Are you Just starting out as an SLP, shifting fields or settings, transitioning, or just looking for a new role? Polishing up your resume and interview skills is a must. In this episode, you’ll hear tips and suggestions for different scenarios from an SLP who has literally made it her business to help other SLPs do their best in applying to, and getting the roles they want.

Discussion & Reflection Questions

  1. When was the last time you updated your resume? Is it current and focussed on all of the skills you can bring to a role?
  2. Do you tailor your resume to each position you apply for? Think about how you can do this.
  3. How do you research the people and organizations you are applying for roles with? Think about how you can incorporate that knowledge of the organization and culture in your application and interview process.
  4. What interview prep do you do before you go? Think about ways to answer questions,  build your self-confidence and show why you think you are the person for the position.
  5.  How and when do you follow up with employers after an interview? Think about ways you can continue to showcase who you are and what you can bring in your follow up.

 “Really get to the core of why you want this position, and what aligns with the research that you’re doing for the position, and kind of merge those two things together. So, research, research, research!”

Demi Fritz,  M.S., CCC-SLP

Demi Fritz, is a speech-language pathologist from the Chicago-land area turned resume writer.

She  started SLP Resume a few years ago because there was a lack of information about resumes, interviewing, and the job search process for speech-language pathologists. She started connecting with employers and professors to find out what they wanted to see in a resume. The information she collected helped her create resume formulas and templates that completely differ from anything you will find on the internet. 

Demi founded SLP Resume, which has grown over the years and now has six people on the team. Every year they help aspiring SLPs find their dream job or get into graduate school.

Mattie Murrey Tegel, MA, CCC-SLP, L, CPC, CLSC


Medical Speech-Language Pathologist and Founder of Fresh SLP

Mattie Murrey-Tegels is the founder and SLP behind Fresh SLP and The Missing Link for SLPs Podcast. She’s been “in-the-trenches” as a medical SLP around the world for over 25 years and now an Assistant Professor for 3 years. She is thrilled to be adding this dream of a podcast because paying her experiences forward is something she is very passionate about. If you ask her patients and students, one thing they will remember is how much she loves her job! She may not look like it but she is a huge introvert and when she is not actively working as an SLP, she is almost always reading, writing (writing over 1,000,000 words a year), or listening to amazing Chicago Blues bands. She also loves being outdoors and definitely enjoys soaking up the sun at her home in Minnesota, where warm and sunny days can be limited. She’s ridden motorcycles for many years, raced sled dogs, hiked huge mountains yet she cherishes the quiet moments of climbing into a hammock to nap or timeless conversations with friends and family.

The Missing Link for SLPs podcast and Fresh SLP is her legacy, giving back to a career that has so richly rewarded her.
