New job income update - this surprised me

June 30th, 2017 at 03:20 pm

So my new job at urgent care pays a lot better than my old job in private practice. I knew that. That isn't the surprising part.

What surprised me is that now that I know the date that I'll be leaving the practice (9/30), I did an income projection for the year.

If I only work 20 hours/week at urgent care from 10/1 to 12/31 and don't pick up any extra shifts, I will still make $26,880 more in 2017 than I made in 2016.

My goal is to shoot for 12 hours/week extra for a total work week of 32 hours. If I can manage that, I'd earn about $45,000 more than last year. And if I can't always get an extra 12 hours, I'll still be in good shape which is nice.

I've been working a lot of hours (bare minimum of 43 and often 47 or 51) so I'm looking forward to a lighter schedule. Just this past week I worked 7 days in a row. A lot of stuff outside of work has gotten ignored because of my schedule. It will be nice to have time again to do things like yard work and car care and other stuff. And be making more money at the same time. Not a bad deal.
