Was something omitted before or after “prestigious”?
Answer from a Native speaker
Yes, in this case, she shortened this sentence and omitted the word "it's". So the full sentence here would be "it's not as prestigious, but it's still a job". It's common in spoken English to leave out the pronoun "it" at the beginning of a sentence. This is because "it" is already implied, and speakers get lazy and start to shorten sentences. Here's a few examples where this may occur: Ex: "Pretty sunny outside today." Ex: "Starting to get dark, I should get home."
