AbstractIt is important to choose your job with the same care you choose your major. The ones you are going to work with would add equally knowledge to your life as the books, and papers you have read and written. Your client can be old, young, or of any ethnicity and race, and this diversity isthe reason why I have chosen a career in Social Services.2
