Any suggestions for a physical therapist trying to change careers? Having difficulty because I don’t have experience in anything else except working in an outpatient clinic.

I think you have to convey to the employer your willingness to learn and work hard. I am in a similar boat. I am trying to get a position in subacute care, I feel a big reluctance to hire me, because I haven’t worked in that setting. I got laid off for Covid and I don’t want to return to a private practice. Also dealing with ageism I think.

Every PT looks good on their resume, everyone looks the same. Your interview is what is going to set you apart. You’ve got to sell yourself. Be confident in your skills. Everyone is not out to get you. Don’t make assumptions about other companies. Your perception and what is actually happening could be two completely different things. If you are going into an interview or negotiations thinking negative things about that company, those thoughts are only going to fester.

Difficulty finding open positions in other settings or you think places won’t hire you because of your experience?
Don’t sell yourself short. Specific training can and needs to be done for each setting and your employer will provide that.

Ladies, I commend all of you who are pregnant and lawyering on the daily! I am 10 weeks pregnant and haven’t been working much since I left my firm in March. I tell my husband every day “IDK how anyone is pregnant and practicing law at the same time.” After a morning in court last month I was totally out of commission for the day. If you are still working as a lawyer full time and growing a human it is something to be proud of!

I have been with my company for almost 8 years. I wasn’t certified when I started but I have been now for about a year. It wasn’t required before. I learned that my coworker who has been with us less than a year and had no prior experience in healthcare makes very close to the same amount I do. My boss says our rates are based on our experience which is clearly not true. One of our none clinical members who left was making the same as me. Does this seem right to you guys?

I’ll be cutting my salary more than in half from my job in clinal research but trying to get into PhD program.

Hi everyone, I just finished my masters degree a few weeks ago, and I’m looking for a new role.

The school was accredited, during my time then lost accreditation a year after. (Mountain State University). Can anyone recommend how to handle this with HR if they can’t verify one of my degrees? Thank you!
