The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Do you like to help people? Are you good at maneuvering through complex situations? If so, social work should be on your list of career options! According to the National Association of Social Workers, social work is “a profession devoted to helping people function the best they can in their environment” and Bureau of Labor Statistics adds “Social workers help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives.”
Social work professionals are found in a wide variety of environments, from hospitals and universities to communities of all types.
Social workers share a commitment to
promoting social welfare,
helping people of all backgrounds overcome their unique challenges,
advocating for social and economic justice for all members of the community, and
embodying a professional code of ethics.
