Why did you decide to be a caregiver? What inspired you??

Hi! My name is Andrea and I am doing research on caregivers for my Health class. I would appreciate it if you answered these questions the best you could. Thank you! 1)How many years of college did you need to go through? What other programs, courses, and clubs did you join or do? 2)What jobs did you work before you became a caregiver? What did you think of them? 3)How can I decide if I want to get a PH.D. in this field? 4)Did you have to pivot and go back to school at a later time? 5)Did you need to shadow another professional in the field before becoming a caregiver? 6)Was there a subject you struggled with during your school years? 7)What skill sets did you learn or gain while being in this profession? 8) Why did you choose a career in medicine? Why did you choose this specialty? 9)Do you regret going through the years of schooling? 10) What skills would you recommend someone to have before trying to get into this field? 11) What keeps you motivated?

Does anyone specialize in building homes for special needs/ disabilities?

I want to specialize in the accessible side of housing. Making structures up to code for people who need ramps, elevators, railings, etc. I am wondering if there is someone out there who does this kind of work. How early did you tell people you wanted to specialize in architecture and how did you do it? #Architecture #Specialties #Disabilities

What major is best for becoming a rehabilitation psychologist?

I am interested in becoming a rehabilitation psychologist (working with people with learning and/or physical disabilities). However, I am unclear if a degree in social work or a degree in psychology is best for creating a path to my goal. I know you it seems like psych is the answer, but I've read info that says entry level positions can be obtained with a general social work degree and general psych degrees don't seem to offer enough options to build a specialty like disability studies (but some social work degree programs do). I am having a hard time figuring out a path to this profession. #psychology #social-work #disabilities

If I have aspirations that aren't exactly common, especially because they have a stigma around them, how can i make sure that I'll be taken seriously?

I want to work in architecture and design, but specialize in making public spaces accessible for people with disabilities. Although this is losing some of its stigma, it's still not exactly common. Whenever I talk about it, people seem uninterested, even if I show them how important it is to me. #disabilities #accessibility

I am very new in my new career (I am changing it at 40). My networking is really involving only one company. How do I expand my network to get more job opportunities that are not necessarily in my field of choice, but will benefit?

I have a lot of paralegal experience, just from earning my B.A. I would like to advance into Homeland Security, but I am finding it hard to meet the job qualifications for a position in this field because of my age and my inability to join the Army or other national force. Was my education pointless, who will utilize it? #human-resources #government #homeland-security #disabilities #talent-recruiting #age-in-the-workplace

What are some ways that I can get more money for college?

I'm enrolled in a liberal arts college for the fall and it is pretty pricey! I have a little bit over half of my tuition paid for by the scholarships that my school has given me.. I have only heard back from one of the scholarships in my area that I have applied for. I have cerebral palsy so it is hard for me to maintain a part time job because most of them are physical and on your feet all the time. I hope to apply for disability soon but that still leaves a lot of tuition to pay for. #college #money #scholarships #disabilities #disability
