Where to spend your time looking for Medical Billing Coding Jobs. Learn what the highest rated online job sites are for a Medical Billing and Coding Jobs.
Looking for medical billing coding jobs or medical coding job opportunities?
A good place to start is the local classified listings – online classified is probably the easiest. Although local newspapers aren’t the only source in searching for medical coding and billing jobs like there used to be, they are a good starting point when looking locally. Don’t forget CraigsList – many employers are discovering this is a great way to advertise medical coding and billing jobs because it’s free, quick, and easy.
According to a recent CNNMoney article, most people looking for a job look in a variety of different sites. The average web sites used by most job hunters is 5.
For larger employers such as hospitals, large practices, and medical research facilities, you’ll want to go directly to the web site to see if they list jobs on their site. But it really helps to have someone you know on the inside pulling for you (and looking out for your resume) at these larger employers.
Most Popular Web Sites
There’s two types of online job sites – general purpose job boards catering to a wide variety of professions, industries and locations. General purpose sites are CareerBuilder, Monster, or Yahoo! HotJobs. In the latest survey by Weddle’s which prints a guide to internet job hunting, the most popular job sites are:
- HotJobs (Yahoo!)
Indeed – The Best Site
After trying several online jobs sites to search for a medical billing and coding job, I really appreciated Indeed Jobs site. It’s one of the best sites to search for online medical billing jobs. They compile job listings from thousands of different website sources.
Give it a try on our Medical Billing and Coding Jobs page:
Then there are niche sites which cater more towards a particular field, industry, or location. The most popular niche sites geared to Health Care are:
- HealthEcareers Network
I really didn’t find a lot of medical billing coding jobs on the niche sites. They seemed to be geared more towards doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and other highly skilled fields.
Online sites have a lot of tools to assist in the job search like advice, example resume’s, interview preparation. They allow you to set up a profile and receive email notification when there’s there’s an opening that matches your criteria. Monster even offers resume writing and interview coaching services for a fee.
I notice there’s a lot of jobs listed in both the local and online boards for temp and hiring agencies. What an employer will do sometimes is have the employment agency screen potential applicants and present the most qualified.
A lot of job openings don’t even get posted online. That’s why its so important to network and speak with as many people as possible. Every year, a number of job openings are filled even before they can be advertised.
Your friends, relatives, ex-coworkers, and neighbors may have inside information about a vacancy for the right job. If there is a certain hospital or physicians office you want to work for, try to get to know someone who works there.
Most of the people that I have hired for my Medical Billing business have not been through ads or postings, but from friends and referrals. Knowing that an employee is trustworthy counts for a lot.
