I have my bachelors in speech pathology and have been employed as a SLPA multiple times so I pretty much know what my time and education is worth. But, I have been filling out more random applications these days because there are very few SLPA jobs available here in lovely California… And as these applications become less and less like my degree, it is hard to know what to put when they ask for your salary requirements.
What is a lot of money and what is too little? How do I figure out the right amount to not get thrown out for asking too much or get taken advantage of by asking for too little?
Lets be real, you already know what you are going to pay me if I get the job. At least a salary range. There is no real reason for you to try and trick me…it’s just rude. Its like when a teacher gives you a test to see how much you can remember versus how much you actually learned. RUDE.
Anyways, thats my rant/confusion. Haha.
You know what else I find rude? When you make me give you a resume AND then also make me fill out an application with all of my work history on it (that is already on my resume).
Ok end of rant. Thanks for listening. 🙂
Here is a cute puppy photo to try and make up for this.
PS. Hopefully there was some humor in this.
