I was responsible for...
I am responsible for scanning and filing in addition to shadowing case workers in meetings with clients and other coordinators.
I will never forget...
The most memorable experience I have had so far is when one of our clients got an minor in possession of alcohol charge. It was memorable for a lot of reasons but there was specifically a moment where I got one on one time with the client and helped him calm down because he was very aggravated and getting the cops notably annoyed with him.
Advice for others...
I would tell them to take advantage of all the time spent outside of the office. Scanning and filing is naturally going to be a part of your job but there are a lot of moments with the clients that you can connect and seeing the way coordinators orchestrate projects can make it seem less conjured and more approachable.
