Placement Direct Extensions Now Available!

Medical Transcription5 Comments

We’re pleased to announce that we’re now offering extensions for access to Placement Direct, our online resource and employer database for Medical Transcription Editor and Medical Transcription graduates, as well as our graduate services!

We have two different extension options available:

  • 12-month access to Placement Direct for $99
  • 12-month access to Placement Direct, Graduate Services, and Resume Reviews for $399

In case you need a refresher on any of these resources, here’s a quick breakdown…

Placement Direct
Placement Direct is a phenomenal resource that most of our graduates are able to use to get their first job. (Students typically receive 12 months of access to Placement Direct and our graduate services with their enrollment.) Our Graduate Advisors are often asked for continued access to this tool, which is why we’ve put these special extensions together.

Placement Direct provides you access to our list of 115+ medical transcription employers. This list includes much more information than you can find on these companies websites alone, and these profiles can include everything from…

  • The application process
  • Pay rates
  • The number of editing accounts they have
  • Advancement opportunities and processes
  • Special application and hiring requirements for Career Step graduates

These are only a few examples of the additional information you can find, and all of this info is provided by the actual company, so you know it’s reliable. The special instructions for Career Step graduates can save you time, get your application directly to a hiring manager, or exempt your from pre-employment testing—so just these instructions alone can be invaluable! You can find Career Step specific instructions such as sending your resume to a specific email address instead of applying through their website form or skipping testing if you’re a Career Step High Honors graduate.

Graduate Services and Resume Reviews
Our graduate and resume review services provide you access to our experienced Graduate Advisors. They can offer advice and suggestions for your job search, provide interview tutorials, and help you update your resume and tailor it for the medical transcription industry. These advisors have years of experience helping our graduates land great, work-at-home medical transcription jobs, and they can help you prepare for a successful job search as well.

Our mission at Career Step is to help our students gain the skills they need to start rewarding careers—careers we hope will be enjoyable and successful for years to come. We are very excited about these new extensions because we believe they will help our students to further continue their careers in the medical transcription industry.

You can purchase either of these options by contacting our Operations team at 1-888-657-5752 option 2.

    I am very much interested in the placement direct, but would like to utilize the graduate services and resume review as well.  I cannot afford the $399 and really need graduate service support as well as resume assistance.  I want to work as an MT from home, and I also want to be able to become a CMT.  I really need guidance and direction.

    Hi Lynn,

    I would recommend investing in the $99 Placement Direct resource at the very least. You should also check out the Student and Graduate Community ( as you can find quite of bit of job search advice there as well.

    Best of luck on your job hunt!

    Is the Placement Direct a list of MT companies that are currently hiring and may not list on the other websites or just a list of MT companies for us to go down through and apply to?

  4. Hi Audrey,

    The Employer List in Placement Direct contains information on over 115 companies that actively hire Career Step graduates. Many of these companies are regularly hiring, but often don’t list this information on their sites, as they receive all the applications they need from simply appearing on our site.

    Hope this helps!

    I noticed that currently there is a free month extension with a code till the end of the month. Could I purchase that free month without having to purchase a 12-month access? I know I only need a couple extra weeks to finish the program.

    Hi Ashely,

    Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, extensions cannot be combined with any other offers and these offers are only available for 3- or 4-month extension purchases. Please feel free to contact our Operations team at 1-888-657-5752 option 2 for help extending your course.

    Best wishes!
