Good question and I have a simple answer for you - network, network and when you are done, network some more! Now, I'm being something silly in that response, but the simple truth is that at the core of every good job search is networking. Reach out and work through the placement office at your college, utilize social media (if you are not already on LinkedIn, join today!) and reach out to groups or organizations established within your field. If you are not opposed to working through an agency, then reach out to those that specilize in placing medical assistants in your area. Many health care facilities utilize agencies, so that could be a potential avenue for you.
I know it is tough to feel encouraged when you aren't getting the responses you desire, but don't give up!
