@juneebee:  I am actually super jealous of your position, mainly the fact that it’s a desk job. I was a case manager that went out in the field and did some home visits, but I actually took clients out into the community. I had to take time off for personal reasons and lost my position. I can easily get rehired, but I am looking to come back to a position similar to what you were offered, mostly home visits. I’d love it if they had a desk position, I HATE the driving. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do. Some people like the ability to go out into the field and make their own schedule; I like a routine.

I have the same degree and also haven’t taken the NCE yet. It’s been very hard to find therapy jobs here without a license. I know someone at my work that was able to be supervised and get her LPC, but I was surprised because we don’t really do therapy with our clients. I’m not sure now that works, I haven’t looked into it yet.

I wish I liked field work! It just got to be too stressful for me! Good luck on making your decision.

For two years I did field work, then switched to the office. I recently put in my resignation. I cant handle being in the office from 9-5 (how else do you think I racked up so many posts on here?!). After i’m done graduate school, I’ll be looking for a field-based position again…the work day went so fast and I loved being outside of a building. Sure, the travel gets to be tiring, but it’s so refreshing and “free”.
