Monday I have an interview for an externship with a substance abuse counselor. I have my AAS degree in Human Services that I got in 2010, but haven't been able to use yet, since I had to take a year off to fight cancer and all. But I am working again at the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter, so I have 2 years experience there, then a year off, and about 3 months into my 3rd year. It is a volunteer to hire position, but that will give me more experience also. I also have some experience as a drug testing technician and a medical assistant before I got sick. I was a delivery driver for over 10 years, and went back to school in 2008, to try and change from a job to a career, but then cancer got in the way. Now I am hoping to continue down my new path, and hope to be a case worker someday:)
I am very nervous about this interview, but when I write down what all I have done in the past 4 or 5 years, it doesn't sound too bad:)
Wish me luck!
