You do not say what location you are interested in so that makes this a little difficult to answer. There are some sites on the Internet that may be able to help you find a clinic, doctor's office or a hospital that is looking for a medical assistant. These, for example, may be worth you having a look at: http://www.usmedicalassistant.com/ and http://www.careerjet.com/medical-assistant-jobs.html.

The good news is that the demand for medical assistants is currently exceeding expectations according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, and it is a field that will allow you to grow professionally.

In the United States, certification for medical assistants is voluntary, but many employers prefer, or even demand, that their medical assistants are certified.
This process is backed by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) and other professional bodies because they want to be able to guarantee the competence of medical assistants.

It is usual for certification to be achieved by taking the CMA Certification Examination that is offered by AAMA in conjunction with National Board of Medical Examiners. This exam can be taken throughout the year at one of the many testing centers throughout the states. 

This qualification must be re-certified every five years either by sitting another examination or by continuing education. More information about all of this can be found by checking out the information on this site: http://www.aama-ntl.org.

The other organizations that validate certification are equally valid, though the credentials are a little different. The American Medical Technologists (AMT) are responsible for giving credit for becoming an RMA (Registered Medical Assistant). Once again, the qualification is technically voluntary but the candidate will have the honor of having letters after their name and a distinct advantage of gaining employment over those who are not certified.
