Today I went to my first LCSW (license clinical social worker) group supervision. This is for paid work of 3,000 hours in a social work type field, which I do work in right now. Twice a month, we all meet and discuss our jobs, ethics, exams, rules, etc...
This is an interagency meeting and for free!
I told the group that I work part time but pick up extra hours here and there but I am on the DD side whereas everyone else is on the MH side. DD is for developmentally delayed population and MH is for the mental health population. Now I am wondering if being on DD side is not giving me "legit" experiences required for MSW jobs outside the agency. Hmmmmm....
Anyway, I did not postulate that question but did stress that I want to switch to MH side. A participant commented that there is an opening in MH residential and he texted the contact person. So, I have an interview this coming Monday!
This is a full time position, working four 10-hour days. Shifts may be a mixture of 7-5 pm and 1-11 pm. My husband is very concerned since the residential MH facility is a multi-story structure of apartments.
Well, I am excited...and hopefully this will boost my career chances and I actually make a lot more than I do now.
