I am really interested in this case manager job. I went for an interview on Wendsday and they told me they would get back at me in a week or two. Anyways I think the interview went real well just because I have some experience working as a residential counselor in a group home. When they asked questions I felt confident in knowing how to answer it and I really showed my enthusiasm for the work. There are a couple of full time positions and part time they are seeking to fill. They said I was the third person they had interviewed and they had some more people to still interview. They gave me a tour and introduced me to the people who work there by my name and all. Do you always introduce the person who is being interviewed to everyone or should I take it as a good sign?
I am a 26 year old guy and am starting a job in a few weeks as an Aging Case Manager. The job is mostly within the agency but there is some traveling involved. I have my drivers license but I am extremely nervous about driving. I am terrible with directions which is important to getting to the homes of clients. The office part I can handle but the driving is really getting to me. It is almost making me ill. Everyone tells me to just get out there and drive which will help relieve nervousness. I know I will get a lot of backlash for this but I need some advice.
I am thinking of applying for a job as a "claims case manager," and am wondering if this is the same thing as an aadjuster or different. Thanks.
Is being a case manager a hard job? What does it take to be a good case manager?
I am graduating in January with an associate's degree in human services which has a concentration in social work and I don't know what my next move should be because I still don't know what I want to do in life because I don't want to be a social worker but I feel like human services is the right field for me but I don't know what else there is to focus on within the major because I can't seem to find any entry-level jobs for my associate degree and all the human services jobs that I am finding are all social worker or case manager jobs. I have delayed going to a four year school soon after I graduate because I don't know what I want to major in and I don't know if it would be best to just get a bachelor's in human services or just change my major to something else all together. I have thought about wanting to become a teacher at a preschool or daycare center but I am afraid to change my major when I am this close to graduating I just don't know what to do anymore please help me!!
I just recently got a new job, and got on food stamps about two months prior while unemployed. I currently receive 200 dollars a month, the most one person can get for themselves. I should be grossing between 1k and 1.3k a month. I recalled being told that just under 1.2k a month would call for a change in benefits. Should I notify my case manager now or wait until June, when I am up for review?
I am currently a case manager/social worker at a non-profit social services agency. I have hopes of becoming a supervisor someday. Can someone give me an estimate of a supervisor salary in this field? I tried to Google it, but it kept giving me salaries of RN case managers rather than the social services one I kept trying to specify.
What concentrations do I need to become a case manager Do I need to just have B.A. or do I need a major in Pyscholgy and a concentration and if I do which would be best in your opinion.
I will have a BS in Sociology (Criminology) in December 2007. I have been job hunting and have some decent prospects, and I want to move to PA upon graduation, but if anyone had any pointers or suggestions I would be very thankful. I don't have very much experience, just a 3 month internship and a 6 month 'mentor' program that I was involved with. I don't expect much money but I am really passionate about this and am fearful about finding a job in this field when I graduate. Seems everyone wants people with a lot of experience.
Any case managers out there? I would be willing to hear what you did in order to get your job! Are there any classes I should look into taking to help boost my chances?
What can I do with a BS degree in Psychology with little experience? Preferably in mental health, not that marketing/customer service stuff.
I'm aware that my options are limited, but where do people like me even start? All of the mental health positions I've looked at so far want at least 1-3 years of experience. I can't just become a youth counselor, case manager, or psychiatric technician overnight. It's hard to get a research assistant job at a university. So far, I've spent 3 months volunteering at a psychiatric hospital and work shadowing under a Clinical Psychologist. I currently have a part-time job assisting people with developmental disabilities in personal care (ex: changing diapers). But you only need a high school diploma to do that. I really want to do something in mental health or social work at the BS degree level.
By the way, I'm going to graduate school for a Masters degree in Social Work this Fall, so I also want something that can help prepare me for my internships. My long-term career goal is to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Most people in my program have at least 2-3 years of experience in social work already. This program expects you to start your internship right away. How do I begin to build up counseling/therapy skills?
Any suggestions? I live Raleigh, NC. Thanks, I really really appreciate it...
@monique: I will be a full-time student, so I'd like to work part-time during college. I get the sense that a lot of people are able to do this (more like they have to).
I'll spend at least 20 hrs a week doing internships for two years. It seems that most other programs teach you foundation in social work before starting your internships, but here you begin internships immediately in the first semester. I obviously want this, but I'm looking to prepare myself a little more in the next 4 months, both financially and experience-wise...
Until college begins in the fall, I can work full-time. My mornings and evenings are wide open. I'm having a hard time finding those entry-level jobs in mental health, though... Psychiatric technicians only need a HS diploma, but I fall completely short of the 1-year experience requirement. I'd go for that if I could.
I currently work a case manager for a non-profit organization. I am no longer interested in direct service, and decided to go back to school for a degree in business. I am half way through my MBA program, however, I am finding it very hard to find entry-level jobs in business (of any kind) with past experience in social services. I need advice on how to approach the job-search in this situation, as I am focused on changing career paths.
I'm getting my bachelors in psych bc i love it, and then a minor in business bc i figure knowing business can help in any job. I am currently a social services tech at a dialysis center so im directly working with the social worker and case manager. What kind of options would i have after i graduate? Also i dont mind goin on to get a masters either. I just need some ideas.

I want to get a Masters in Health Administration, but can't seem to find any job listing for a person with the credential. I mostly find RN case managers which require you to be an RN. Where are the job listings for someone with this credential?
Can I even get any jobs? i know with a bachelors one can work as a case manager or advocate at a nonprofit agency, but is it realistic to be able to have a job related to psych while still working on the bachelor's degree?
I'm currently a volunteer on a crisis line at a domestic violence agency in which I'm getting clinical experience but what I'm referring to in my question is actual paid work while still *not* done with my b.a.
I'm looking to change jobs, I am starting to get bored with the job I am currently at and looking to find something new. I have the qualifications for being a Case Manager but don't know how much they make annually. Would it be worth leaving a state job (I live/work in Virginia) to transfer into a city job? Thanks.
I was a health care rep. in Florida and case managers were quiting their jobs and taking in elderly. The ex-case managers would fill a home with patients and make a considerable amount of money. I live in Ohio and was wondering if a friend could do this here. Any help is appreciated and needed.
My new job will entail using my skills as Office Manager, Senior Paralegal and Marketing Manager/Coordinator. My boss recommended Office Manager, Senior Case Manager but I don't know. Suggestions?
I am a case manager for homeless youth. I have a client who was homeless and has now applied for a job where they do drug testing. He claims that he is not a habitual user and only used twice in 1 month. The last use was one week ago. Should he be concerned the drug test will come up positive?
I want to become an international adoption social worker or case manager, but i don't know where to start. I want to build profiles of children and families, and i want to find families for children.
