I want a job in a hospital how do I get it?
I have a masters in social work, but I am a mom and don't ever want to be a social worker again. I'd like to be a wheel chair transporter in a hospital. I'd like the chance to still help people but the responsibility is just confined to that patient in that moment. I am over qualified for the job, but can I still get it? Well, I have a special needs child and have more than enough 'social work' kind of advocating and planning I have to do for him and our state support group. I feel done in that area of my life. I don;t want to have that kind of line of work anymore. I also have 2 other typical children and just want the job to have light conversation and quite honestly no paperwork and little minimal responsibility. ALso I live in Alabama and there are very few sw jobs as there are very few programs. But yes I completely see how it looks like I am wasting a career. and ... it would give me benefits in addition to my husbands and a chance to save more for retirement.

Most of the patients are older, so you wouldn't be dealing with child abuse and neglect (if that's what you're wanting to get away from... More

That's like having an MBA and managing a fast food joint. Why not go back to school and get an RN degree or something of that nature?
