Currently a medical assistant and considering the PA route. Living in Canada where the PA profession is relatively new (not as many specialities for PAs as the US, and salary is lower). I’m nervous about future burn out and unfavourable working hours - any advice?
Since graduating with my bachelors in pre-medical professions I have been working as a dermatology CMA to gain experiential hours for PA school. I am exploring other career opportunities before I go into a program but with only having 3 years MA experience I’m having a hard time applying my skill set to different roles. Any suggestions/advise/Opportunities?
I am a special education aide in a structured self-contained classroom. Toileting and hygiene puts me at greater risk. I am symptomatic but have used up all my sick days. Is anyone’s admin showing grace in the number of paid sick days or are you docked when your sick days run out? This is why I am inclined to go to school regardless. We don’t have a union.

I have a vesting coming up in 2.5 weeks, i am thinking of resigning on monday so my last day would be the day i vest. My manager is planning a pip, and before he does that i think it makes sense to resign.
I don’t know if they will push me out sooner or not, so should i be giving 2 week notice or just 1 week taking into account my vesting timing?
Don’t have much knowledge to transfer, so its going to be coasting out the notice period.

Ready to pull the plug - I think I want to try being a recruiter. I’d love to hear others’ experiences transitioning and how you like it now. Also if you’re able to make similar to your big law pay (junior associate level). You always see people saying they are doing crazy well, but I have to imagine that’s not everyone. Any pitfalls to watch for? Advice on finding such a job and picking a good recruiting firm?

I worked in Care Ratings as a junior consultant for seven months. I left that job because of the bad environment. Seniors were not behaving well. After that, I started learning Tableau and SQL and got certified as Tableau Desktop Specialist. And now I want a job in this field only but I don't have any relevant experience.

Hi. Lawyer of around 8 years (both big law and inhouse experience). Finally decided to accept the sunk costs as I have never been happy with my job.
After doing some serious soul searching, I want to pivot into SWE/web development. Preferably full stack. Only on point experience is having built 3 personal websites in Wordpress = nothing but something that shows my passion?
Going to try for the bootcamp path. But, would love to speak to some SWEs. I think 70% of my network is lawyers.
New member! I have a career consulting business on the side and would love to connect with those who are looking for help.🙂￼
The goal of this bowl is to connect mentors who can advise non-traditional candidates to make meaningful career pivots.

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making.
Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally.
Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!
