I must say after reading all this I was so discourage and then hearing some of you have found jobs gave me some hope. I am almost done with course 3, however, I have paid in full up till course 5. So I have been trying to decide if I just quit or just got with it and at least try! I have decided after reading some of you have started out at on-the-mark that I am going to go for it. At least I can say I tried and didnt waste all that money hopefully then.

Thanks for all the input. I really hate that we have to find out the hard way about AHP.

Here is the skinny on the whole thing in my opinion. If you do not know someone in the business who is willing to hire you as a newbie, it is almost impossible to get a job. If you do not have 1+ past years’ experience in an acute medical job situation, it is very difficult to get hired. If you do not type 70-80 solid wpm at the least, your going to struggle to even come close to making minimum wage. It will only be by luck, right place at the right time, if you get a job as a newbie. There is no way to pass the on-line tests without having previous expierence. Do your research. Search other MT sites. Even experienced transcribers cannot pass some of these tests. We were not readied for these tests or even the world of transcribing. I am taking this as an expensive lesson, but at least I have the certificate. It looks nice on a resume. I have applied for every single job posting that I can. I have sent out multiple resumes to all the on-line companies. I graduated in July, after taking nine months to complete the course and still have nothing to show for it. I have mailed my resume to all the local hospitals and Dr.’s offices. Guess what? Nothing. They do not hire newbies. I am not a slack. I work hard and I am not afraid of hours. This was a dream to work at home for a supplement to our income. It is not working out for me. So I have decided to at least make sure to help anyone who needs help on their tests. Hopefully everyone gets their certificate so that they have something to show for their hard work and money.

Pay it forward. If you got help from here, then come back and give help.

I can relate. I got my certificate in December 2011. I've applied to local hospitals, doctors offices and I've submitted my resume to several online sites, and taken online tests. Nothing. Have you ever heard of jobcircle.com. I applied for an MT opening at Johnson Medical Group through this site - I had to join the jobcircle site first. They wanted fees to make my resume available to lots of sites. Also, it said that there would be a fee of $295 for books and materials if I got the job. Is this a con?

Hi kimmiejj--you should not have to pay any money to get a job. If you are going to be an employee, the employer has to furnish the tools and equipment you need to do the work.

Some of these companies prey on people who have been looking for work for a long time. I would suggest that you skip that one.

There is another company out there who does something similar--"hires" you (not even sure if they pay you) after you buy their $400 software and tell you when you are up to speed you will be permanently hired. What they don't tell you is that no one gets up to speed--not even MTs with lots of experience. They have changed their name several times so I don't know what it is now.

Just my opinion--avoid like the plague!

I'm on the last course and I was investigating. I put some resumes in just for voluntary work and no luck. They do want at least a year of experience. That doesn't keep me from doing my school work.

In turn, I started a home-based business. I work that part time and I'm doing my schooling. If you're interested

This will make you money while you're waiting for a medical transcriptionish job.

Has anyone here become an RMT after completing AHP's course? Does it give you an advantage at all? Maybe that would be a way to make lack of experience look a little less pathetic?

I've completed the course, have been looking, and haven't found anything yet. I've only been looking for a month, and quite frankly, the people I've talked to directly (people who hire MTs in hospitals, owners of smaller clinics) have been remarkably unprofessional and frustrating. After talking to them in follow-up calls after hand delivering my materials, I'm glad they "aren't hiring at this time."

I've been reading through the posts and have seen InScribe and On-the-mark as two companies who hires us "no experience-ers." Has anyone had any luck with other companies?
