310 – How I Chose My Employer (Part 1)

Jan 19, 2024

This episode is full of TRUTH BOMBS? For the past few years, I have heard podiatrists in Australia complain about a shortage of podiatrists and trying to employ a new graduate is becoming ever more difficult because of higher-than-average salary expectations and other crazy demands. 

Here’s the truth – your job ads are letting you down.

In this and next week’s episodes, I interview eight recent graduates (four per episode), all of whom have gained employment for 2024, and they openly share their thoughts about the podiatry employment landscape.

Part 1 Podiatry Guests:

  1. Tejus Menon
  2. Nigel Kelly
  3. Oli Jones
  4. Anonymous 

I asked six simple questions:

  1. Where did you look for podiatry job opportunities?
  2. Was there anything in an ad that immediately put you off?
  3. How many interviews did you have?
  4. If you rejected certain offers, why, and what made you say YES to the position you’re starting in 2024?
  5. What aspects of podiatry do you like most?
  6. Was money a deciding factor?

I concluded each interview by asking them to offer some advice to employers wanting to employ a new graduate in the future.

Make sure you don’t miss next week’s episode.

Do You Think Differently from the Average Podiatrist? 

If you do, I want to let you know you’re not alone, and most of my coaching clients feel the same way, which is why they chose to work with me over a larger cookie-cutter coaching company.

My coaching clients do not have big egos; they are quiet achievers and like to fly under the radar, but they do want to evolve their podiatry businesses into something special, something they can be proud of and say, “This is mine”.

If this sounds like you, we should talk.

After we talk, you will have more clarity on what is best for you and your business. 

“I was a frustrated business owner for five years until I started working with Tyson. He helped me transform my business in a matter of months, resulting in an instant increase in revenue and the ability to attract and retain top quality podiatrists. Over the past three and a half years, working with Tyson has changed my life drastically. I was able to take time off to start a family, triple my business revenue, and finally achieve work-life balance. I highly recommend Tyson to anyone who is looking for a business coach.”
