Social Work Careers
Those interested in a career in social work will find that there are a number of career paths they can explore at the micro, mezzo, and macro level. Social workers collaborate with groups, individuals, families, and communities to facilitate a better quality of life. For those wishing to tackle injustices on a macro scale, careers in public policy or administration are an option. Others may be interested in effecting change on a personal level, at the micro scale. These types of professionals may wish to explore work as a family social worker, clinical social worker, or nonprofit service provider. Those wishing to improve the well-being of groups through mezzo-level practice may consider roles in community organizations or behavioral health, as examples. In nearly every part of a community, you're bound to find a social worker looking to create change through small and large-scale practice.
