Ok...I've been looking online and reading posts and realize it is difficult to find actual facility and agency names of Social Service facilities and the services they provide and employment opportunities. So I was wondering if anyone from the area is aware of agencies that hire Caseworkers with BS in Psychology? I am looking into moving to the Nixa area aftyer I graduate in may. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The good jobs are hard to find. To get into the game and get some experience Burrell Behavioral Health in Springfield is ALWAYS hiring. Be prepared to work nights. They are affiliated through Cox South Hospital.

Other than than just watch the want ads etc.

Ok....Great! Thanks. I'm going to Springfield this weekend to get a paper and look around. Yes you are right the agencies are hide to find (especially good ones). Thanks for your input.

My sister in law used to work as one. Yes the good jobs are hard to find and more often than not they require....uh should I say connections? The pay for her job was crappy and the working hours were horrible. While I laud the medical industry as the better paying employer in Springfield the social worker end of it is the sludge pit. Good luck.

Yes...you are right, you practically need connections to find the good agencies/jobs. I am just a bit surprised that I'm not seeing listings for Community Support Workers during the day. So many programs have expanded and are needing these workers to get their clients assimilated into society as independently as thier abilities allow...which requires a person (CSW) to accompany and provide assistance in finding resources for these individuals. Most of this assistance needs to be done during daytime, business hours. But I see the Springfield area seems to offer these positions in a more covert (secretive) way (HA!). As you stated..."Connections."

That's one of the downsides to trying to find lucrative employment outside the medical industry. If you think social work is bad try getting on with the railroad. Like most industries there is an old "boys and girls" network" in practically every prfoession that offers better than average wages. In Sprigfield though it can mean the difference between a $40,000 A Year gig and a minimum wage job.
