When to use units of kJ/mol vs kJ?

I'm a little confused on when to use units of kJ/mol in the answer. I know that if the question is asking for standard enthalpy of formation that you must provide the answer in kJ/mol, but when else would we use these units?

You will have to use the units KJ/mol whenever you are asked to calculate the enthalpy of a reaction for 1 mole of a reactant/product.
