Re: medical assistant training
I'm sorry that you're having such a difficult time finding a job as a medical assistant. Unfortunately, that seems to be the consensus in the field. Perhaps you can look for related types of jobs such as medical records ("health information") clerk, receptionist, radiology file clerk or such. Perhaps you can also apply to some temporary job agencies if even for any job but perhaps similar ones to the field. It can help one's resume to not have too many gaps, know what I mean.
