Gary’s Answer

Me again :) I used to be a Case Manager for a youth/adult career and training program. Basically a big part of my job was social services/work. This was one of my favorite jobs because of the work environment...I was never in the same place all day long, I would either be in an office at a desk or out in the school meeting with teachers/students or in the career center working with clients on finding a job or travelling around the city to meet with clients and job supervisors for our youth employment program. Sometimes I would go to the police dept to do background checks and to the family assistance office to do checks on clients assistance payments received.
It was never a dull day in this field and I really enjoyed it...hope that helps...Good luck!

Thank you!! Alexus T.

  • Social Psychologist: offer these services in prisons, social resocialization centers, NGOs, poor communities, community centers;

  • Social Worker: Municipal or State Social Assistance; Health Departments; bodies of the public or private social welfare; Of children rehabilitation centers; Penitentiary; Association of neighborhoods and / or residents; NGOs; Council for the Rights of the Child, Adolescent and People Seniors.
