A bowl for discussing all things salary, compensation, negotiation, and promotion in the healthcare industry.
I have heard that mental health work and getting a psychology degree will doom me to a low salary. Is there anyone on here who makes over $70,000? If so, what job do you have? I want to help peoples mental health, but I also want to feel like I’m getting paid for all the education that I’m going to have to do. I know people in the military or working at amazon making $70,000+ with only a bachelors degree.
