I graduated from AHP at the first of the year, received my diploma dated January 4, 2012.
I too, am looking for work. Am finding the same issues as daniger is: Most places require at least one year of experience & the fact that AHP is not accredited by AHDI, is not helping either. Of course that was not brought up at the seminar. Figured out that I did not do enough research on schools B4 I started with AHP. I am not going to quit looking, just am practicing my typing, trying to improve my speed and reviewing dictation from school, so my "ears" do not forget how to "hear".
Good luck to all that are out there searching for jobs. Keep us posted. Have a good evening.
