anyways, it's done now - thanks.

How'd it go?

well, cheers. he gave me a salary range and it's higher than what i'm on currently, but only around £5k or so. still, better than nothing! stuck an application in, so just a waiting game now.

£5k is a fair bit.

eazypz make good quality written notes of what they say, and ask to agree a set of minutes shortly afterwards. Would suggest you record it but would probably come across as being awkward.

Money's okay though… Right?!

eazypz wrote: Got a meeting with my boss next week regarding this, I sent an email saying that I'm not happy to pay it and that the engineers aren't happy either. I mentioned that I've asked my union rep regarding this situation which I think has worried them a little, hence the meeting and not an email back.
Will see what happens now.

finish my PhD (Pharmacology) in 6 months (fuck!) and therefore need to send feelers out for job opportunities etc. I really want to get into equity research (with a slant to healthcare/pharma/biotech). I have a few connections already, but I am aware it is super hard to get into that field (not many jobs etc), so would really appreciate some pointers on how I could work on my CV a bit to help me get my foot in the door somewhere - from someone already in the field/a similar field.

I have some backup opportunities including a post doc in the states, but staying in an academic setting longterm really isnt for me, and im not sure prolonging my university experience will do me huge favours in the long run

Did you post this just to brag? Laughing out loud

Go speak to a recruiter that specialises in that field.
