How do I start a Career in Social Work?

Career in Social Work

I think Social Work is a great Career option. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Social Work actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Social Work. While I was searching for reliable information about a Career in Social Work, I came across this amazing page: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20170523-0002/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-Social-Work/english 

Karen Gallagher's professional point of view!
Karen Gallagher has 6 years & 10 months of professional experience in Social Work. Karen Gallagher has worked in Social Work as Social Worker in City Edinburgh Council. In Karen Gallagher's own words, this is how Karen Gallagher got into Social Work: "I went to high school and finished it at the age of 18, I then traveled for three years and joined university at the age of 21 where I studied social work for four years and gained the degree of B A (Honors) in social work." I wanted to know more about Karen Gallagher and found this profile: https://www.lifepage.in/page/karengallagher 

Career Video on Social Work
In a video, Karen Gallagher has talked about various aspects of a Career in Social Work. Karen Gallagher started by explaining Social Work as: "Social Work is defined as working with people in the circumstance including drug abuse,poverty,alcohol and looking at making a positive change to people's lives. This could be achieved through a number of solutions, the main aspect is to empower individuals to make changes themselves with the support of social work." I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.


We all know that only 10% of what is taught in Social Work is actually used in real life. The education section of the video clearly explained what is the 10% needed in Social Work. Karen Gallagher touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
Intervention Theories
Child Development

Karen Gallagher then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Social Work:
Communication

Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Karen Gallagher believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Social Work:

Continuous Learning
Challenges define a Career as much as the Positives of the same.
And, Karen Gallagher believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Work:
Report Writing
