Daphne’s Answer

You should work for a reputable company. Check to.see.if they have been cited for unethical behaviors. Check out what other employees and patients have said about the company. Remember that most people do not do a review of a company unless it is a complaint and due to HIPAA issues, the company typically cannot or will not respond. So look at those complaints to see if it is more of someone did not get what they wanted from their visit (eventually you will see a pattern and can tell the legitimate complaints vs disgruntled employees or patients that didn't get what they wanted)

I belive a better question is "what specialty do I want (or do not want) to work in?" If you have a passion for children, then a pediatric clinic would be great. If you are opposed to abortions, then obviously a clinic that performs those procedures would not be for you. Urgent Care or Primary Care give you lots of variety and opportunities to learn extra skills.

When you are first starting out, it can be difficult to find a company that is willing to take someone without experience, so you may be limited on your choices. Look for more than your hourly rate...you want a company that values training and education. Do they want to have you do just one job or are they willing to cross train you?

The more skills that you have and routinely do, the more valuable you are to the company. Without neglecting your primary job, learn other jobs in the office and help out there when you can. When it comes time for your review, you can bring up these other things you do and may be able to get a larger raise.

Gloria’s Answer

It may be best to look for what the job offers, versus the name of the company. If you are new to the field, it may be best to look for jobs that hire new grads and offer on the job training. This will make your transition from student to Medical Assistant smoother.
