You are in a position to make or break your future in audiology! If you
have a background in retail, then you know how important it is to "sell"
a product to a consumer. Just put yourself in the role of the product.
You must sell yourself. But, don't sell yourself short. I went through
the exact same situation with my wife and, I'll admit, it was tough for a
while. However, I learned to sell myself and my skills and it has paid
immense dividends. If you feel you are "settling" for a position, you
may be letting your self down in the log run. The job market is as much
political as anything else. Talk the talk and walk the walk, even if you
are uncomfortable doing so. The better you get at selling yourself, the
more doors will be open up to you.
