Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0871013630, Paperback)

Social work is a complex profession with multiple specialties and work settings. Very few mass market career publications or web sites address in detail the career management and job search needs of social workers across job functions, fields, or degree levels.

Social Work Career Development is the most comprehensive book of its kind and a superb reference for any social worker. Updated to respond to changes in the job market and the profession since the best-selling first edition, this unique handbook addresses in detail the career management and job search needs of social workers, including self-assessment exercises, strategies for researching the job market and networking, details on resumes, curriculum vitae, and portfolios; tips on selecting master's and doctoral programs, and much more.

Social Work Career Development is a must for practitioners, managers, and faculty. It may be the most valuable career planning tool available to students and should be in every college career center and library.

Questions to facilitate research regarding the market in sub-fields of social work
Interview questions by function for practice
Pitfalls and illegal questions in interviews
Licensure and certification for social work and related specialties
Detailed vignettes of job searches at the BSW, MSW, and PhD levels
