Find 2019 Social Work Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for social work internships or entry-level social work jobs? Mother Teresa inspired millions to give a helping hand with words of wisdom like, “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” If you’re someone who enjoys helping others, look no further than the field of social work.

Social workers help children and families with a wide range of issues such as disabilities, adoption, illness and addiction. They’re extremely knowledgeable about services and treatments available. Some work directly with those in need and others work on behalf of those populations in advocacy roles, developing or improving programs, services, policies, and social conditions.

The Internship

An internship in social work is often required and will give you the opportunity to get training and guidance from professionals in the field. Social work interns could help with anything from grant writing, working with support groups, or case management such as assessment, evaluation, and treatment. The best social workers display interpersonal, organizational, problem-solving, and time-management skills along with impressive levels of empathy.

To start your social work internship, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree. A master’s degree, experience, and a state license will allow you to become a clinical social worker.

The Career Options

Depending on your social work focus, you could work at a hospital, senior center, community center, mental health clinic, government office, jail, military base, homeless shelter, or other facility. Caseworkers often juggle large caseloads and often both work in an office and visit clients at their homes. Social work specialties include child and family, clinical, school, healthcare, geriatric, hospice, medical, and mental health.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the social work field is projected to grow 12% over the next decade, which is above average, though growth rate by specialty varies widely.
