How can someone transition from a pharmacy tech to another career in healthcare technology ? I feel like I’m unmarketable because the first thing employers see is “pharmacy tech”. Meanwhile I’m in school for masters of public health.

Would you be interested in a sales role? That, in my opinion, would be the easier department in tech to transition into if you don't have any other technical skills. How far are you in your masters program? You can certainly make good money in healthcare administration as well

I'd narrow down the types of roles you're interested in transitioning into and then figure out which of your current skills are transferable and which ones you need to work on. It's not impossible, but you'll have to be strategic about how you market yourself. Might be worth looking into having your resume professionally optimized.

Hi there! I’m nearing 1 year with my tech startup but I am also letting my eyes wander at those LinkedIn emails with other companies that are hiring. I’m super concerned about the viability of my company and it being able to last. But also I’m not at all receiving adequate compensation for my work or any benefits. I might be getting a small raise at my annual review, but nothing much to combat inflation. Is there any advice for not being too attached or feeling guilty for looking at other jobs?

I even sent a separate email to confirm the second phone call. Second day of the interview, same thing, no show. I sent an email letting him know that my time is not being valued. (Cont’d)

Help! I’m in a position I like with a client I’m fine with, and have a GOOD work life balance and an awesome team. I got a job opportunity dropped in my lap that would be a promotion and raise, working with an old boss I love. The clients would be more public health initiatives, so less of an ethical pretzel (it’s hard running competitive against a safer/more effective drug), but I’m afraid of going back to all work no life. How do I choose?

The hiring manager didn't want to move forward with a candidate because of his gut feeling. The candidate had the experience and skills necessary but couldn't put his finger on why he didn't want move forward.

The only answer he could was that she asked if pay could be changed and asked about benefits.

I smell bias all the way

Most effective form of communication? I always prefer written (email etc) as one can look and understand infinite number of times and ask questions or ping for short queries. Still we tend to stick with scheduling meetings/calls and waste everyone’s time thinking about the issue on the calls itself. Why people don’t understand that best of the questions come up when a person is at peace thinking properly about it rather than putting on the spot as if he/she is a encyclopaedia.
