    Yeah… I’d like to know where the jobs are. I lost my job in 2008 and luckily found a part time job to keep me afloat. However, I have since been laid of from that job. I knew something had to change so I went back to school for a career in healthcare. For the past 5 months I have been getting my resume out there and applying to jobs without any bites. Just yesterday, I FINALLY get a call…. from a recruiter who saw my resume but, doesn’t have any openings in the healthcare field that I want. So now I am in the position of possibly having to take a job in a different field just to pay the bills until a job that I actually want becomes available. Talk about unfair… to take a job and then quit when something better comes along. Unfortunately, it is a vicious cycle a lot of us find ourselves in.

    According to the article “Career Pro’s Job Market is stronger than most think” Although the recession is said to be over most Americans are still feeling the pinch of the recession. It states that the job market has made great strides over the past 12 months. However, most families are feeling the after math of the recession with their homes and job. I am happy that I choose a career in the medical field. Although nothing is guaranteed, I do feel that there is a greater sense of security in the medical field. I feel that I made a great choice in choosing to become a medical biller and coder.
