Clinician, Newport Beach, CA - February 22, 2016
Although intimidating at first, this job is one that I grew to love. I had and still have no interest in going into education. This job started as a summer job during college and eventually extended into something that I did part-time throughout college. There is nothing more rewarding intrinsically than seeing the progress that clients make and having fun with them along the way. There are a lot of HR hoops to jump through as with any company, and it can be frustrating as hours tend to fluctuate seasonally. There were complaints from males in the company that only women hold high positions and are given promotions, but from my observation (as a male) I found that promotions are merit based, and any perceived discrimination is just a virtue of more women in the job to begin with. The hardest part of the job is that some days feel very long and hard, and it can be hard to teach their methods- especially when being observed by a supervisor as is often the practice. All in all, this is definitely a job worth taking.
