Good episode? Give it some love!
Are you sabotaging your chances at a promotion or job search? Maybe you’re limiting or disqualifying yourself without realizing it. I always recommend reaching out directly to the folks who are in a position to advance your career, but proceed mindfully to avoid these very common mistakes! 
In this episode of The Career Rx we’ll discuss:
  • How to talk about expectations of that new role 
  • Discussing salary, compensation, perks, and negotiables
  • How you might be restricting yourself too much in your search
Today we're going to be talking about three huge job application mistakes that physicians (or anyone) sometimes make even with the best intentions. These are loaded topics - when and how you should inquire about the daily expectations and duties of a role, discussing salary and benefits, and how narrowing your search requirements might be leading to missed opportunities.
