I’m just about done with my MBA (down to my last 2) and I worry about getting low balled because I lack management experience. I am a registered respiratory therapist of just about 20 years and now I work as a clinical liaison for a LTACH. I was a RT charge/team lead while still on the floor but never had any experience with financial management. That concerns me. I don’t know how best to transition into operations management without having to take a severe pay cut. Any suggestions?

Last year, I completed my masters in accting and started my IA career. After a year, I realized I didn’t enjoy the work and felt extremely underpaid. I accepted a lead role 3mos ago. The company is extremely understaffed and I feel overworked. On top of that, my manager left after 2mos of me joining the company. I am regretting taking this job and feeling a bit lost. For context, I have 2yrs experience in FinOps and 1 1/2 of IA. Just looking for some advice/guidance. Thanks in advance!

Appreciate the input.
