There are like 2 use cases for this actually making senses - 1. Start a business in a semi regulated industry or 2. distressed debt / restructuring investment banking.

Unless you absolutely know you want to do one of them it’s mostly a waste

Can you all elaborate on your comments more? Do you have JD/MBAs and are speaking from experience?

I recommend you try to find ONE job where this combo degree is preferable to either a JD or MBA (one of which will be better suited to the position)

Hi everyone 👋

I have worked with this group for 2 years as a front desk administrator for an endoscopy suite. Along with that role I have taken on other responsibilities including Open Access Scheduling and the occasional resume screening and interview scheduling through indeed. About a year in, management increased my pay from $14/hr to $15.25/hr during the height of covid. I am starting school soon and will be working part time. Would it be fair to ask for another raise?

I’m going to yell this out tomorrow and look at the expression on the kids faces 😀😀
