A good friend of mine taught special education for many years, but is burned out on working in a classroom. He's 30 years old and the job search is going well, I don't think he wants to join the Coast Guard, but he's looking into it! He does a lot of volunteer work with kids and summer camps and the such and really has a passion for it, he just needs to get paid for!
I've helped other people find jobs, usually it turns out the industry has specific job boards that are great or has "secret codes" so to speak. Keywords that help you find the kind of job you would like.
Kind of as an add on consideration, how do you translate classroom experience into the more social services language? I hope that makes sense.
So how do we go about this? Where do we look? What do search for?
