Feeling bummed out natural, we talk so much of our identity to our jobs. I know reading this probably won’t help but it’s true. Layoffs are part of the working life. I have a buddy who was a SFA got laid off for six months. Next job finance manager with a pay bump, got laid off for a year next job was corporate controller for a smaller company with a pay bump left that to be corporate controller for another company and got laid off 6 months with a pay bump became a Director. Laid off for a year due to pandemic and now he got another pay bump to be VP of finance somewhere. Not saying this is normal but sometimes career paths that look easy are actually quite arduous

I think you may have to broaden what industries you would want to work in, tech and startups are getting clobbered right now.

Where are you located also. Location plays a big role as well. As others noted, are you open to other industries?

Look up Ottobock…tons of jobs in US, Canada, Germany, etc… not a tech startup but maybe a good place to springboard.

If you can't find a referral here, I would try over on Linked in. I usually have good luck over there! Best of luck to you.

Physician Assistant salaries in the Chicago Area? I’ve practiced at an AMC for 5.5 years and make around 116k salary.

Another AMC offered me 124k 9 months ago for a similar role - which I turned down due to some red flags during interviews. Recently got a 10k retention bonus when I voiced my intent to leave but still feel underpaid as I’m literally keeping my practice afloat.

Hi- I’m an hourly AA, been on the role for 6 months now and it’s my first AA job. I did not get a raise when I took the job because it was technically a demotion ( I was a team leader at a contact center). I assist two VPs and now they want to add a third because they’re looking for the “ 3:1 ratio “. Should I ask for a raise? Is this normal? I know another AA that handles 3+ people but idk if she’s hourly or salary. Any thoughts?

The money is great, but the job is a joke. I’ve been here for 2 months and I want out. Advice?
