Employment Tips From Around the Web
From Project Resume‘s Annie Barnaby:
“When I began the Project Resume, I was a medical coding hiring manager and recruiter reviewing resumes from so many coders who had endless potential. Unfortunately, that potential was impeded by resumes with poor grammar and spelling mistakes, and worse.
It became clear that there was little guidance available to medical coders regarding career development and professionalism. I set out to fix that so I began Project Resume. Contact me, let me see how I can help you at an affordable price you can live with.”
