Job Title: Medical Assistant
Education: Everest College, North Aurora, IL
Previous Experience: I changed careers to become a medical assistant.
Job Tasks: Here's what my job entails:
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: Best part is assisting patients and physicians getting treated with respect by all. The worst part is long hours can come up and you can not go home until the doctor has left for the day. So if an emergency comes up you have to stay. Not a regular 9-5 job.
Job Tips: You have to like to work with people. I would say that if you cant stand people this isn't for you. If you cant listen to an instruction once and act on it this isn't for you. A physician is not going to want to repeat his or her orders over and over. Also if you do not get along with women this isn't for you. If you like to gossip, this is not for you. If you like to take charge and get it done and help the patients, this is for you.
Additional Thoughts: Be a helper with a smile and a leader in your profession
