Iíve been with the same nonprofit company for almost 14 years - straight out of college except for a couple of very brief temp jobs after graduating. Iíve also held various positions at this company. It has been, and can be, very stressful....to the point where Iíve come very close to calling it quits a couple of times. During those times, yes, the quality benefits were mostly what kept me from leaving. Those and the daunting thought of having to go through the entire interviewing process again and everything else that comes with finding a new job...ugh.

Our contract is up for competition every 3-5 years, and that whole process and the uncertainty of the outcome can be very taxing on my colleagues and me. Fortunately, we have very low turnover, and most of us have been here for quite a while. We all know the ropes, work well together, and our contractor appreciates the high employee retention rate.

All in all, it has been a career that has helped me to grow tremendously as a person and professional. It is always challenging, and Iíve had to face quite a few of my fears.

We donít always get to see the immediate impact that our work makes on the lives of the particular health population for whom we work, but when we do, it really makes all of the hard work worth it.

My stepsonís wife stayed at a very low paying job for years just for the benefits while she went to school and her kids were young.

Yes sometimes I feel thatís why I stay. The benefits are the best Iíve had so far. But I figured when Iím ready I could find something else. THEN they went and gave a pretty hefty raise. Sooooo..... now it would be much harder to match it all. I hate the long drive on the Congested roads and the feeling I donít have enough free time among some other things. But it could be much worse so I try to be happy with it all.

I finally scored a job not using a staffing agency.

Autozone is taking a chance on me and hired me as sales/driver. With potential to further my training to become maim driver, etc.

I have worked at the same mental health agency since February 2011. I started as a clinical supervisor, then was promoted to clinical director, then program director, then director of quality management then four months ago I was promoted to the Director of Clinical Operations. My work focuses on Division Outcomes, data analysis, research, and evidence-based practices. I am also an adjunct professor for a college in the area and I am working on my dissertation for my Ph.D in social work. I just hired a company to start the credentialing process to become part of insurance panels for private practice.
