What am I worth?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be renegotiating my contract for the first time. This is my first and only job; rural WY

making 70 a year and 12,500 in loan repayment (considered taxable income). After some research, I am over paid; other research says I'm underpaid. Any thoughts on what I'm worth? I can see 16 to 20 a day, but usually my volume is lower. Any feedback or good sites would be hugely appreciated!!!

tricky question. basically you're worth whatever your employer and the market thinks you're worth. think of yourself as a piece of real estate. if you're a house in beverly hills you might be worth $5,000,000. if you're that same house in downtown detroit, you might be worth $30,000.


it all depends on where you are, what you're doing, what the market demands are, and what your employer is will to pay you.


you could always move to a different area of the country for more $$, but then you're going to have a different cost of living so it might be a wash.

sounds low to me


Review the AAPA salary survey (if not a member of AAPA join and buy a report)


Tells you all that you need to know and more, but 70k is pretty low these days


also don't think that rural means low paying - these are the hardest jobs to get people into and I have seen some pretty impressive pay rates for rural care....
