Hi! I am currently in the process of becoming a certified medical coder in MA. I am 47 and have most of my job experience I the beauty industry..both as a cosmetologist and as a cosmetic sales manager for three different companies. I also ran my own small business as a Bridal Stylist and Consultant for quite a while. The only experience I have in the medical field is about 10 years ago I worked at an insurance company doing medical credentialing which I loved. My health is such that I can no longer physically handle the beauty industry or retail because of the ling hours and physical demands. Does anyone have any input as to how I can make my resume look great in the coding field?

I recently received my Certificate as a Certified Coding Specialist and I am having a heck of a time finding employment. Most companies I have applied for want you to have experience. Im definitely not giving up I know someone will give me a chance! Any suggestions anyone please?!
Going to graduate college soon but I can't find a job. Thinking about taking coding courses over summer.
I'm a soon to be graduate from UConn and looking at a 3.2 gpa by the time of graduation in marketing. So far I have had 1 job experience working at a jewelry store and 1 internship experience working for a web development company. I thought I was extremely employable due to being bilingual and all, but currently I'm having a really hard time landing a job in marketing so I'm looking into taking coding classes at my local community college. Is this a viable strategy? Or should I be sending my application out in mass? (I've only applied to about a dozen jobs so far but no one got back to me) Or alternatively, should I hunker down on a low paying job and work from the bottom?

Coding is a blue collar job now? I thought coding work was only done by teenaged geeks I see walking around downtown all the time wearing sneakers and hoodies. Nothing wrong with that but that's always been my image of the typical coder or tech worker. I have an interest in the field but being in my 50’s I’ve always honestly felt a little intimidated changing careers or looking for job in tech. This article is an eye opener but it doesn’t say much about senior level coders or job seekers. How difficult would it be for a 54 year old find blue collar coding job?
Anyone here has gone to college, twice actually, only to be told that you need to have 2 or 3 years in a clinical situation to get an interview? Medical Coding and Psychology...Currently tending bar and catching hell from my parents...Thank you! Mai-Ling
See my intro...I just got here, got off work and I'm beat, but my question says it all. Thank you
