New Social Worker Needs Your Help

by Rob on July 27, 2010 · 1 comment

One of the respondents to our recent survey is a new graduate (congratulations!)  who studied at a local University. She focused on the administrative track.  Since May, she has been looking for work in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention. Her goal is to be a program manager.  She has faced some challenges in identifying job opportunities.As you may know, many of the jobs posted on websites are for direct practice social work.  Even 10000 guarantor loans on there are fewer and fewer administrative positions.

So what is someone in her position to do?  I have my own ideas,  but am looking for your thoughts.  In fact, I need your help in identifying ways for new graduates who were administrative track to transition into the workforce.

Anyone with thoughts on this?

It may help to start in an advocacy or lobbying agency that doesn’t do direct service. I started in direct service, but my niece, also involved in social services, went the lobbyist route. These are not well-paying jobs for new grads, though.
