Career Day set for April 13

On April 13, 2015, the UNC School of Social Work will host its annual Career Day.

On Career Day, the School invites its MSW students as well as undergraduate students from North Carolina BSW programs to explore social work career opportunities. Graduates of the UNC School of Social Work are well-qualified, having on average two years of social work experience prior to coming to graduate school. In addition to a curriculum that allows students to concentrate in a field of practice, most students have also had 1,200 hours of MSW supervised field practice. North Carolina BSW students come from outstanding BSW programs where students are prepared for entry-level professional social work positions. Career Day gives agencies an opportunity to recruit MSW or BSW social work students for current and future job openings, and to interest students in their field of service.

We welcome all potential employers to take advantage of this free opportunity to recruit well-qualified MSW and BSW graduates.

Following the job fair, Kim Strom-Gottfried, Ph.D., will present “Do I Intervene Here? Guidance on Ethical Dilemmas That Arise With Colleagues,” from 2-4 p.m. in the auditorium. All recruiters are welcome to attend this workshop free of charge and will receive a certificate documenting completion of two contact hours.
