In Self Awareness
Jun 15, 2021
Constantly! I always remind myself that every job posting is looking for a mythical unicorn. The years of experience coupled with skillsets they must be looking for someone 100+. I also revisit some colleagues I’ve worked with in the past, and remember how many of them really knew nothing about the industry, but got the job bc of their personality, values, and drive to put themselves out there. If you wouldn’t say it to your friend, don’t say it to yourself.

I was asked by the recruiter what my salary needs were yesterday. I felt that by answering w a number I would either underbid, or overbid stalemating the conversation. I replied “ Given X’s reputation, I feel the offer will be competitive, and fair.

I have spent the last 16 years working in the medical field. I started out as an X-ray technologist in the cardiac Cath lab, interventional radiology, and electrophysiology. This was great bc I wanted to travel the United States. I then started working in Medical Device Industry for Electrophysiology. I am at a place in my life where constant travel does not meet my familial needs. I am currently taking a Ux Design course and am hoping to use my past experience to get a medical ux position starting out. It’s a very exciting and nerve racking process. I do feel hopeful! Everyday I gain more clarity on my direction as I complete my UX course, and reflect on Peppercorn materials.
