  1. I remember reading about how therapists got shafted in the 80s and 90s really bad. The cost of PT school is crazy high. It’s the same as medical school honestly. Only difference is PT school is a year shorter and there’s no residency. New grads make around 65k. That’s not enough for the debt burden. IMO.
  2. Ok so I had a conversation with a good friend the other day. He is the type to tell it bluntly, and not sugar coat anything. We all need those kinds of friends. He told me stop laying around and day dreaming. Start a plan, get my foot in the door and build from that. A fresh, new batch of talent graduates every semester and they are looking for work just like me. The job search is hard, perhaps the hardest job out there. He also said I was aiming too high in the job search and to focus solely on entry level positions because employers don't care how educated you are if you have no experience. Basically he said be more proactive and understand that you have to start somewhere. He is a guy I have long looked up to because he has great social skills and has done well for himself. He's a banking professional making 80+ with a house and car. Our conversation really helped me because I realized I'm not cut out for the typical corporate America grind. It's part of the reason I chose medicine as a career. The process to become a physician is very direct, you do undergrad + med school + residency with very little deviation. Aside from the love of medical science and the human body I wanted to judged on what I knew, not who I could rub elbows with. I hope that makes sense. That being said, I just registered for an Anatomy & Physiology class at my local community college. I have decided to to do an accelerated nursing program. From there I will have a variety of options. I feel like nursing is a logical option for me because it's still in healthcare and I get to interact with patients. Also I reached out to a former professor and sent him my resume. He's gonna see if there's anything I could do at his old job.
  3. You mean like via LinkedIn? I have contacted an old professor from grad school, I’m waiting to hear back from him. I don’t have much to work with when it comes to networking.
  4. I am very appreciative of all the help guys, I really am. I have looked into several of the suggestions you guys have mentioned and I intend on applying to some positions. Admittedly, I am a bit of a procrastinator. I'm working on it. Sounds like I need to apply to 20+ positions a day.
  5. That's not how I want to come across, it's just I think I'd be a really terrible salesperson. I don't think I have the personality for it.
  6. I know that any job I get is going to be entry level and probably not pay that good, that's fine. Everybody wants experience, even so called "entry level" positions.
  7. I will look into it. Thank you. From a quick google search, it seems like they are positions available however I don't have the experience listed. That's a common problem with my job search, I have the education but not the experience.
  8. I'm introverted, however I'm good at pretending to be outgoing. I'd probably be happy in an office more so than interacting with customers all day. I lift weights 5 days a week and prioritize my personal fitness. I enjoy football and track. Honestly can't say I'm "passionate" about anything other than medicine, but sadly that ship has sailed. At this point I just want a decent job with good benefits.
  9. That seems like an amazing opportunity, but I don't think I'd be a very good salesman. I actually used to be a long-term substitute pre-COVID. I hated it.
  10. I know how to study for ungodly amounts of time and regurgitate said information on a multiple choice exam. I started out as pre-physical therapy before switching to medicine
  11. I’m tired of being a student, I don’t think I want to go back to school again.
  12. Hello all, I’m at a crossroads in my life. I have no clue what to do next. I have applied and been rejected from medical school 4 times. I decided today to move on after receiving an underwhelming MCAT score for the 4th time. I hold a bachelor’s in exercise science and a masters in biomedical sciences. I have no clue what I should do for work. Im 29 and I live with my retired vet dad. I’m ready for some stability. I just don’t know what the heck to do. All I know is medicine. Bright side is I have no student loans and have a tiny bit of savings from the death of my grandmother (about $10k). I have looked into several careers including quality control testing, biotech & health operations. I’ve had one interview for a medical device position that I unfortunately wasn’t selected for. My whole life I’ve always known what my next step was, but now that’s no longer the case. It’s an odd place to be in. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  13. I don’t come to this thread often, actually this is like my second time reading it. Judging from the two pages I’ve read it’s a bunch of Trump supporters dogging Biden & Co. I bet if if were to search the Trump president thread it would be the exact same thing but in reverse. A bunch of Trump haters screaming the sky is falling and America is failing. It’s almost as if confirmation bias is a thing. I don’t watch cable news, in general I stay away from the 24/7 doom and gloom political stuff. However I try to stay civically informed as much as possible while avoiding obviously biased sources and the crazy conspiracy nuts. We really need politics to become less cultish. Not good for our country.
  14. Colts playing kinda soft this series. I really, really hate the prevent D.
  15. Ravens unable to capitalize on the turnover. If Wentz doesn't implode like we know he is capable of then the Colts should pull off an upset.
