Currently working as an LPC-R in Virginia and am quickly burning out with my current employer. Does anyone have any ideas of what a resident therapist can do ASIDE from traditional clinical counseling? I’m testing for licensure in a few months and have been looking for opportunities such as teaching, training, or other positions in which I’d be working directly with people in some capacity.

My two years is coming up at my current company and I was curious what salary other system/automation/controls engineers are making in Northeast ohio. This is my first engineering job so I will have 2 years of experience at the time of my review. I’ve heard my raise will get me just shy of $80,000 but I have a feeling other companies pay better
My coworker brought a puppy to work, who bit my hand. I ended up losing my temper and yelling at them. Now everyone is mad at me for blowing up at work, even though this is something I shouldn't have had to deal with in the first place!
I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.

Burnout from long hours is having a big impact on my family and my wife is asking me to consider working part-time for a while. Financially, we would be fine. I’m worried about how few opportunities there are for part-time MEs.
I’m 7 months into my first CE job after uni. The pay is awful and management is even worse, but it was the only job offer I received. How long should I stay here before I start looking for other jobs? Will it concern companies that I left a job after such a short period?

Which one do you find to be a more important factor when picking between job offers, higher pay or exciting projects?
I manage const for eng companies. Got short video interview, then a job offer @ low end my req. range. Experience: it’s normal to travel for a 2nd interview in person. Result: I see quitting to do this as risky. I asked for more $ than my prior range & explained I prefer we meet in person to see if it’s a fit 1st. Hiring manager wants me and may push for the $ but not the in person meet. Wonder if it could cause me to start there with less trust if they think I abused my position for more $.

Have you and your team expressed to your manager that you feel spread too thin? It might be a good idea to have that conversation. Your manager might not realize he is overpromising.
This is so common.
In my experience I’ve worked very closely with sales. Anytime they need new drawings for customer quotes I make sure to echo what they’re asking from me. If it’s unreasonable, I push back and edit the deadline. I’m happy to allow my sales team to put the blame on me if it means I’m not drowning. Sales just needs an excuse to cover themselves and stay on good terms with their contact. Although, this won’t work if there isn’t any trust in the working relationship. If that’s the issue then you might think about having a feedback conversation with them and rebuilding that trust. Listen to “Thanks for the Feedback” on Audible or buy the book.

I walked out of an interview once when it was made clear that's what was happening. A year later, a mass exodus almost crippled the company. It's a common problem that serves absolutely no one. If they aren't willing to change their ways, the burden of their poor decision making shouldn't fall on you. If they aren't making deadlines within normal working hours, it's on them. Hopefully though, your engineering team can help them see the problem and get things under control.
YES... I think the way engineers are portrayed on TV shows makes us all look bad in comparison. Rodney McKay on Stargate? As if we could ever live up to that level of arrogant excellence? Please. It isn't okay for your boss to overpromise your team's work. It might be worth going over their head and talking with their supervisor, if you've already talked with your boss about it calmly of course
