What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) in Baltimore:
"This is a great job, take any learning opportunity to get in."
Volunteer or take any entry level job you can to get experience in this field. I am blessed to have a manager that is fantastic about training her employees. Not all places will do this. She started me out on Emergency room charts and observation patients. Then she taught me Ambulatory Surgery charts. It took me 4 years to get certified but then she taught me inpatients as well. It's the best job I've ever had.
