Okay I'm 28 and I currently work as an accounting clerk for a medical billing company in Northern New Jersey. I'm near New York City by the way. Anyways, I have been working for this company for a little over three and half years now. I originally was their mail clerk where I pretty much put insurance claims into envelopes, stamped them and dropped them off at the local post office.
After a year, I asked for a promotion and I was granted it as I was given a position in data collections where I would try to find workers' comp and no fault injury reports in a couple of EMR systems and scan them into our system for various patients of clients of ours. I would also sometimes call patients looking for workers' comp and no-fault insurance information.
About ten months ago, I was promoted to an accounting clerk position where I basically would tally up checks we got in the mail each and every working day for clients in excel sheets. I would then scan the checks and EOBs in our system, so payments could be posted and then I would deposit checks for some clients in a chase scanners and other checks for other clients I would take to a local chase branch. I earn about $16.50 an hour currently and I'm thinking about getting a new job. I'm not sure where to look though.
I'm trying to get a job with more growth. As for an overall idea of what I want to do, I'm honestly not sure but I just want a job with more growth at the moment. There has been growth at my present job but I don't think there is enough left to expand upon. I have been thinking about getting a headhunter? Does anyone here have experience with a headhunter? By the way, I was an English Major with a writing concentration, so my accounting position is a bit away from what I studied. I'm also a public notary if that helps.
