Question by Jazmin: Medical Assistant is it a good job?
I have been at university for 3 years and want to go back to community college to get a degree in medical assisting. or health information management to become registered. I know the pay for medical assisting isn’t the best but i love helping people and would like to have a certificate where their is stable work and good benefits. Can medical assistants and RHIT please give me some feedback. Thank you
Also how is the pay for each of these careers and can i expect employment in the Seattle and Portland areas?

I think that being a Medical Assistant is very rewarding. Many people say the pay is crappy, but with any entry level job, you will need to prove yourself to your employer to move up the ladder. I am a MA and I love my job. I have been working in this field for 6 years. I started at 8.00hr. and now I’m at 14.00hr. I think that it’s a great job. 🙂
