I work in dialysis and it’s a great way to break into medical social work. I am transitioning to a hospital job starting in 2 weeks. Hospitals typically want social workers with experience and dialysis was my first step towards my goal. Good luck

If you have your license just keep applying. Good way to start is per diem or part time weekends as that’s how a lot of hospital social workers get a foot in the door. Good luck!

I am project manager in clinical research industry (CRO). After earning PhD, I gave up my science dream to take a more stable job. After slowly climbing the ladders, I feel like I finally got a seat at the table. Half the days I like the hustle, but now I miss being creative. I want to take more brainstorming, decision making responsibilities but I don’t see that in the career path for PM. Career path usually goes like this- Sr PM, Director l, Sr Director, and so on. But all do same work.

Hi everyone,
I passed my PMP thanks to this sub group.
I have passed Above Target in the People section, and T in the other sections.
It was 95% situational questions.
Thave used AR's mock exams, and used my wrong answers to figure out my weakness and where I truly stand. I didn't purchase AR's course, just the mock exam simulator.
The 200 agile questions by David McLachlan were amazing, it really helped me in adapting to an agile mindset. TIA simulator n Joseph Phillip is useful.

Advice on FT Recruiting

Context, just wrapped up a PE summer analyst position at a MM PE firm. Great experience, training, deal work exposue, just not somwhere I saw myself full time.

They took a very small % of class for FT, and I did not receive an offer. I recruited FT for IB last year, so I am rekindling some of those connections + new ones. Does anyone here have experience / advice for FT IB recruiting? I understand it is an uphill battle, but possible.

Hi everybody,

Looking for some insight/curious to hear how others would handle this situation:

I have an offer I want to accept; I was trying to negotiate for a signing bonus… but they’re not budging.

The issue is, the start date is in a month and I’m up for a promotion in a week at my current company. I would like to leave before I get promoted, I think it would be pretty low of me to accept and promptly quit.

Not the new employer’s problem? Or can/should I try to leverage this?

Do you think all these violent and hate filled attacks are because people aren't getting the emotional/mental support they need, whether it's therapy at any age or help they needed but didn't get from a social worker as a child? My coworker is sure this is the case, but I honestly think there's actually something deeper wrong either with how these people are being raised as children, or how the warning signs these people give off are ignored or swept under the rug to save face.
