Let's say, your current job does not look promising, and you are planning whether to stay or not. Can you say:

"If being a medical transcriptionist can make me rich because of excellent pay, then I will definitely stay on this job, sadly its not.

Or

"If being a medical transcriptionist can make me rich because of excellent pay, then I would stay on this job, sadly its not.

In the above bold letters written, which is correct?, to make it grammatical...

You need to shift both tenses.

If being a medical transcriptionist could make me rich because of excellent pay, then I would definitely stay on the job, sadly it can not.

I think a little more revision is needed to make this really natural, though.

If I could get rich being a medical transcriptionist, I would stay on the job. Sadly, I can't.

or something like

If medical transcriptionsts were well-paid, I would stay on the job, but they are not.

  • You omited something, how about this, ''if medical transcriptionists were well-paid, which could make me rich, I would stay on the job, sadly, they are not.''
