Emily, a Social Worker and Executive Associate at The Village Family Services, describes what she loves most about her job, its challenges, and how hard it is to get a job in her field. The work can be intense and there aren't enough hours in a day. It's a balance -- you have to learn when to put a project down until later, and when to keep going.
There are two main types of social workers: direct-service social workers, who help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives, and clinical social workers, who diagnose and treat mental, behavioral, and emotional issues.
Licensure varies by state. All states have some type of licensure or certification requirement. All states require clinical social workers to be licensed. However, some states provide exemptions for clinical social workers who work in government agencies.
