How to be a Social Worker
  • Choosing a career can be quite challenging and
    confusing, especially given that you dont get to
    take a test drive before choosing one. This means
    that your decision will be crucial and may well
    shape the rest of your life.
  • While everyone may have a dream career when
    they are kids, the ideas quickly turn kind of
    silly when they grow up. Similarly, although
    going where your passion lies may seem like a
    good idea, but it surely wont be in every case.
  • This leads us to our topic that we will be
    discussing in this article becoming a social
    worker. Many like helping others, and saving them
    from dangerous or unhealthy situations. However,
    while such feelings may be a start, they may not
    be enough for becoming a social worker.
  • If youre looking to know how to become a social
    worker, you may first want to take a look at the
    things given below, so that youre aware of what
    it may be like to be a social worker.

Landing in unexpected situations is common
  • Well, you may have heard the phrase expect the
    unexpected.' However, you may not have imagined
    that this particular phrase may turn out to be
    very helpful for you in your career.
  • But if you decide to become a social worker, you
    would probably be surprised at how true (and
    helpful) it may turn out to be for you. After
    all, a social worker tends to come across
    unexpected situations regularly.
  • You would probably be working with different
    people on an almost daily basis, and may come
    across things you wouldnt really expect. Such
    things may include a client suddenly needing your
    help to take an important decision, an elderly
    client passing away, a client falling prey to a
    domestic violence incidence, and so on.

There would be a need to learn and evolve
  • Its believed that social work isnt a static
    career, but rather a constantly changing one.
    This is because it isnt uncommon for the new
    laws to be introduced regularly, as well as more
    research being done that leads to a changed
    requirements.
  • With that being said, you may want to take on new
    courses that help you grow personally and
    professionally. Similarly, you may also have to
    attend several special training programs that may
    go a long way in helping you learn and evolve
    too.

5
You need to be strong!
  • Well, while its almost a given in the social
    work world, you still need to be reminded that
    being strong is one of the most important
    requirements of becoming a social worker. This is
    because its common to come across many
    challenges, including professional ones that
    involve dealing with problems caused by your own
    colleagues.
  • Its believed that if you arent trained well in
    any type of social work, you may be looked down
    by some of your colleagues.

A Final Word
  • While there seems to be a lot more to what has
    been already mentioned above, the bottom line is
    that being a social worker isnt exactly easy.
    You need to be prepared mentally and make sure
    you dont let any challenges get in your way.
  • This will help you keep going and help people the
    way youre actually supposed to.
