What do you NOT like?

No respect- took tons of gen, orgo, bio, food, and polymer chem, all bio series, anatomy/physio, genetics, nut genomics, molecular bio, microbio, bacteriology, clinical nutrition, maternal nut, community nut, food service management and more (treated like I know nothing, and ostracized by the nurses, the charge nurse, nurse attendants, and MDs. Its like they think I learned only how to carry a meal tray and know how to temp check, the unit fridge and trays.Treated like a food service worker or a volunteer who is always asked to do errand). Low wage-$15-$22/hr( I worked all through college. Starting at a wage of $2.50/hr, all the way to $34.00/hr. After graduating with a degree in Clinical Nutrition and a minor in Genetics. For all of that practical knowledge to be paid nothing is not worth it!!! Also in the interview for getting the job-showing that you've worked for 5+ years is not a good idea... bc the hr at the hospitals I've worked at were really concerned with how much leadership experience I had and felt that I wouldn't be happy starting at $11/hr.

I started PT which at a hospital is 24hrs a wk, and they would always have me work 'extra hours' which equaled full time and was more than 32hrs which was considered FT at the hospitals I worked for, but they were unwilling to give me benefits- which was very sucky though I did get time and a half, but I really wanted benefits. There is a pattern in the nutrition field, where there are a lot of pt and per diem jobs, but not so many ft jobs unless you want to work at a correction facility.(Correction pays well, but has a ton of competition. bilingual (mostly Spanish)- you see in job posters that they want you to be bilingual in Spanish- and for all the people who know Spanish on a conversational level- that's not gonna cut it. A lot of good jobs (good benefits, good pay, good work life balance) require one to be bilingual in Spanish-if its not your native tongue and you don't have the language gene, you should probably start learning it by age 2yrs. I was lucky in that I knew 2 other languages besides American English and bargained/persuaded my way into the clinical DTR jobs. But I've been to WIC where they say language is not a problem, yada yada yada and then they only take people who are native speakers. So knowing the 'corre Show More
