How can I be noticed in the Human Service field without the work experience?2Ebone2012-10-09 04:12:02
Hi, I'm fairly new to the Tampa Fl, area. I've lived here for almost six months and I am looking for an opportunity to start a career as a child / family counselor at a nonprofit organization. While I have the much needed experience that many organizations require, I have the dedication, passion and drive to make a difference in the lives of others. I have also education, a 4yr degree in Education / Psychology, as well as my own life experiences to support me. MedlinePlus I'm well aware of that prior experience is an important factor when it comes to social worker positions because there will never be a day of repetitive procedure, each case is different and so are the needs of each individual. I am willing to learn all hands on if given a chance. I firmly believe that when a person has a passion to do something, the individual achieve whatever he / she intends to do and will do an amazing job on it, with or without experience. There is a difference between a job and a passion, and it shows through the work. The real rewards of a career in the field of human services is being able to help others who need help and guidance. By helping these people excel not only are we starting a new cycle of progress, but we are also giving our communities, and this is exactly what I want to be part of it. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The problem seems to be running into lately is that I am not getting any response to the posts I've been applying to. I think it might be due to the fact that I have no experience of previous case management on my resume. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If anyone can offer any advice, guidance or tips of things I can do to get noticed and stand out, please share. All answers are greatly appreciated. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Serious advice or comments please! MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Thanks in advance!

Social Work or Nursing.. or anything within the medical field?2lattane2012-11-04 18:35:02
After this semester , I will be a junior in college . Right now I'm majoring in Social Work . At first , I was in this field since my plan was to be a counselor . I planned to get my Masters and my clinical license to counsel people . Lately , I've been doubting that decision because I do not feel the drive or passion to advise people. I do not like psychology and psychotherapy methods . It just does not sound appealing to me . I want to be in some kind of professional help . I've always liked the sciences - especially the human body and the study of disease. I was considering nursing because you get to treat and care for a diverse group of people , you get to spend time with people as they heal or pass away, and you have to be directly involved in solving problems . I'm a little tired of the needles and blood and terror to mess up in some way that could harm the patient , but I guess that helps nursing school that I can trust and get more to see any blood and other fluids the case body . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Any suggestions ? Should I look into other fields ?
