So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future? (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?) Thanks in advance!
Hey everyone, I guess you could say I'm in a sticky situation with my current hospital job. I work quite a bit, and am also in my last semester of undergrad. I'm doing a year of post-bacc work before PA school, so I want to continue to work for a while. The problem is that I've only been at my job a couple of months and I'm not happy with it. While the staff is great, the manager is just rude. Because of this being my last semester, I really want to make it count and get great grades. However I feel as if working this many hours is negatively impacting this. When I asked to reduce my hours, he basically laughed in my face and told me to figure it out (like my options were to leave or drop a class). I have enough hours to apply to grad school, however I wanted more experience, hours, and of course money. As a Very last option I'm considering leaving and finding a different hospital job. How bad would it look to only have a few months of this hospital job on a grad school app? They know school comes first as I said that when I was hired in, but are being very rude and unaccomodating about it all. I've dealt with bad management before but this is a whole new ballpark for me. Any advice?
