I've been in the government industry since 2014 until May 2019, In my daily work assisting client from different Barangays helping them to update their information in our system like change of school or health center and change of basic information.My work is full of productivity in terms with my caseloads and the people whom i worked with. I use to work in the province of Cebu, Philippines with those indigenous people, Every training give us a hint on how are we going to serve people and help those in need. The hardest part is when there is a calamity and we need to be in the said area. Enjoyable moments is when I'm going to conduct a monitoring of students which they'll going to give me a high five every time i'll visit their rooms.
Pros
free training
Cons
unpaid overtime

Working at DSWD will ready an individual for hardships, deliverables with short timelines. Handling pressure and giving deliverables on time is already a great achievement. Working with people suffering from poverty is also an eye opener, empathizing with the poor and helping them.
Pros
You get to serve the poor, do field work.
Cons
Work/Life balance is not balanced

Everyday is challenging, you should meet the deadlines given in your report.You need to go early in the office. I communicate different people. I need to be patient talking to people who lacks of information about the program. We teach people about their basic hygiene and their rights as a human. The hardest part of the job is when you see your beneficiaries suffer poverty. But the most enjoyable is that when you see your beneficiaries happy with your helps to make their live better.
Pros
no free lunches
Cons
8 hours

A typical day at work was encode all non-compliance beneficiaries in Education, Health and Family Development Session. Receive issues and concerns of the beneficiaries. Smooth relations with my co-workers. The management was supportive but I want a security of my position because in my 6 years in the department I was only a Cost of Service (MOA) position which their is no tenure of security in the Agency I served but I have learned a lot special with dealing to others. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I conducting Family Development Session to our beneficiaries. Through Family Development Session I enhance my skills and ability to speech as a Resource speaker.

I learned how to able to cope from distress situation when a person or family goes extremely in their lives. My inner & outer core was being openly to public which I thought I will not able too but in this job I got myself more confidently and able to think wisely for any situation will come. To experience this kind of job was out of my line but was so thankful that I delivered it gracefully with dedications to out reach my self to many kinds of people.

Most of the time I was at the office doing updates and attending to inquiries But once in every 2 months I monitored the compliance of the beneficiaries where I get to visit schools and health centers to check their attendance. I learned that being a social worker is a noble job because it takes dedication, patience, and passion to be with the community people. Since we were under a national project I'd say that the management is very supportive with their employees needs. My co-workers are very fun to be with and we always work as a team. The hardest part with this job were the abrupt deadlines but in summary I really enjoyed my job here being an assistant social worker.
Pros
good salary
Cons
abrupt deadlines

Im a happy person and fun to be with. I love playing badminton. I can easily adjust type of personality. My co-wokers are younger than I but even my function is to assist my co-workers, my co-workers still give me a change to share my knowledge in a small and simple way. The hardest part of my job is to be at field and you are out budget for the transportation. My most enjoyable part of my job is to mingle other people and learned to teach my self as a blessings to others.
