  1. Ageism is very real and existent in the job market. It's all about power and control from the hiring powers. Younger folks tend to put up with more crap. I left my previous job after 10 years due to burn out, over use and politics. I traveled for 9 months after which I returned to the job market Jan 2020.

Folks tend to gravitate to folks that are similar to them. i.e a 30 year old boss would
  2. Yikes!! very scary. You are technically an internal candidate but "your PA professional title" automatically disqualifies you even though you may be the best candidate.

Maybe it doesn't exist ha!
  5.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has attended either workshop and found it useful. Both are expensive. thanks PAfam!!!
  6. As a PA with over 16 years experience in ICU and surgery who recently got burnt out. Quit my job in summer after 8 years of working for a group. My advice is stay where you are 3K is not going to make or break you. Your current job seems more flexible- you cannot place a price on flexibility. You have established relationship with your current employer and everything in life is about relationships. Jumping the ship you will have to form new ones - which is not a bad thing but then you start from the bottom of the pole which is not always easy. I have a recent job offer for 118K 7on/7of
