Becoming A Social Service Worker

215 Words1 Page
I rated myself as a one because I believe that listening is one of my greatest skills I have. During high school I had always been the one my friends go to when they need to vent about a problem. I would sit and listen to them and help them focus their attention at the problem at hand. Although I cannot say why I had an invested interest in listening to people’s problems, but this skill did lead me down the path to becoming a social service worker. This skill is of great benefit when you are a Social Service Worker. A big part of our job is listening to our clients, and being able to use the information we hear to help them. It is hard to give them the help that they need to empower their own lives when we do not have great listening skills.
