Pursuing a MSW
I am really interested in pursuing a MSW. I am finishing up a graduate certificate in Sociology, but I don’t have a lot of recent, relevant work experience. I understand that most MSW programs require work (or at least volunteer) experience. What are some good strategies for networking and finding opportunities to gain that experience? #gradschool #socialwork #msw
Hi there! Great that you want to pursue an MSW. I would look for a local nonprofit organization that works with a specific population or cause that you care about, and see if they have any volunteer needs. Maybe you can help them around their office or help staff one of their programs - consistency for a time period would be most attractive to social work schools, however the cause itself should be something you really care about personally! I've seen people come into MSW programs from all sorts of career tracks, but they have one thing in common - a clear passion about who and what they desire to help. Good luck!!
