First of all, I want to apologize if this has been asked before. I am looking for some advice to help my good friend. She is an RBT for a year now and has experience for over 6 months. My question is that no matter how much she is trying there is not enough on her paycheck. She loves this field but how good is the profession when you can't pay the bills. I don't have much knowledge in this line so that's why I am posting this here.
I want to know how can you earn more if you like what you do. Yes, I understand experience is one. What about any advance certification that can give her bit of edge. I have been told that RBT Certificates are flooding the market, causing the avg salary to go down. more supply than demand scenario in sort of speak, is this true?
Any information would be helpful as I can see she is really passionate about her work but the earning factor is frustrating.
