What is the average salary of an entry-level Certified Surgical Assistant in Illinois? In addition, could you tell me if my foreign medical experience of three years (as a physician) would count toward my job experience and compensation here in the US?! Thanks so much! #foreignmedicalgraduate

Hi there! For Certified Surgical Assistants, the range typically falls between to $113k to $141k. Entry-level would probably make a $115k.

Average range would be from $109k to $120k depends on how big the facility is. Foreign medical experience counts. I knew a lot of them working in big hospitals who got their experience outside of the country. Experience is still experience no matter where you were able to perform it.

I have extensive experience in the cardiac surgical icu and med surg icu what could be a suitable job for me

The is a lucrative role. With even 0 YOE, coming in at a entry level, you can make up to $100-120k just starting off.

Comp folks. Let’s hear it!

Hello all,

I have 7.5 years of total experience and around 4 years of relevant experience into Analytics.
Current CTC is 16.5L (fixed) and offer from Genpact is 26.4L including 10% variable.

Got a mail from Accenture that I have reached till HR round and they have asked to create a profile in their careers page, I did that and it's been 4-5 days no one has reached out, HR doesn't answer calls.

-- Is it usual to take so much time?
-- What's the ideal compensation I should ask?


Thanks

I feel like in our school they are asking more and more of aides and other staff with no certification (beyond HS diploma). Don't get me wrong I don't mind helping out but we are the lowest paid position in the district, why are we asked to fill in for everyone else with no compensation? Ive subbed in classroom and special areas... um even uncertified subs make more than me... admin insists this is happening everywhere and we need to be flexible... but is it really?!?!

Recognizing there are flaws in this analysis, if you divide your total compensation by the sum of your portable book and your working dollars collected, what number pops on the calculator?
EG, 900,000/(2,000,000 + 950,000) = ~30.5%
