Ever feel lost? I do right about now...I'm frustrated about money and my job right now. We just don't have enough money most of the time to cover bills, groceries, gas..etc. I feel so frustrated because I finished school in August for my medical coding certification and I'm now a Certified Coding Associate. I have gone for interviews at 5 different places now and so far no luck. They have me interview and come and take the coding test....they tell me they really like me and that I score great on the coding test....but that they can't hire me because I don't have the higher coding certification and I don't have any experience. Its soooooo frustrating! I went to school and spent all this time and money to do this and I can't get a job! And I need a job paying more money and more hours! I love the fact that I get to spend more time with my kids since I don't work full time....but we just can not afford it. Geeze, it's been almost 11 months now since I've finished school for this...I thought by now we would be doing a little better and instead we are at our worst.
I did go for an interview yesterday at a doctor's office for a coding/billing position. A good friend of mine works there and recommend me to him. I appreciate her doing that so much! And I really, really like the doctor. He's a very nice and caring doctor. I would absolutely love to get this job because its a great work environment, more pay and more hours. But I'm so afraid to get my hopes up because I have the past 4 times and had nothing come of it. The doctor said he has a few more people he needs to interview and will let me know by the end of next week. I pray that he liked me and will trust my friend that I would do a good job. I just need someone to give me a shot and let me show them that I can do it and I can do a great job! So I'm hoping that my 4th of July will be extra special with news that I'm offered a new job. I would really, really miss my coworkers I have now...but I can't stay there forever. I will be sure to pop in on them every now and then.
There are other issues going on too...lots of things weighing on my mind. I don't know what the best decision is in my situation....but I'm hoping that Scott and I can come to the right one.
Please just keep me in your thoughts right now....Just going through a really tough spot. Thanks for reading this!
