You will gain some experiences and you will get a good recommendation letter(if you work hard).
Ms. Tammy Liu (Sacramento County volunteer coordinator) is a wonderful lady; she will match you with your best interest. Also, the supervisor where I worked as a volunteer is very nice and helpful. I highly recommend this organization. Thank you very much for the excellent services.
I found working with the staff at CMISP was the best thing I could have done to obtain the needed experience that would allow me the opportunity to enter into the medical records environment. I had graduated with my AS Degree in medical billing and coding in December 2011 and was finding that without medical office experience I was not a proper candidate for working in a medical office. I learned about volunteering with the DHHS through Volunteermatch.com via the LinkedIn website and was excited when I found the perfect entry into the medical office arena. I worked almost a full time schedule and traveled an hour to and from the office site knowing that this would be my only chance to obtain experience and it paid off big time within a little over 2 months I found and was hired on by a hospital to work in their medical records department. I am an EMR1 technician and so grateful to the folks at DHHS for giving me the chance to prove my worth in this field. I have my dream job.
Department of Health and Human Services is a great place to volunteer. I did volunteering here about ten months. It is a good platform to maintain the skills. Here, the staff is very nice and very appreciative of the help they receiving. I would highly recommend DHHS as a place to volunteer.
