    Jared's Bio:
    I graduated from CSS with a degree in Exercise Physiology. Now I'm in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program here. I love the active environment this school has, which makes for a great experience especially in a major like my own. Coming to this school has been one of the best decisions of my life. Not only is the school a perfect fit, the city of Duluth is so active and alive all the time, which made the selection of St. Scholastica even easier. I have made so many amazing experiences here that I cannot imagine going to any other school.

Prospective Job Woes

I was browsing facebook earlier today, and came across a post from a fellow PT who was discussing low balling new graduate students for a variety of reasons. Here’s the link to the article.

 

http://updocmedia.com/why-low-balling-salaries-is-hurting-everyone-an-open-letter-to-employers/

 

In this post, Ben brings up a valid point regarding seniority in the work force. We have to acknowledge that seniority does exist in the workforce, but the point that needs to be made is that seniority shouldn’t be based upon who has been working at a certain position/company the longest. There is the thought that you must be doing something right if the company has kept you around that long in the first place. In healthcare, however, the dogma of seniority based upon years of work experience NEEDS to be thrown to the wayside.¬†Coming out of PT school with our Doctorate degrees means we are well prepared and have a more in depth knowledge base to pull from. Getting low-balled in pay/benefits only discourages us to live up to our potential, even though we may be performing to the same standards as the 15 year exp. PT who makes way more than we do. The article goes about discussing other factors that employers need to stop considering when low-balling new grads, definitely worth taking a peek!
