I did. I was able to make that transition through my working experience. I went from being a chair side dental assistant, to dental admin, to practice manager. I left the dental field and started at the bottom in a call center of a healthcare organization. Over 3.5 years, I almost doubled my salary and moved up the latter to a much higher position. The higher position was analyst based, but not as technical as most companies. I was able to gain exposure and experience to sales force, which helped me land my new role outside of healthcare. Also, there are great resources like Udemy, where you can find almost any tech based application class for purchase.

Sadly, no one that I know. Are you considering this transition? If so, may I ask why?

Thank you, yes I have been considering for a while. Just staffing has been way past critical and salary has even touched the inflation rates.

Do you have any recommendations?

I have been taking the google data analytics course and have been applying but no such luck! I enrolled in a class to help better my resume! So hopefully all this work isn’t for nothing! I am more in staffing I staff over 100 employees and staffing for healthcare has been terrible

It’s been a great program but I hear a lot of people have a hard time finding a job in the field so I don’t know how useful it will be. Time will tell.

Are there any cardiographic technicians or EKG techs here. Been trying to figure out how much we should be getting paid when I have a bachelor's in Exercise Science and due stress testing.

Anyone familiar with CA compensation laws?

I'm now with a new company and they pay their CA new grads as salaried. I've tried googling this law to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks!

I’m really struggling in my current role. I’m a contractor with a healthcare company. When I interviewed for this BA role, I was very forthcoming in that I am not a coder/programmer in any way. “You don’t need to be at all!” 90 days in, they are disappointed that I can’t code in SQL at an advanced level. Next to no training and the training that was provided has been by a developer…who doesn’t get why I don’t know how to code. They are holding on converting me because of this. I’m just lost.
