This job enabled me to give back to the needy in my local community and gave me a great sense of pride
Pros: worldwide known organization
Cons: very low pay
Daily, I assessed and fulfilled clients' needs, ordered food and products, completed FEMA and HUD paperwork, recruited volunteers, dealt with clients, referred people to services, etc.
This was a very independent position with limited supervision, but required a lot of tenacity and dedication.
The hardest part of the job was not getting emotionally attached and being treated poorly by some clients; it was stressful and sometimes very sad.
I enjoyed helping others and taking charge and having a leadership role.
