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?
I work in the nursery at my church and its been about 4 or 5 years now. Im making a resume for a class and don't know what is appropriate to put under childcares worker under the "experience" tab.
It looks like this
Child Care Worker 2008-present
you know like strengths and what you do with the children and how you would phrase it to sound professional
Obviously there are a lot of good childcare workers & teachers etc out there but...
It has dawned on me that there are a few too many idiots who feel its okay to push their racist views out into the open when children are around, that feel it's okay to ignore certain childrens needs just because they don't like them or they don't like the parents...
I've heard about it, possibly because I have a close relative who has a social worker job, and when I did childcare, I took care of a handful of children who were in the system or came from poor, neglectful households (from what I heard).
Whatever happened to go good ol' parenting and having your own biological children?
Yes I understand the reasons why children go into foster care or are set up for adoption. I understand for some people adoptions the only way they should have a kid. From the prospective of a birth parent, why don't more parents just suck it up, and do it. I mean if you are teen who got pregnant either get an abortion ( I know it's controversial) or suck it up and realize you need to take care of this human being. And for the parents who do drugs and commit other crimes, that lifestyle needs to stop once you have a child.
So I am about to graduate high school and I want to go to college for a degree in human services, which I feel would give me a pretty broad range of career options since I'm not 100?ositive yet. But my top choices I have been considering are childcare worker, substance abuse/addiction counselor, or a personal care aide. I am pretty positive all of these career choices could fall under the human services category, but I'm not sure? Could anyone tell me for sure? Thanks :)
I am about to start work experience in a childcare centre and i need some help to develop strategies to overcome this. please help!
Parents- What makes you comfortable when dropping your child off to daycare? What do you look for when choosing a childcare facility?
Daycare workers- Any tips and advice for working with the children?
Any information appreciated...starting a new job! Thanks in advance!
Just recently I took a career test in my school, that told me I would be best as someone that would work with children. But in the state of Maryland, becoming a childcare worker pays about 23k a year. I am 16 years old, I feel like I only have a year or so to figure out what I want to do in college. I just want to know if I live off 23k a year comfortably?
Its hard to find something I want to do, should I try another career path?
Im a little worried.
I'm in an Early Childhood program. Something I have been wondering for a while is what would you do if you came to pick your child up and saw a male teacher at the preschool (since, stereotypically, it's been a female job). I can't explain it but I feel great being around Children so the answer won't steer me one way or another.
I'm in year 10 and I'm doing my first lot of work experience and I need some jobs ideas. I'm good at design and I'm good at maths. I need four realistic things I can put down.
I am applying for jobs at after school programs. Interviews make me really nervous, so I would like to be as prepared as possible. What are some questions I can expect to be asked?
I just graduated from high school and I really need a job, preferably a good one. The current economy is making it rather difficult to find a good job, especially for someone with virtually no work experience such as myself. Any suggestions?
So i need to know some jobs that involve working with children, the younger the better, that are not medically related.
In a year I'll have my Associates in Human Services. I was wondering what type of entry-level jobs I can do.
I'm in my second year of my course and now is the time to make serious decisions about my future e.g. do i want to go to university or full time work. I would like to know what careers i can get into with a level 3 childcare diploma e.g. nannying, nursery work... any others? I cant find any info anywhere on the internet :(
My friend owns a child care childcare facility. The majority of her workers take two ten minute smoke breaks during the day. They have to leave the premises. Is this legal? i didn't think so.
Im 16 and that is the after-school job i really want. i live in wisconsin, but in general do you know any that would hire @ 16? i want to work with kids. thnx.

I've worked in a nursery for work experience, I live in South east London, where can I find a good job and what are good jobs ?
I currently work at an Early Learning Childcare center. I would like to find a job that helps abused or homeless kids. I would even be fine with a job at a woman shelter or something.
I am having a lot of trouble finding one mostly because I only have a diploma and basic STARS training. Most jobs I've found need at least a BA degree.
I've looked on the DSHS website but still didn't find anything to these limitations. If you have ANY ideas or know any more information it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in anticipation.
Also, I would like to find a full time job.
