How do I get a job in the social service/non-profit field?
I want a job in the social service/non-profit field. The job could be childcare worker, counselor, overnight supervisor, aide or ??? I expect a pay cut from my current job but all that matters to me is that it pays at least $10/hr, 40hrs a week and offers benefits. I have a BA but not in psychology, social work or etc. I do plan to go back to school in a year or two. I don't have any related work experience. I have volunteer experience working with seniors, teens, child, homeless and people with illness. I have looked in newspapers and online. I have sent 11 resumes to different places. Only a few have responded. Except for one they say that I don't have any experience or education. Where do I look for a job? What do I say in my CL, resume or interview to show that I really want this job, am capable and etc. Is it possible to jump fields with no education or work experience?
