What do I like most about being a job coach? Just about everything. In the 3.5 years I've worked in the field I've encountered just one coworker whom I disliked and but a couple of clients who I truly could not tolerate. The job isn't hard once you get the hang of it and the hours are unbeatable.
Job security, however, is a horse of a different color. Staff is always at risk of losing their job. The rules are written for the benefit of the cients and management has all the power. A job coach can be--and often is--suspended, investigated and ultimately fired for things like hearsay or a feamle client's fabrication of a sexual encounter.
