Working hard always pays off, and graduating is even better. Employers are more interested in meeting me now that I’ve completed a healthcare documentation program. I had success at the job fair and it brought my spirits up while I continue to search for a new job. I’ve even been scouted via my professional online accounts. I’ll explain everything.
2016 FALL JOB FAIR
* KRH- Hospital: I’ve been applying here, and I told them which positions are on my application history. They suggested I also apply for another position and to go into their office the following week. I left a resume with the recruiter and when I got home, I emailed her with more details. I hope to hear back soon because they have several positions perfect for me.
* SCRIBEAMERICA- Scribe: I’ve seen this position before and it seems very fun, but I’ve never applied to it. I spoke to the individuals at the booth and they both thought I should definitely apply. I left a resume with them and they said I’m at the top of the list for qualified candidates. I was so excited. I would love to be a medical scribe! I applied to the scribe position first thing the following morning. And then I emailed the woman who referred me to let her know my application was in.
* FLATHEAD INDUSTRIES- Disability Services: This company has had several administration jobs available and I’ve always been tempted to apply to them. I spoke to the hiring manager to ask exactly what is all involved in the company. I didn’t leave a resume or apply because they don’t hire or utilize the skills of a healthcare document specialist.
PROFESSIONAL ONLINE ACCOUNTS
About a month ago, a company contacted me for a Medical Transcription position. They got my information from my LinkedIn account. However, I didn’t qualify for that position because I don’t have five years experience. More recently, a local company found my resume on Indeed.com and they emailed me about a position as a Medical Receptionist. I called and left a message. I should hear back from them next week, or maybe I will just bring in my resume and meet the person who sent me the notification.
STUDENT INFORMATION RELEASE
If I really want someone to see my school account and check out my grades, I sign and fill out APPENDIX C from the Student Catalog. I turn it in to the school and then I let the hiring manager know they have my permission to specifically look into my account at AHP.
If you’re struggling in your lessons, don’t give up on yourself. I felt the beginning and end of the program was easier to get through because either 1) it was the beginning, fun and easy or 2) it was the end and I wanted to finish so badly. The middle part, the coding lessons, were tough to get through because they were challenging and sometimes I felt lost or stuck in the middle. But I followed my plan, worked my way through, and I’m more than glad to be a graduate of At-Home Profession’s Healthcare Documentation program. Do you have any job fairs going on in your area? You must go!
