A lot of ways to pitch this. I am exiting after 8 years and all my experience in 1 PA. Plus I was in education pre-M.B.A. and consulting, and there’s not a lot of transferable skills at face value. BUT - there is always a story to tell. Breadth shows you can handle different topics well and tackle any challenge. Whatever they want you to focus on, you likely already touched it. And, you’ll bring new and different perspectives to increase diversity of thought.

There should be a reason you think you’ll fit into any role to which you apply. That is all you need. That and confidence / belief you are the best will take you a long way. You got this.

I recently passed my LCSW exam and I am waiting to receive my official licensure information in the mail. I interviewed for a position that requires the LCSW and received an offer to start as an MSW and eventually adjust my salary once my licensure and credentialing is completed. They gave me the salary for MSW level however, they said they could not tell me what the salary bump for LCSW would be until i have my license number. Is this standard practice for a LCSW position in a clinic?

Currently at Bain at manager level with 207K TC(after tax). Have an offer from a boutique consulting firm (part of a larger executive search firm) that focuses on People/Org consulting. Currently their regional office here is quite small so they have almost a startupy vibe. They are offering an engagement leader role with very similar salary(~5% pay cut). However, the big sell is apparently their hours are much better(45-50 pw) vs my current average of around 60-65.
