Day 102 - LCSW Supervision and Job Interview!

Friday, July 12, 2013

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.

Deborah, MSW

    Deborah,

    That is awesome....they would be foolish not to hire you...Wishing you all the best on the interview....

    Hmm MH side...my Mom was diagnosed with Manic Depression/Schizophrenia when I was 6 - 35 years ago...she lives in a facility here in California......

    I know the work will be a challenge but if anyone can do it, you can....

    Good luck on your interview and your career decisions! Be sure to evaluate your personal safety but don't let it be a roadblock to making the best decision for you. Perhaps on those late PM shifts you can find a co-worker to exit and walk to your car/transportation together. Get a whistle and wear it around your neck! If you do get approached or accosted, just blowing the whistle can cause your antagonist to have second thoughts! emoticon
