There are not supposed to be too many jobs for MAs (or medical billers or coders) despite what those private overly priced For-profit schools proclaim. Most employers prefer applicants with at least 1-2 years experience in order to possibly get the job. Perhaps you can apply for related jobs such as medical receptionist, health information (“medical records”) clerk, office assistant, radiology file clerk or such.
