So shoot. Do you have anything you want to ask this newbie?
And don't you all overload me at once ;)
Until our next visit,
Is it everything you expected it to be? What has been the most rewarding experience so far? What iz your advice for other newbbies?
Great discussion topic!! For me, since I've been working in the field for awhile, I think I need to learn to not always be so negative, or set myself up to think something negative is gonna happen ;)
i want to know how did you get into this field. it's always fun to hear from people what led them to do what they do.
First of all, I love reading your blog. Plese keep writing! A question I have is how do you deal with older, more experienced workers who put you down? I'm in my 4th month of being a social worker and I deal with so much crap from seasoned workers daily! They chuckle at things I say like it's so cute and will give each other looks before they answer my question.
What kinds of things do you recomend new workers to invest in? Comfy shoes? lol
did you go to school majoring in social work?
Hi my name is Katie and I'm a sophmore and thinking about social work. What do you think te kind of peoples need to be to be doing your job? And what is your job? By the way I liked your earlier blog about a day in tge lyfe. I like reading those kind of stuff and am wondering if you could do something like that again. Thanks! Bai!
i have been follwoing your blog from day one and never commented but i do have questions so here they are: as a social worker, what can you can't live without? And what textbooks would you recommend us students to keep? do yu ever use yours or just seel it?
Hi! I discovered your blogs while I was researching "The Truth About Being A Social Worker". It is nice to see someone being real about such a difficult occupation. I am about to start on my bachelors for Social Work. I have researched the pros and the cons of this degree; The cons, at this time, seem to be outweighing the pros. I hear that it is rewarding when you are able to help someone, but there is a price to pay; the price is you becoming a hollow shell of a human being. Something else is that you don't receive near enough compensation for the work you undertake. All of this is causing me to question my path in life. I had planned on joining the Peace-corps after I received my Bachelor's, but I feel very lost right now. Could you possibly have some advice to give me? No pressure. :-)Blessed be!
