hi guys! i wanted to ask for advice if anyone can help. currently i’m a scientist at a CRO and i’m doing work that is at least a title or two above mine. feels like im overworked and underpaid. i keep getting rejected to positions i feel like i can fill due to my years of experience. i technically only have been working since may 2020. but i have learned so much so quickly, im already doing method development/discovery work. should i settle for a job title below my current in pharma?

You mentioned learning at lot of skills. Have you had the opportunity to apply those skills in projects? Perhaps tailor your resume to include how you applied the skills you’ve learned to ultimately impact business problems or in your case the CRO client.

Hi Fishes,

My current employer is trying to retain me stating that they will match the offer (I have two offers at promoted level with Accenture strategy and PWC) and give me promotion in March. But need my commitment in written first that I will stay, only then they'll proceed with retention process.

Should I stay or jump as I haven't heard anyone getting a mid year promotion (in March)?

Appreciate your thoughts. TIA
