I’m afraid I don’t have any specific advice for you regarding Child Life work since I’m not sure what a Child Life Assistant is.

In terms of your resume, try to tailor it around the job description. I would highlight your roles working with children (especially teaching) and how the skills and experiences you have relate to the Child Life field. Make sure you enclose a cover letter addressed to the hiring manager (if known) conveying your enthusiasm for the field and your educational background.

Good luck!

I did this path in college. Unfortunately, CLS jobs are so far and few between that I could not find a job.

So I am now a social worker.

@MrsMaskatoBe:  I am on the path to becoming licensed now. Luckily, I live in Houston right next to the Texas medical center so there are lots of opportunities for child life jobs! I have considered switching to social work though.

@Sarahlace:  Don’t do it! Haha.

That is a great place to be! We live by OU Childrens, but there is only one internship spot per semester. I applied to Indiana’s Peyton Manning Childrens, Cook’s Children and Miami…but it was so competitive!

 

Good luck sweetie!!

@MrsMaskatoBe:  It is so competitive!! This is my last week at my practicum at Texas Children’s Hospital and I start the process of applying for internships shortly…all while planning a wedding, too!! Most of the interns I’ve talked to applied to around 10-15 hospitals and only got interviews at a couple, it’s insane.
