While graduation just passed, I thought this updated blog post would be appropriate!
Whether you are interested in business, PT private practice, or not, Dr. Carter shares some great advice for anyone who is about to start their career or looking for career advancement.
1) Within some degree, we all have the ability to play a role in determining how much money we will make in our first job, and the difference could be a few thousand dollars.
At my first job I asked for 7,500 more than the starting salary they offered me. After a brief conversation, we settled at 3,500 more than the original offer!
2) Start marketing yourself now. Work on your negotiation skills and do your homework before going into any interview.
I was able to get 3,500 more because I knew the company valued advanced education. I stated that I was Orthopedic Residency trained and was preparing for my OCS and FAAOMPT at the time!
The video below is packed with valuable information for anyone looking to start their career or prepare for the next step in their career! More information on Dr. Carter can be found by clicking the book link below. While this book covers Cash Based Physical Therapy business model, it is loaded with general information regarding setting up a website, marketing in the community, and more. I read this book prior to starting my cash-based practice 1 year ago and it paid dividends.
I highly recommend checking it out!
