Late post but I’m thankful for the Controller who made the big4transparency.com website! It may have helped a few souls realize they’re underpaid and looked for greener pastures which then contributed to the movement in the market and therefore the firms’ drive to make compensation competitive. I hope everyone updates the sheet with their adjusted comps in the past few months to make it more recent!

I'm a Registered Nurse who's been working as a sales professional for the last 11yrs. Ironically, none of the sales jobs I've been recruited for have been in healthcare. They've all been in the industrial setting (O&G, Chemicals, etc). I just moved across the country for my husband's job, and the new job I found is terrible. I'm looking to get back to my roots in healthcare and apply my sales experience to that sector, but I'm not getting any calls back for this sector. What am I doing wrong?
