I am looking for a job in the medical field as a Medical Receptionist.

It is very hard to find a job in that field because mnost people are looking for someone who has experience. How do I get the experience if I can't get the job? I am still in school, I have at least four months left. Please help.

  • Take the medical classes such as medical insurance, terminology and office procedures. Make sure you have computer knowledge. Thats what I did and was lucky enough to get a job at a Dialysis clinic less than a mile from my home. Unfortunately these days without experience you need luck. Many places will hire you with this and teach you any software they use.
    Good Luck!
