I have a BS of science in public health and have been in the medical field for 7 years. I am recently a new mom to an 18 month old and I really want to look into doing some work from home doing medical transcription. I know that medical transciption is very different in terms of what I've been doing in the field but, i am interested. My main question i have is, can a new grad of the program actually get a job afterwards with no experience? I have been researching this option for quite a while and it seems that not many people are having luck finding jobs after graduating despite all the claims that this field "is expected to grow by as much as 13% by 2018" from the u.s. department of labor stats.
I just want the honest truth before I sink money into this option.
I've been able to see some really old threads on this site about women here who are successfully transcribing from home. However, I haven't seen anyone post anything in the past few years. I am also looking into this and have been collecting data. I'll be curious to see if anyone resonds.
Well, this was two years ago, but I was able to find a job with no experience and I know there are some companies who hire without experience. Check out the forums (particularly the graduate forums) on Career Step for lots of helpful advice and companies who hire newbies!
