How do you pursue a Career in Social Work?

Career in Social Work

There are many nuances of a Career in Social Work. Internet is brimming with pages on How to get into Social Work, while I want to first understand What is a Career in Social Work. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Social Work, when I came across: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20171204-0004/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-Social-Work/english 

Saswati Singh's professional point of view!
Saswati Singh invested 22 years in Social Work. Saswati Singh has worked in Social Work as Founder in Nav Prerna Foundation & Inspiration. In Saswati Singh's own words, this is how Saswati Singh got into Social Work: "After completing my Schooling from Pratt Memorial School, Calcutta, I did my Graduation in Botany from Presidency College. I also did MSC from Presidency College itself. I did my M Ed from Annamalai University, Chennai. Apart from that I did my Special Education from IGNOU University. I worked at various places, as a principal and a Biology Teacher. I have been doing Social Work since 1995." 

Career Video on Social Work
In a video, Saswati Singh has talked about various aspects of a Career in Social Work. Saswati Singh started by explaining Social Work as: "Social work is an academic discipline and profession that concerns itself with individuals, families, groups and communities in an effort to enhance social functioning and overall well-being" I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.


I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Social Work and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Social Work. Saswati Singh touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
Psychology
Sociology
Human Sciences
Women Studies
Social Sciences
Rehabilitation Studies
Current Affairs
Skills are the most important factor determining success in a particular Career.
Saswati Singh then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Social Work:
Communication
Empathy
Observation
Patience
Team Leader
Creativity
It is important to get an understanding of the Positives of this Career.
Saswati Singh believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Social Work:
Self Satisfaction
Societal Impact
Meeting New People
Travelling
It is important that one develops a fair understanding of the Challenges of this Career.
And, Saswati Singh believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Work:
Lack of Funds
Lack of Volunteers
Initial Struggle
Misconception of Society

In the final section of the video Saswati Singh talks about How a day goes in a Career in Social Work. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Social Work, that I have ever come across. To see the full Talk, one needs to install the LifePage Career Talks App. Here is a direct deep link of the Video: https://lifepage.app.link/20171204-0004
