At one point in my checkerboard career, I worked as a life coach in an ex-offender re-entry program. I had zero experience as a social worker but had been hired because of my career counseling experience. At least that’s what I was told. My friends had a different take: “They hired you because you had a pulse,” they said. No danger of a swelled head with my social circle.
Challenge accepted. 😊 Excellent piece as well!
