Professionals in the Human Services field are often driven by compassion.  Careers in Human Services include jobs as Rehabilitation Counselors; Family Counselors.  Those who enjoy working in Daycare Facilities are often Eldercare and Childcare Workers.  Educational and Vocational Counselors often work in campus settings or for public agencies.

 

In many urban settings professionals in the field find themselves acting as a Homeless Services Coordinator; working as a Women’s Shelter Administrator; or overseeing a Poverty Assistance Program as a Human Services Manager.  People in the Human Services field are in charge of the safety net for those among us who are overwhelmed by addiction, poverty, emotional problems or just old age.
