Hi, I am a third year pa student & graduate in May 2020 (3 more months!) I just got my first job offer, which also happens to be my dream job, and I’m very excited about it. I want to share the good news with family and friends on social media, but I want to do it tastefully and with proper etiquette. What is safe/not safe to say publicly?
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?)
I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week). How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week? My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
Pre-PA here. I was wondering if anyone has insight into the current and likely future job market in the DFW area, or into saturated markets for PA's in general. I would intend to live in the DFW area after graduation. I gather that due to the presence of two PA schools and 3 NP schools in the area that we are pretty saturated. I'm trying to understand what this means in terms of current and future benefits and salary.
I am a non-traditional applicant working a job with a good salary currently. I'm trying to justify foregoing 30 months of salary at my current job for school. According to data I saw, the average salary in the area is around $103,000. Is this likely to decline? Is it possible to make substantially more than this in the area with experience and ability? Are benefits like 401k match and PTO declining?
Thank you for your help!
