Job Description -Page of a Career Journal

I have been so focused on the schedule and balancing this new life, I forgot why I applied for this position. Therefore, it should go without saying, I’m losing excitement for this opportunity. I pulled out the job description. The words that stood out to me, were interventions, advocacy, talk therapy, and consulting. These are the words that speak to me being a clinical social worker. The first two remind me I enjoy meeting patients where they’re at, helping them discover their journey to recovery and a return to their baseline, and helping them to maintain the greatest level of independence.  The word consulting reminds me I enjoy teaching, problem solving, and learning new skills. When I pause and ask myself, “What is it that you want to gain from this position?” I think of Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” –

Always save your job description; they are good reminders of why you sought out a new opportunity. They are helpful during reviews and seeking raises, as they showcase your expanded duties, and often provide opportunities of growth.
