Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.

 

If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.

 

Believe in yourself and go for it!

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
