Jenna:  Hey Phil. I think a lot of students struggle with what setting they want to go into.  So would you tell students that don't know what setting they want to go into or maybe like new grads that don't know exactly what they want out of their career or even other people that don't know what's next in their career.  What advice would you give them?

Phil:  That's a great question.  I heard this commencement speech that just really articulated it really well.  It was everybody tells you to pursue your passion, but frequently,

A. you don't may not know what your passion is or

B. you can't because you're in a certain setting, a certain place, certain time of your life, or you don't have the money to do it or the...

What do you do when you don't like your job and you feel stuck?

 

What do you do when you don't like your job and you feel stuck? In this video, Jenna and Phil discuss their ideas for bringing excellence to a job, even when you don't like it.

Phil:  All right, Jenna, I've got a question for you.  What if you're in the situation where you just hate your job, you hate what you're doing, but you don't have a way to get out of it right now?  How do you bring excellence?  We've talked about passion and things like that, but how do you bring that when your circumstance just sucks?

Jenna:  So that's a hard question because like, if you don't know what's next, you don't have anything lined up, like what do you do?  But I will tell you that from the amount of people that I've seen face this, the second that they decide that they are going to leave, things start to change and things become a little bit more tolerable.  They can do things better and then something better does come.  So I think like the first...

Negotiating Your Salary

Dear New Grad PTs and PT Students,

  • I know that a lot more goes into the overall salary and I...
