[Histonet] Histotech Marketability

Request that the HR dept of your current employer do a job code market
survey for your geographic area.  After they tell you your salary is
equivalent to current market conditions ask them how long it would take to
fill a vacancy in your area.  When they say "We don't know" ask them to try
to fill a position (real or not).  Then inform them what a "histo'temp"
would cost ($57-60 hr.) to fill in while ????  There is a good deal of
upward pressure on histotech salaries (well overdue) and given a suitable
fit now is the time to look towards the future for new opportunities   An
individual's concept of their marketability may differ substantially from
their employer's but this is limited only by their current work environment.
I know, blah, blah, blah.  We have a full-time, M-F, day shift, histotech
position open.  This is a seasoned dept looking towards the future to lay
the foundation of a new staff to take over (+/-5 yrs) as we retire.  We have
a current opportunity for someone either interested in the eventual
department manager's role or as a traditional bench histotech.  Click on the
web links that follow to get a snapshot of our institution and of Spokane:

Remember, "making a living" is not the same thing as "making a life".
Thanks, Greg

Hello histonetters. . .just a quick question.  What is the marketability
(pay scale ect.) of a tech with a BS in biology/chemistry, 2 years of
experience with proven competency in all aspects, grosses, and has IHC and
IF experience?  I am looking to get feedback from all over the country. Any
