Dina Habibovic, Student Information Desk Assistant

DINA'S PICK: Behavior Therapist at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 1st, 2019 

I thought this job was very cool because it allows you to work with children who are autistic. And I feel like that's a life skill we should all have because autism affects so many individuals. I also thought it was a cool choice because it offers the training required for working with autistic individuals as a part of the hiring process. So you don't have to worry about not having the actual skills. It also allows for opportunities to continue along a career track with the employer. Basically a great chance at a full-time job with them. It's also in California, which is one of my favorite states. And overall the employment package is just very supportive with paid training, travel time pay, paid sick time, and access to mentorship.
