Mid career switches...?
I just saw my alma mater - Carnegie Mellon - is hosting a webinar on mid-career changes. It appears free , and you don't need be an alum to participate Sounds interesting so heres the link for anyone in this boat. http://www.alumni.cmu.edu/s/1410/alumni/index-social.aspx?sid=1410&gid=1&pgid=5975&cid=9556&ecid=9556&crid=0&calpgid=13&calcid=664
Starting over after a long time off due to health to get into coding or records
Hello all. I have been off work due to health issues for about 6 years now. I'm in my 40's, back in school to get my certificate for medical records technician/professional medical coding specialist. I have read that most of the time to get into the field one needs to take a reception job, or just something to get a foot in the door. Admittedly, I have never had to look hard for jobs in the past and this is my first time needing a resume, cover letter, etc.. So this is all new to me. I have a couple of long breaks over the last 15 years or so that I list on my resume as a caregiver, since I was home with my kids. I have put out countless resumes, tweaking it as I get feedback, for the specific job, and just to make it a little cleaner. I am also looking for an internship that I need to complete my program, but have no bites as of yet. Any advice would be great. Thank you in advance.
What do you think about this?
I have an opportunity with a great company that has great mobility down the line. The position I would start at is not my ideal position but down the line I could end up in sort of a dream job with the great company. Would you take the position or stay with an OK company in a position I like more but has little mobility down the line?
I've been applying to a lot of jobs on line customer service , receptionist , call center you name it! But I only seem to get calls from marketing advertising companies. I'm not sure what that entails ? My question is are these good legitimate careers?
