Job Hunt in Social Work


Thursday, May 30 - 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. CST via Zoom

Presenter: Dr. Jacob Kendall MSW, MPH, PhD

1 CEU (Virtual)

As a career consultant for social workers, I observe sentiments that are increasingly common these days: burnout, financial overwhelm, guilt, and even regret. In this presentation I will outline actionable steps for defeating these feelings, primarily by learning to master your macro zoom lens, expand your thinking, and pivot your career (if you want to). These strategies travel well for new professionals and seasoned practitioners alike. Let’s discuss how to embrace your macro side and squeeze all the juice out of your expertise. In this talk I will provide strategies for confidently and assertively marketing your transferable social work skills.

Learning Objectives:

(1) Embrace Your macro: Learn how to integrate knowledge across the natural and social sciences. We’ll examine contemporary issues from both a medical and epidemiological perspective. 

(2) Be Versatile: Learn how to apply actionable strategies for translating your clinical and case management skills to any other framework or industry. 

(3) Pivot your career: Learn how to convey your transferable skills with razor-sharp precision. We’ll discuss how to do so in a résumé, during interviews, and while networking. 

You will receive the access link the day before the webinar.
