Career Plans!

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Hey everyone,

Well the Christmas break is looming, and there are only four more days left of this semester before I can relax.. for a little while anyway!

Second year so far has been pretty full on, I won’t lie! It’s felt like a big step up from first year but I think I have managed to cope with it quite well. Whenever I feel as though the work is getting on top of me I like to think of graduation and the job I hope to go into at the end of the course. Since the course began I have changed my mind so many times about the specific area of Social Work I want to specialise in, but that’s because everything interests me.

I think that the course has made me realise just how many different fields there are within social work and there are so many possibilities once you have the degree. For the moment I am still leaning towards working within Child Protection or  Children & Adolescent Mental Health, but no doubt that will be different by the time I get to third year!

I managed to catch a few of my class mates from the course to ask about their career plans post graduation and wasn’t surprised that everyone wanted to go along different avenues!
