Meet Karin

Workforce Challenge

Karin was laid off from her job as a billing representative for a medical billing services provider in February 2011. She obtained new training in Medical Coding on her own, but was having no luck in finding employment and needed assistance in job searching.

Workforce Solution

Alliance Worknet provided Karin with a Paid Internship Opportunity as a Medical Billing/Coding/Accounts Specialist. At the end of the internship, Karin began attending biweekly Networking Sessions in her professional field where she was able to network with others and meet with employers in the same field. The networking sessions also stressed the importance of volunteering to keep yourself relevant and to keep your skills updated. Staff members also provided job referrals for Karin when appropriate ones came up.

Outcomes & Benefits

Karin began to volunteer with Sutter Gould, and gained a lot of confidence. When a position opened up with MedAmerica as a Medical Coder, a staff member made the referral for Karin and submitted her resume to them. Karin interviewed and with her newfound confidence from her volunteer position, she nailed the interview and was offered a job with MedAmerica in Feburary 2013.
