Q: What is it like working as an Assistant Social Worker?
Assistant Social Worker in Los Angeles:
I worked with mental health but an adult day care center, I thought I was going to work with seniors. However, an ADHC also has a population of physically, mentally and cognitively disabled population. There was an adjustment period but knowing that would have helped me research more into interacting with the disabled population.
Assistant Social Worker in Birmingham:
"I wish I had known I would have to work so much overtime."
I would inform new Assistant Social Worker's that they need to care about patients, dress professionally, have good writing skills, speaking skills and leave their phones in their pockets so they will be taken seriously.
