Turn Your Passion for Volunteering into a Career: Earn an MSW
Note: This post is sponsored - we are thrilled to bring sponsors, partners and resources to our community that encourage GOOD work.
Volunteering your time and energy to a homeless shelter, senior citizens center or after-school sports program are all excellent ways to give back to your community. It’s also a great way to lay the groundwork for a future career, considering 20 percent of hiring managers make decisions based on a candidate’s volunteer work. But how can you translate your interest in volunteering into a paying job?
The MSW@USC program, an online Master of Social Work degree offered through the University of Southern California’s top-ranked School of Social Work, is an ideal way to transform your love of helping others into a promising career as a social worker. From connecting clients with health care resources to helping veterans and their families cope with post-traumatic stress, social workers make a difference in people’s lives every day. Social work can provide you with an attractive vocation that appeals to your professional ambitions, your interests and your ideals.
Apply by June 25 for the traditional program that starts August 7. Or, you can apply for advanced standing if you have a bachelor’s degree in social work and meet some additional eligibility requirements. That deadline is July 1 for classes that start September 3.
