The Job Search – Where Do I Start?

Steve Kinkead, SLP

I recently spoke to a group of speech pathology students at the Nebraska Speech, Language and Hearing Association’s annual convention. I tried to provide a perspective about resume development and the job search process knowing that is an important topic weighing on the minds of these students.

I list the nuts and bolts but most importantly I tried to give them food for thought in considering their first position as a professional. The process I outline below is geared toward ours as a contract therapy services provider but is applicable across most settings.
