6 Tips for a Great Cover Letter

Your cover letter shouldn't just be a generic template that rehashes your resume. It's your first chance to tell employers about yourself, so use the opportunity to highlight what makes you unique, how you can make an impact, and why you want to work for this specific employer.

How to Write a CV

What's the difference between a resume and a CV? They vary based on focus, format, length, and purpose. In the United States, the CV is used almost exclusively when pursuing an academic position; it reflects the developments in a faculty–researcher's career and should be updated frequently.

Resume Writing Strategies

Audiologists and speech-language pathologists searching for jobs—make sure your resume makes you stand out from other applicants. Write a custom resume for each job you apply for, choose the right resume format, highlight your strengths and goals, and pick the right font size and type.

Working Abroad

Before packing your bags to work abroad, you need to make sure you're prepared. Find tips on researching locations, learning about a country's professional standards and requirements, making sure you have the proper documentation, finding a job, and making personal arrangements for when you're away.

Evaluating Compensation Packages

Sometimes, the highest salary isn't the best overall offer. Learn how benefits packages can add up to significant value for employees. Use this checklist to ask potential employers about health insurance, deferred income benefits, disability, leave time, work hours, professional development, and more.

Determining Salary

Your salary is affected by more than just your work and qualifications—market and organization factors also can influence your pay. Understanding supply and demand for labor, geographic location, employment setting, organizational profitability, and more can help you negotiate better wages.
