Ex healthcare workers in Tech/Sales Engineering/ Healthcare consulting;
I have my masters in nursing/FNP (1 yr) making <K70 (Indiana) due to low patient census in my role. No desire for a different FNP job nor to return to bedside nursing (RN 5 yrs). I have heard of some individuals with remote positions making >K100 with little to no experience in tech or consulting after doing a boot camp or cert?
If you pivoted; What’s your current role/ Income & what did you do to complete the transition?

I have been accepted for prince 2 foundation + practitioner (accelerated) course in sabacloud. This course is delivered by sure skills. Anyone has taken this course? Do we give a test at the end of this course or do we get prince2 certification for attendance? I’m trying to evaluate if this course is worth attending for 3 full working days - i.e do I need to attend this course to become eligible for giving a prince2 exam or attending the course itself suffice?

Trying to leave advertising for tech. Made it through final rounds of the interviewing process and they called today to offer me a position two levels below what I interviewed for.

This is a message to all of my tech people. I started in the industry 6 months ago as an IT System Support Specialist and have been excelling at a rather fast pace and have already received one slight promotion. My thing is that I still don’t know if I’m being paid fair since I am new to the industry and all of my coworkers live in Washington and Oregon vs me who lives in Louisiana where the cost of living is much lower. After my slight raise I am making $21/hr. Is this fair for my area? Advice?
