Sometimes I become so extremely wrapped up in food headlines, reading about new restaurants, and perfecting my critiques that I forget to remind you and myself that my main career is that of a social worker. I now have my license in social work (LMSW) and I feel very proud of that fact; it took me six years plus to get to this point. Although I may not be currently employed, my passion remains to help people with disabilities; in general I feel strongly about working to help those who are vulnerable, oppressed, and/or underserved. I find it interesting: you never know where life will take you, the more I search for employment the more flexible and open to working with new populations I become. As someone who was born and raised in New York City, I know how big this town can seem and how there can be many many people applying for the same jobs. What can I do? 1. I shal continue the job hunt until I win the employment game. 2. I promise to stay positive despite foreseeing upcoming challenges due to issues with the job market and economy. 3. Eat more chocolate? Sorry, I didn’t mean that. (By the way, I didn’t write this post ahead of time, it just represents some issues which have been on my mind.)
I really dislike complaining on this blog so I think at this point I’ll stop while I’m ahead. Time for a shameless plug: if you know of anyone who is looking to hire a social worker in New York City, please tell them to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org Good night world, and happy holidays!
