I am curious as to how people respond to the “what are your career goals and interests”. I’m not sure how to articulate what those are and would love advise. The one thing I know is that I want to steer away from project management/admin stuff and do more technical/hands on work. I have a background in environmental science and do QC checks and database management (I find it uninteresting). I feel like I am stagnant in my skills and not learning anymore, and want more science heavy stuff.

In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.

I got an offer for $21/hour and a 10k sign on bonus as a CST in Charlotte, NC with 2.5 years of experience. I am trying to negotiate for more because my application was for a Night Shift and now they’re saying that they do not have that shift open for anyone because it’s a new hospital (opened in 02/22) and offered me 4 10’s day shift instead. Should they not be able to adjust the pay, is this still a competitive pay? Should I take it regardless? Or don’t take no for an answer and move on?
