I’m sure that with these tips you will be able to find the same success that so many have already found.
Just be realistic — If you don't have medical billing or coding training or if you can't type 60wpm without mistakes… and those are qualifications — it makes sense to not apply for that particular position. You don't have those skills — so don't waste your time or the employers. Focus on what you DO have going for you and the experience you DO have. And if you're really wanting something you're not qualified for, then seek training. I've taken many classes to help me with my blog and beyond.
