Not really, usually generalist is only for school hires not experienced

@BCG1 - thanks for the reply. Is this valid at all levels? Or associate and consultant only? Curious whether it still holds true for project leader.

Question about BG check. I’m working full-time for my current employer but I also did internship for the same employer in the past, so I listed those experience separately in the resume. Regarding BG check, I could ask them not to contact my current employer for my current full time job. What about the internship for the same employer? Could I also ask them not to contact the same employer to verify my internship? Anyone in the same boat?

I’m recovering from trauma and depression after being manipulated by a “friend”. Ended up quitting my job and leaving my relationship because he bullied me so often about those things. I keep replaying the tape over and over again in my head. Trying to comb through all the deception, lies and gaslighting. Has anyone been through a simile thing? What does the other end look like?

I am a fairly new grad NP with 10 years experience as a med surg/peri operative nurse. I’ve been at my new job in an office setting for a bit now and it’s a toxic work environment.
