I was hired "per diem" with the mobile crisis unit (throughout Bergen County) and in the ER whenever "needed" (2001, while pursuing my MA in Clinical Counseling). Since 2007 I have achieved my MA and have applied multiple times since 2011 for reemployment . I have not received a response of any sort despite mentioning in my cover letter and in my resume, that I had already been employed by CarePlus prior to receiving my MA (yet, still in the process of working towards my MA at the time -2001- was employed... and currently exceed the standards and practical experience to exceed the duties of abovestated position.. ). I have continued to resend my updated resume with my extensive and exemplary crisis intervention and clinical psychiatric experiences with the adolescent/adult population ( references provided as requested). After patiently waiting for a response - any response- I will no longer attempt to offer my professional services to CarePlus despite my desire and confidence in, once again, becoming a valuable and experienced member as a mobile crisis interventionist and psychiatric emergency specialist. Their loss. Rude and unprofessional on their part as far as I am concerned (along with other professionals I have consulted with...) ; a simple "no thanks" would have gone a long way as far as "professional courtesy" goes....lesson learned - for both of us I hope.
