Mental Health Specialist II

8 years experience in Social Work. Have undergraduate degree in Sports Management and Masters in Social Work. Have taken the Licensing exam 3 times and failed. Will be 31 in January and am wondering whether I should continue this career path. If I did decide on another career path I have no idea what that would be. Currently making around 60k, would be happier in the 70-80 range. Wondering if HealthCare is worth it long term.. Any suggestions?

    Pros

    I started during a time of transition which caused a lot of frustration on my end. Since then my dept at Duke has improved a lot of the processes. -Recently improved compensation for the roles most people recruit for - Outside the box thinking, no longer doing things the "duke" way no matter what -Work life balance is very good. Good covid/remote response -Great benefits including a really awesome 401k match -A team that really cares

    Cons

    - Still some outdated processes hanging around - Working for a large org can be tough(not duke specific) - Many times you are more of a jack of all trades HR person rather than recruiter
