Client Services Specialist (Current Employee), St. Louis, MO – February 24, 2013
Pros: the knowledge i continue to learn about the program i work for.
Cons: knowing more about the program than my coordinator.
My typical day at work is making appointments to renew, relocate or move-in clients into rental property of their chose. Talking and mailing information to present, past and potential landlords in regards to client's rent and lease terms. Documenting information into the computer and working with Outlook. Conducting home visits and home inspections.
At first, I knew nothing about the program I work for. After working a month, both (one being the coordinator) of the employees working with me quit. Within that month's time period, I learned enough to work independently and train the new employees, including the coordiantor. I learned the importance of team work.
I enjoy working with my co-workers, especially my past supervisor. The manager of the program gives goody bags for each holiday to all the staff in the department and have monthly birthday celebrations. I learned to work with clients that have varies disabilities and needs.
It is gratifying housing clients that have been homeless, and learning new information regularly.
I have not had a coodinator that is willing to learn as much as possible about the program and show leadership skills that would lead the program into success.
I have may good things regarding St. Patrick Center. I have appiled many times and just recently appiled for the Client Services Specialist. It's good to hear great experiences about the agency. Maybe something will happen:)
