Answer by jannsody
Please look elsewhere than everest which is one of those online, for-profit schools (such as penn foster, capella, everest, university of phoenix, career step, devry, sanford brown, US career, ashworth, remington, argosy, stratford career, ITT tech, walden, ashford, remington and others) and the IL school which sounds like one of those private $ $ career/tech schools 🙂
As for MA (and medical biller or coder), unfortunately, there aren’t supposed to be too many jobs despite what the private expensive schools proclaim. The numerous training programs available have left the field saturated. Most MAs have also said how frustrating it is that most employers prefer applicants with 1-2 years experience in the field to possibly get the job.
If still interested in the field, please only consider the county vo-tech school or community college as long as the Program is Accredited within the industry.
With schooling, please do steer clear of those online, for-profit schools such as the ones mentioned earlier in the post (and course credits may Not transfer): http://www.ripoffreport.com and can type into search.
For general career info: http://www.bls.gov/oco and can type into search.
