Hi all! New to fishbowl and looking for some advice! I currently have 2 bachelors degrees and a Masters in Health Sciences. I have 7 years of inpatient healthcare experience and have started as a Data coordinator in solid tumor cancer research about 3 months ago. I get paid around $20/hr and am highly overqualified for basic data entry. However through out this process I’ve realized I love the science of what I do and want to possibly be a clinical scientist. Path/job suggestions?

Unfortunately yes and no. I can do whats called stretch projects (basically the work of the next position up without the pay). But I’ve been told by both my direct manager and the director that I can’t get a raise for what I do now (which is train new hires- yes at 90 days in I’m already training new hires) and they only promote every 6 months. Regardless of my “readiness”.

Hi! I currently work at a small but mighty PR firm making $60K (or $65K with no benefits) and I wonder if I'm being underpaid. I have 5 YOE.

I currently am the sole person responsible for driving PR efforts for all of our clients (we're only a team of 4). I keep thinking that with 5 years of experience, I should be making in the $72-$80K range (based in ATL). What's considered fair?

To add context, I'd be equivalent to an SAE at a larger firm.

How do you guys negotiate multiple offers.
I am a very bad/dumb 😅 negotiator.
Whenever HR discussion happened they " this is the maximum they can provide according to my years"
In some cases i got lower than what I am currently holding and got the above reason.
Couldn't refuse as I liked the company.
Fearing they might not offer anything.
Thing is refusing to hr offer during negotiations does really results in losing the offer Or saying no if it doesn't meets expectations will not do any harm.
