Yes. At the same time though, my thought it they wouldn’t hire someone who isn’t an essential need for them at the moment and would just wait til this is all resolved. So if I get an offer, that means they see a value in me for the immediate future. I’m also considering how much I HATE my current job and how poorly it’s effecting my mental health so I need a new opportunity no matter what and that the job market will be way way way worse once we come out of this so might as well get ahead of the curve.

Same as A1, I despised my current job. Plus my future employer has secure financials and plenty in reserve. They’re still aggressively hiring and have taken steps to support the current employee base so I’m pretty happy with my decision.

Few months ago I finally found a courage to changed my “about me” section so it would reflect who I am and my culture. I thought diverse talent are appreciated more these days.

I had a lot more traffic on most of my projects when I had ambiguous genaric one. I guess diversity is not as cool as it is being portrayed for hiring. Back to being generic! 🙁

I recently passed my LCSW exam and I am waiting to receive my official licensure information in the mail. I interviewed for a position that requires the LCSW and received an offer to start as an MSW and eventually adjust my salary once my licensure and credentialing is completed. They gave me the salary for MSW level however, they said they could not tell me what the salary bump for LCSW would be until i have my license number. Is this standard practice for a LCSW position in a clinic?
