Re: [Histonet] Temporary Histology Position Open (South Dakota State University)

From:"Ron Martin"


From my experience I can say that vet. pathology does not pay the same as
human path. Also this is advertised as a technician position with no formal
education or certification. I can also say from experience that many
universities do not pay well at all. I'm sure that there is someone out
there who cannot pass the HT exam, has no formal education and has little
experience who will fulfill their requirements. You must also consider
geographical location when considering salaries. Just my two cents worth.
