Working while enrolled in SLP Masters

Recommended Posts

Hi! I was wondering if anyone out there is working in the "speech-pathology" field while going to grad school. I'm located in Pennsylvania, a state where SLPA's doing exist. I'm curious what kinds of jobs are available to people who want to build their work experience in the field, but don't have a degree yet?

Thanks in advance!

My daughter had a work study job the first 3 semesters.  Then she had jobs at  elementary schools 2 days a week during her 4th semester.  She filled in for two SLPs who were out on medical leave.  Her Grad school posted the job listings.  The pay was 17.00 for the one and 20.00 for the other. She was hired through a private contracting company. She could have continued for the next semester, but she graduated early.

So I don't work necessarily in a related field of speech but I do work on campus. I work 15 hours a week as part of the federal work study program. I'm not the only one who works, my classmates do as well and so far its pretty manageable! Once I start my practicum I won't be able to work because it will be full time but for now its good! I have a friend that is a GA in the speech department and another at the writing center. They work the same number of hours as me and have a $400 stipend a month along with their tuition covered which is awesome. So definitely look for postings that are up on the school's job site.

You could always try to do a Graduate Assistantship. You'd have to apply but it would be a good option!
