What part of PA are you in? It sounds pretty low but it may be because of the region

Hershey

Sounds low to me just based on your experience… not sure what you do by job title but, I’m a LVN new grad with less than 1 year experience and I make more in Texas which has a lower standard of living than PA generally speaking.

I’m following up on and billing outstanding accounts to get them paid. What’s your pay rate in Texas and what’s an LVN?

Hi all, I’ve been applying for jobs in Dubai for a bit more than a month and I haven’t received a reply, not even a rejection email. I’ve reached out to recruiters, some have accepted my LinkedIn invitations but none have answered 🙄 Is the recruitment process slow in Dubai or I’m just not lucky ?

Getting ready to launch a mobile app where the content is user generated (similar to Twitter’s content is user generated tweets).

Anyone have any marketing suggestions on how to get a lot of users on the app generating content when it launches?

I feel like it’s a catch-22, where the first downloaders will check the app out and see there’s not much content + therefore not use it.

I’m okay with paying for advertising, but not sure the best platform/strategy. Any suggestions would be helpful!

Hi everyone,
I am an RN/MSN working in outpatient quality management. The company’s undergone lots of transitions in the past few years and I’m in a place where I’m just trying to stay above water. I am very overwhelmed and constantly anxious about meeting all of the additional asks coming in. It also seems that we are constantly being asked to validate the work that we do which is pretty frustrating. I do like the people and pay is good but is it time to make a switch?

Our employee satisfaction survey is tied to our performance goals. Meaning, if we rate management badly, we cannot meet 10% of our goals which in turn affects our bonuses and raises.
