Ehh, I think that is a pretty good offer.  $60 for new grad is good.  Nightshift may need to be considered.  What is the census like?

Seems like an average offer for ER. It's hard to get into ER as a new grad so I would take it. But how much doc support will you be getting overnight? That's the most important question.

I'd say it all depends on the supervising physician support/training you will receive. If the docs are more then willing to show you the ropes and teach you, then by all means take the job. I did an EM residency my first year out and I took a very large pay cut, but the experience I obtained and excellent support I received from my supervising physicians was absolutely worth it. Now going into my second year I feel comfortable and confident in my ability to handle whatever walks in through the door, and I am well versed in 95% of the procedural skills needed in the ER, Including bedside US.

      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!

      Hi guys, I am set to graduate in August, but I have started looking for jobs because I want to work as soon as I can after graduation and PANCE. My current interests are Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Hospitalist. 
      I am living in Texas currently, and I am planning to stay here. But I have a hard time finding a job, most are specialty-based, on top of that, 90% requires you to have 2+ years experience. I was wondering if you guys have any tips or resources that are open to new grads. Thanks.

      New grad and wanted to ask a few questions. Most things on contract seem great but I have a few questions:
      They are offering claims made coverage with full tail, is this equivalent to occurrence coverage? 
      90k salary, 3k sign on bonus, no production bonus. Should I be getting a production bonus? If so, what is a normal %? Minimal call
      Profit sharing plan after 1 year (25%?), 4 years I'm 100%.
      Is it reasonable to ask for student loan assistance? I am not in a rural city.
      Thank you!

      Hey everyone,
           I am new to the forum and have seen that there is a lot of experience on here. I will be graduating in August and have a job offer in derm. I worked there before as a medical assistant and so negotiations feel a little more touchy if that makes sense. Here are the details:
      -$70,000 for first year
      -Full benefits for me, my wife and dependents
      -3 wks PTO
      -1 wk CME with $2,000 allowance
      -malpractice covered
      -society/membership fees covered (to a point)
      -noncompete for 2 years in 8 mile radius
      -second year will get a raise and will be base salary plus production bonus (no specifics on how much raise or bonus structure)
         What do you guys think? I don't want to be greedy but I think 70,000 is still on the low side even for a training year in derm. I really like the office and don't want to overstep by asking for a sign-on bonus or maybe to consider a raise once I start seeing patients. I am in Utah by the way.
          Any advice or feedback is appreciated. Thanks
