QUICKWRITE FOR HUMAN SERVICES 300
I have always been interested in the role of Human Services in private and public agencies. Taking the Human Services 300 class will provide me with the overview of key components that are a part of Human Services that I have not been exposed to. This will help me determine if I should pursue a Human Services Certificate.
As a student of the Human Services 300 class, I expect to gain additional knowledge of how private and public agencies utilize Human Services, the types of positions used in Human Services and the educational and prior work background requirements for the positions, how extensively is counseling utilized, and the level of communication skills needed to work in the Human Services field. My goal is to determine what career aspect of Human of Services is most suitable for me.
Working in various jobs, I have acquired effective communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to work with people dealing with various issues, and the ability to address and solve problems. I have had the opportunity to work in several positions that involved the Human Services aspect. I worked for Social Security as a Service Representative that involved the use of interpersonal skills, proper communications, and case work. As a Section 14c Specialist for the Department of Labor, I work to ensure that workers with disabilities were treated properly in the workplace. I believe my work background that involved private and public agencies will allow me to share experiences on the importance of interpersonal skills.
