    hi my name is tameesha I graduated in 2010 with an Associates degree in medical assisting. After I graduated I wasn't able to start working right away because I had just had a baby. once I was able to go back to work I kept applying for medical assisting jobs but had no luck. I went on many interviews but nobody would give me a chance. everybody wants u to be fresh out of school and the worst part is they ask for a year to three years of experience just to get considered. its really frustrating because how can u gain experience if people wont give you a chance to show what u are capable of doing. basically I would love to work doing what I went to school for but instead I have to take other jobs that I don't really want to do just so I can support my kids. I feel like I went to school for nothing jobs want you to have degrees I have one and that's still not enough. if there is anybody out there willing to give me a chance I would appreciate it.
    you can email me at shataye76@yahoo.com

    I graduated in 2010, externship site did not hire me. I had my career counselor help me to find a job, but they were having bad luck finding a job for me as well. I have 2 children that I need to provide for. If anyone has an idea of how to get a Medical Assistant job, let me know!

    Even at my externship, I couldnt get a job there. I feel it was a waste of my time and money to get my medical assisting certificate.

    It is very frustrating. Like you quin0501 I did the training and aced my externship, and yet I'm having the same problem. Everyone wants a candidate with one, two, and three years experience, but no one is willing to give you a chance.

    Well I don't know what is going WRONG for me. I did the training/schooling, i ACE'D my externship, good looking resume, i keep in touch with my recruiters at school and I am NOT HAVING ANY KIND OF LUCK. Come this August, I would have graduated a year ago and still has not worked in my field (or any other field). This is SOOOO FRUSTRATING!!
