Having a degree in Social Work has given me to opportunity to work as a professional in many different occupations. Over the course of 30+ years, i have worked with children, families, elderly, mental health and insurance. A social work degree has given me different levels of experience and I have held many different jobs, one leading into other and promoting myself with the experience i gain from each one. I would not have made another decision, a social work degree is a degree that will give you many opportunities; it is how you want to pursue your future and the use of the degree.
