This is very interesting. I think mine was when I started working as a CSP at my other job.I actually have an assent ,while some clients ruffled some take the advantage to know where I came from. But being a professional working with such a reputable organisation, I make sure I make all the clients happy in the end. They laugh and smile, especially those that ruffled became very nice and free with me. Funny enough, each time they call in or walk in, they prefer me to attend to their cases lols, . What I took away from it?, I quickly improved on my tongue due to the challenge of my assent. Thanks.

What I loved working at #Caregiving

I love working at caregiving because it makes me happy to hear people say thank you and how blessed they are to have me a part of their lives. It feels good to help others mostly for the seniors that are so lonely and has no relatives or even kids to help and care for them. I was raised by my grandparents and I took care of them until I had to move to further my education.

Caregiving for a family member on a resume??

I have a family member that has been a caregiver for her ill father for almost 5 years, but now she is trying to get back into the workforce because she hired someone else to help out. She would cook, clean, do laundry, help him around the house, and run errands because he has trouble getting around and cannot leave the house. My question is would her caregiving experience count as valid work experience on a resume even though it was for a family member? How similar is caregiving for a family member to working at an assisted living facility or a nursing home? She used to be a teacher so she is looking to be hired at one of the local public schools. Any insight would be really appreciated!

Any type of work experience is considered.

I was a caregiver for two parents. One was for four years and the other for 10. During that time, I took graduate classes about Pharmacology, Alzheimer's, Health and Public Policy. I served as an advocate on behalf of my parents -- whether this was at a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living facility. I did it as best I could, but death is a process that they couldn't escape, no matter how hard I tried. Still, the experience enriched me and makes me an advocate on behalf of the aging. It makes me knowledgeable about drugs given to the aging, helplessness and dependency, depression in the aging, fall risks and multiple legal / financial issues. I think that this knowledge and life-changing experience is worth something. it built my empathy and deepened my humanity. But how to argue this rich education and experience on a resume? I'm clueless!

Calling all nurses: Tell me what your job is really like

Hi everyone, my name is Allana Akhtar and I am a reporter for Business Insider.

I report on different jobs, and I'm launching a feature on what it's really like to be a nurse. If you are a nurse and have a story to share, please fill out the survey at the bottom of this article: https://www.businessinsider.com/nurses-survey-what-is-the-hardest-part-about-being-a-nurse-2019-5

You can also email me if you have any other comments or concerns at aakhtar@businessinsider.com.

If you're not a nurse but know one, feel free to share this survey with your friends. I'm looking forward to hearing your stories!

I love that you're doing this. Just shared it with my mother - a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) nurse for 30 years!
