Atleast your moving in the right direction. I had an intership when I went to school for Administrative Medical Assistant. When I applied for jobs they wanted somebody that does phlebotomy and I am not into drawing blood so the education is wasted.
I guess it depends, I have been told when I received a diploma in Administrative Medical Assistant that was the certification. I also know that if it was for a Medical Assistant there is another test for certification. I been confused ever since.
I know the feeling, my paper is due August 30 at 11:59 PM and I still do not have a clue on a monetary policy. Well let's hope our degree's help in obtaining a good job. I just do not feel like going for my bachelor's for now. I will feel better when I can put on the job application and resume that I have the degree.
