I'm in the SLP field (Speech-Language Pathology) & I just recently graduated. In my field, you don't really have to apply or "pound the pavements" applying. There's numerous employment companies out there nationwide who I haven't even given my name or phone # to who call me, even while still in grad school to try to place me in a job. (I already worked as an SLP for 3 yrs already, so I'm not totally new to how the job goes.) So, another one of those companies called me a couple weeks ago. I wasn't looking now, in fact, I wanted to take a breather & just planned on looking in May/June, but, since this lady called me, I took her up on her offer & I should be having an interview this week. This district is year-round, which I don't like at all, but hey, at the least, it's only a year & if I don't like it, I can try to get something else. Plus, even though I graduated, there's another thing to do called the CF (clinical fellowship) in which you have the job & get the full salary, but a mentor still helps you out. Guess I'll be starting work a LOT sooner than I thought!!! Waking up early & commuting will take getting used to again because for almost 2 yrs now, I've been doing other work that didn't involve that. What about you guys?
