Wendi’s Answer

After working in the field, i can say it really isn't as stressful as one might imagine. You have the opportunity, as a social worker, to aid people and help them progress. They are very thankful at the end and it's extremely rewarding. Try being a cps officer!

Needs faith above all, and should come from the heart,you dont have take it as an obligation but rather as a passion.
Trick : if you take some time to analyze your daily activities, you will surely find many actions that you do with a social impacts on the society, just take the time & care to make them and keep them positive as possible, and avoid negative one, and just like this the work will be done :)

Kathryn’s Answer

Anastasia, I'm not a social worker, but i had a friend who majored in social work and then began her career. She did leave the field, but not because of the stress. She left because the salary was too low to live the sort of life she wanted to. She then went on to work for the USPS (United States Postal Service.) She retired from that, and now does social work as a volunteer. She enjoys it very much, still!

Kathryn recommends the following next steps:

Research careers you can have with a degree in social work.
Find volunteer opportunities that stretch the skills you'll need in the profession.
