Non-technical members of blind, what do you do?

Nov 26

I'm seeing mostly SWEs and data scientists on here. Would love to hear more stories from non-technical members. Job market insights, interviewing experiences and obviously TC if you're comfortable sharing that.

How did you get your current role? Do you like it? What sucks about your company, what do you love about it? How much demand do you think there is in the market for your skills?

    Nurse practitioner. TC 180. In the lowest paying healthcare system in the Bay Area. I stay because I feel like my healthcare system care more about the patient than other hospital systems.

    New registered nurses make 160-180k in private hospitals, and registered nurses with a few years of experience (2-5 yoe) make 180-240k in private hospitals. If they do overtime, I have heard of RNs earning close to 300k but those are the workaholic ones. Nurse practitioners make 200k+ in private hospitals. Market is hot and if you get into a state hospital, the pension plan is 70% of the pay. TC is all cash and no one really worries about job securities.

    This TC is mainly in the Bay Area though because of high cost of living. I have heard of people flying into SF to work a few weeks of the month and return to their home state to chill the rest of the time.

      Starting pay outside is def less but cost of living is also less. You have to negotiate and be smart about it. It’s like FAANG vs not haha.

      And the funny thing is that UCSF nurses were protesting over low pay a few months ago when they are one of the highest paid ones in the area. California also has strong nursing unions so work environment is nicer than some other states.

      Do you know anything about east coast NPs pay? My wife is finishing her doctorate in a year or so and keeps telling me she’ll make 150k base to start in the greater ny area but I have a hard time believing that. She claimed the same and said if she gets a private practice job can easily get 200k as well.
      Nov 27
    • U.S. Dpt. of Veterans Affairs / Other😃😄😃meh
      Quality of life is dependent on what you do. Most NPs work office hours and depending on your role, some might do 4 days a week with remote component and some do 8-4 M-F. There are NPs who do 12hr shifts so they have days off and can take vacation every month without using PTO.

      RNs work 8hr or 12hr shifts so depending on hospital and role so they can be working M-F or half of the week. If the hospital allows you to schedule when you work, as a RN you technically can have a vacation every month for a week.

      Quality of life is as flexible as you want it to be haha.

    • U.S. Dpt. of Veterans Affairs / Other😃😄😃meh
      East coast is a little funny. What kind of NP is she? Doctorate as in DNP or PhD? The DNP is pretty useless for clinical roles. But she can go into hospital admin with DNP and certain roles do pay that. And then she can climb up and make more.

      Since NY is also a high cost area, it might be plausible she will start around 150k. In the south east, they start around 100k and the south east is very very cheap to live. 100k in the southeast is equal to 180k in SF. Finding Np jobs in a good healthcare system as a new NP is also tricky in saturated markets. Hope she went to a good school with a good network.

I think the job is okay but theres much more human interaction involved with nontech roles and its draining if you are introvert like myself.

    I am a former tech sales guy who started and sold a few websites while slanging widgets and software and then decided to start a recruiting firm in a very niche area of cyber security. (Industrial Cybersecurity). I could go forever on job market insights, but feel free to PM me or ask any questions...

    As far as demand for my skills....well, my skills are pretty simple and the things we do well maybe aren't "skills" in the traditional sense. One we know our clients business and space better than most out there. We are true students of the space we work... Two, we don't focus on resume keywords or certs. Lastly, we fucking communicate. Good and bad news. Honestly.

    But other than that, I think we take a generally very proactive and transparent approach to talent acquisition in an extremely niche but booming part of Cybersecurity. We HUNT like hell but we spend the rest of our time actually talking to people instead of searching for keywords we like to see.

    As far as compensation, I will be a tad shy of $750k as Managing Partner and Founder, as I've been very fortunate to have earned the business of some "named account" clients most in here know, as well as some earlier stage companies who are killing it right now. Plus the space doesn't hurt not to mention so many absolutely terrible recruiters out there we get to replace.. : )

    But at the end of the day, I absolutely love my job. I humbly can say we've been blessed to have pick and choose who we partner with and for the time being it has worked out.

      As far as what Industrial Cyber guys make, it really depends on the role. Were you asking from a technical, sales, leadership perspective?

      And the background is varied, but on the technical side I'd say someone with a solid understanding of networking in general. Routers, switches, firewalls etc. But really more LAN than WAN. Someone who can get on the command line but not a Linux admin level. Just basic stuff. Security piece is definitely important. Doing things like network segmentation, understanding IDS, and experience working with different tools like Wireshark, Splunk, Nessus, etc. Then thing like the ability to get into an individual packet is crucial as well. Basically if you were given a set of PCAPs and set of questions, can you figure them out.

      And finally the unicorn would be someone who has experience in an industrial environment, and especially someone who knows the different OT or ICS protocols. Oil and gas, electric utility, production or manufacturing, water, nuclear, etc.

      And in regards to what our clients look for, we absolutely look at other folks other than engineers. The fact is this talent pool is so small and their is such a need, our clients have to train up to fill gaps.

      The ones with experience in security on the IT and OT side are, and I'm not exaggerating, commanding their own salaries right now. It's absolutely insane.

      So definitely a good time to get involved

    • Lol sorry, I'm on vacation and I fully intended to answer and then I...fell asleep.

      I'm a product designer for products that are data (usually B2B). No formal training, I fell into the profession because I was good at design while also understanding math, statistics/econometrics. I've discovered it's nearly impossible to find people who are good at design/UIUX who also understand abstract concepts and frameworks, stupidly hard to hire for this type of skillset. It's also sometimes difficult to find a good product fit in terms of keeping the work interesting because I find most data display problems are fairly easy to solve. I love what I do, but I wish I was more motivated to learn more actual math because I find it super interesting but so far I've been a combination of lazy/busy.

      Can you elaborate on “it's nearly impossible to find people who are good at design/UIUX who also understand abstract concepts and frameworks, stupidly hard to hire for this type of skillset.”?
      Nov 26
    • Sure -- people who are good at design are often not great at math -- they often don't understand how statistical or econometric models work with enough nuance to be able to design for products that incorporate them.

    Digital strategy consultant. 9 yoe. TC $145k. Love the project-based aspect of consulting - always learning and taking on new challenges. Demand for digital strategy skillset is definitely on the rise. So many great tech plays out there but it’s lots of hammers in search of nails... too often people/companies are buying into hype instead of starting with a business problem that needs solving. If you’re a business-minded techie with decent interpersonal skills and drive to do some real critical thinking, it can be a very fulfilling career path.

      @Tesla you're right, that's pretty much the definition of ux - no ux designer only "makes things pretty"

      But regarding consumer vs Enterprise UX, there are certain complexities that only arise in the latter. Like imagine designing Netflix but every screen the user sees can be modified to hide/show/move components around, oh and also it can be used to display and browse anything (cars shirts pets computers x-ray machines) not just movies. That's life in Enterprise.
