field then stay there and work up in that organization. Or did I miss something?

    What do you do for the six providers? And have you asked them if you could shadow the current coder, or help out in that regard? I think that might be a good way to get in.

    What type of organization do you currently work for?? I know a lot of places want experinced coders but 10 years seems a bit much.

    Kind of strange to here something like this. Usually its much more easier to get the job if you are already in the company. Especially if you just got sertified. You proved your knowledge. I dont think 10 years of experience will make a big difference in our days when everything is changing so fast.
