We had just about given up hope, but I finally got a full-time job. I start Monday.
The job is a research assistant with Operation PAR. PAR is a local drug/alcohol rehab. I will be assigned a federal research grant to gather data for study. I'll be working "in the field", which means my office will be in the jail. I do intake interview and then 6 & 12 month follow-ups. The rehab program is 3 months.
The pay is not what I wanted, but at this point beggars (literally) can't be choosers. Plus there are a lot of great opportunities for advancement after 12 months. In fact they don't want you to be a RA for more than a year, and help facility and train you to move on to other things within the agency. Maybe I can actually put this Counseling Doctorate to use. I will also get some opportunities to teach.
All in all I think it will be good. Wish me luck.
