It’s tough to be a billing specialist nowadays, and more and more of them are losing confidence in their own profession.

While the amount of people majoring in courses preparing people for a job as a billing specialist isn’t necessarily dropping, fewer and fewer people are applying to become billing specialists in the first place and the workforce itself is looking grim.

With so many billing specialists no longer sticking around, this begs the question:

What are they all doing now?

We were curious, so we looked through the resumes of former billing specialists to see what kind of jobs they were moving into after leaving the field. There were thousands of answers, so we made the cutoff at the top 100 jobs.

The full list of those jobs can be found below.

Here’s a quick look at the top ten most common jobs for former billing specialists:

  1. Customer Service Representative
  2. Administrative Assistant
  3. Office Manager
  4. Accounts Receivable Specialist
  5. Medical Coder
  6. Accounts Payable Clerk
  7. Sales Associate
  8. Billing Manager
  9. Receptionist
  10. Accounting Clerk

These are all good jobs, all of them either utilizing some skill that a billing specialist would have or being a stepping stone to a different career.

Here’s the thing about these jobs though — as a list, they’re kind of boring as hell. They’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect a lot of former billing specialists to do.

How We Determined the Most Common Jobs of Former Billing Specialists

Using resume information from our database of over 7 million resumes, we looked at all resumes that listed billing specialist under their work history.

That’s how we made the initial ranked list.

To make our list of most interesting jobs, we looked through the ranked list to see if any positions:

  • Showed up in fewer than 1% of all new jobs
  • And, were not part of the 100 most common jobs in our database
