Your road to your career starts here. And you don’t need to know your final destination to begin.
As a BSW social worker, you are able to help lots of people: those with disabilities or facing life-threatening illnesses. Those suffering from poverty, unemployment, substance abuse, or mental illness. Those who have experienced domestic violence, child abuse, or sexual assault. And you’ll have options in the type of work you do. You might work as a case manager, in a residential program, as a counselor, as an advocate. You can be employed by numerous services and agencies.
