Some reputable social work recruitment agencies include the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) careers website. Many local social work departments also recruit their own staff, as noted on the Baltimore County Department of Social Services website.Continue Reading
The NASW operates a career center website that provides job opportunities and career development tools for social workers. Social workers may post resumes on the platform to help find employers. The website sends out alerts when new job postings match a candidate's desired position and provides coaching services, resume writing tools and other career guidance services. Employers can search the pool of social worker resumes or post positions on the website's job board, as described on the NASW website.
Qualified social workers can also find jobs by contacting their county department of social services. For example, the Baltimore County Department of Social Services hires qualified social workers directly. It requires its social workers to have a master's degree in social work and either hold a license or be eligible to apply for a license. Prospective employees can contact the agency's assistant directors to inquire about job openings or hiring information.
Social workers can also find reliable jobs on the federal level on the USA.gov federal government job website. Job seekers can do an advanced search for jobs by job category, location, work options and department.Learn more about Job Search
