Connecting Social Work students with jobs and internships

On Wednesday, February 14, at 3:30 p.m. in the Lory Student Center’s Grey Rock Room, the School of Social Work will co-sponsor the Social Work Connect Event with CSU Career Services. This annual networking reception for graduating B.S.W. and M.S.W. students, as well as students entering into internships, is an opportunity for students and employers to meet and connect around future employment opportunities.

As students learn more about agencies, programs, and hiring processes from professionals in the field of social work at this event, they can build their professional networks and start making connections for the future.

Featuring Integrated Care, Behavioral Health Panel

This year’s event will feature a panel discussion on the growing field of Integrated Care within the field of Behavioral Health.  Students will have the opportunity to learn more about this emerging field through the experience of local professionals.

It may also provide insight for students pursuing scholarship opportunities such as the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) program, for which the School of Social Work recently received $1.92 million in funding in collaboration with Metro State University.  At the event, current HRSA scholars will connect and share insights with student applicants.
