    Medical Coding Books
    I really feel like my resume, along with my lack of experience is a hindrance to me even landing an interview. I am certified coder. In addition to my certification, during my externship, I also checked in patients, created, pulled, and filed patients charts. What do I need my resume to say to make me attractive to perspective employers?

    "during my externship, I also checked in patients, created, pulled, and filed patients charts. "...No, no, no...You have "medical front-office experience, including patient relations, insurance verification, and medical record maintenance."
    You wish to expand your knowledge in healthcare administration, by gaining additional hands-on experience doing ___(skills of job you're applying for)__, alongside the knowledgable professionals at ___(Company name)___, because you know that those skills are crucial to your long-term goal, of one day (managing a practice/being a consultant/becoming a CEO/etc.).

    Stay vague on the lengths of time you've been in the field - if they want to know, they can ask you at your interview, after they've already decided they like you, because you came dressed professionally.
    At that point, you can explain that although you may lack tenure, you learn quickly, and have a desire to gain as much expertise as possible, from anyone who's willing to teach you.
