Word Press is really professional compared to Blogger by Google. I have had a Blog before but they always seem so unprofessional to me. I started this blog because I wanted a place to make connections to other people. I know that sounds weird but I hope you know what I am trying to say.
I also, wanted to start this blog to promote my counseling practice and hopefully help those out there that would like more information on counseling.
High lights for this week:
I have been interviewing for a position in higher education. I like working with tomorrows brightest in higher education atmosphere. I prepare and go over what kind of questions the interviewer might ask me. I practice in the mirror to make sure I am not making no grimacing face. However, I seem to always get perplexed when interviewers ask me “What experience do you have working in a culturally diverse population?” I get perplexed because I am african american and I feel like I was raised to know how to work in a diverse population. It’s part of functioning in majority white population. It’s not like I can go to any part of the United States and not see a white person. However, I can go to places where I won’t see another minority. Minorities are moving out to other places but not enough for white people not to have places to call their own. For instance, Northern Wisconsin. I really don’t understand the question they are asking. Are they asking:
- Will I be able to assimilate to the majority culture?
- Is my identity development primarily that of a Black Nationalist. (In short it means that I only promote the greater good of the black community)
- Are you really black?
Average High for the week:
I quit my part-time job that I had for about a year. I felt the job was not in the direction that I am looking to pursue and I didn’t agree with the new mission and direction that the non-profit was going. I know I will miss the couple of consumers that have made big strides with me as their counselor and I hope they keep up the momentum.
