What's drawing you to a career in social work?
Some of our students have experienced the Canadian community services system first-hand—and are inspired to pay forward the help they received.
Others feel a strong sense of social justice, and want a career that focuses on improving the society we live in.
And we often train students who have a particular goal in mind—like working specifically with neglected children, mothers escaping domestic abuse, or new immigrants who need help adjusting to life in Canada.
If you're not totally sure which career path you would choose, or if community services worker training is right for you, take a few minutes to think about your mindset, motivations, and professional goals.
By the end of this post, you'll have a much clearer idea of whether you should pursue training (plus some handy links and steps for what to do next).
