this forum is from real medical assistants who can’t find jobs: http://www.indeed.com/forum/job/medical-assistant/can-t-find-job-medical-assisntat-help-please/t32322
the problem they say is due to lack of experience. employers apparently want at least 2 years of experience and are not willing to hire new grads. the medical assistant field is SATURATED! as a clinical medical assistant you will basically be taking vitals and drawing blood. depending on where you work, you may also have to work in the front office too where you will do paperwork, answer phones, etc. if you are thinking about being a nurse, then think again. the nursing field is SATURATED too. when the economy when down the drain everyone went back to school for a “recession proof” job- nursing. now employers only hire nurses who have at least 2 years experience as well. read this forum too: http://www.indeed.com/forum/job/nurse-rn/New-Graduate-Nurse/t154339 it is from real nurses who just graduated and cannot find jobs. some have a 4.0 gpa and a bachelor’s degree and still can’t find jobs. become a doctor since there is a shortage of them and it’s pretty much a guaranteed job for life or choose a different field other than the healthcare field.
