Yep, I know.. I've worked this field for almost 20 years
Takes a toll on the back., I'm not disabled, but I'm not 100% that's for sure, ha!
Been in several state facilities and that's where your age and physical ability plays a big role in the hiring factor.
(although they'll NEVER admit that)
I'm still capable of most job duties, but not as capable as a 20 year old straight out of college.
If I get my pullforward in May, I can enroll in a 3 month class to allow me to be on the billing end of things.
The med field is a great job choice. Two of my grown children are also in this field.
Many, many unemployed are flooding the med fields and facilities.
They have almost 50 app's to every one position available at my former employer. I still get called for some prn Hrs every few months
Sorta like, we can't use you fulltime, but when somebody puts us in a bind you can fill in and answer phones or something(ha)
I suppose my old job is Great for some of the newbies straight out of college or younger ones with a couple years experience.
Oh well, I do have it much better than alot of people, so I can't complain
Thanks for your suggestions
