Career Services & Resources
Welcome to Career Services & Resources at the School of Social Work!
Throughout each academic year, the Student Affairs team provides a range of resources to assist both BSW and MSW students, as well as alumni, with their social work career development. We support students throughout their time in our program(s) to successfully transition to a professional career in social work.
Visit the School’s calendar of events for the latest details on career services events. Separate from your field placement planning experiences, the Student Affairs team can also assist with resume and cover letter reviews, interviewing preparation, salary negotiation, and licensure preparation.
