Still won't let me add a picture...
I just looked online at some job stuff. There's two jobs available in Assertive Community Treatment. One at the location I did my practicum at, one at the other one. Oh how much I want those jobs. Either of them, I'd go for support worker or service coordinator. I'm qualified for both of them, but really only have enough experience for support worker, except I did a practicum there learning all about being a service coordinator. So, I don't know whether or not I want to apply. I mean, it can't hurt, right?
Here's why not though. I told my current job I'd be there at least a year, I like my current job, I'm building repore with staff and clients, I fit in etc... But, if I went back to the old PACT office, I'd already have a repore with staff and clients, and a longer relationship with them then I had with the clients I see now. It'd stop being a conflict of interest for my volunteer position too as I don't see nearly as many. Getting into PACT would have me doing government work, and I could do it for a long time. It'd look great on my MSW applications. And getting a service coordinator position...wow, it's be a "real" social work job and I'd actually make enough money to afford a car - which I would need for the position anyway. Which is unfortunate, I hate driving, I don't want to by a car.
I shouldn't have looked. I should have just left well enough alone. I'm happy now. Why change things? Why mess with something that works? I would like to work in assertive community treatment though. But I'm scared if I go back things won't look quite as rosey.
