Given that my job demanded a wide range of transferable skills and educationally/guidance related accumen to be provided and conveyed by myself in sevral diverse settings I am able toi say that I was both challenged and gratified in equal messures during the time I spent working as Careers Adviser/Keyworker.
Being able to enhance my ability to work in the following manner helped me enormoously:

As part of a pro active team

On own initiative

Interacting and liaising with other professionally based agencies and companies

Directly with clients in order to ensure that I could deliver a facilitatory and empathetixc approach

In school/college/training provision etc

With disengaged service users


Managing my time and reponsibilites afforded me the chance work in a more organised and productive way

The hardest part of my job was trying to realise how best to "switch off" as I became extremely dedicated to the tasks I was obliged to undertake.

Most enjoyable: knowing that by empowering and guiding my caseload appositly that they "moved forward" and developed their potential and aspirational goals.
Pros
autonomous, respected by others, opportunity to deliver care, guidance, empathy
Cons
administration and public sector cuts
