Career Options for Social Work PhDs: Infographic and Career Planning Template
Do you mentor doctoral students or chair a doctoral prograrm? I developed these tools in preparation for taking on the role of chair of our social work school's PhD program. I will use the infographic to have an initial discussion with doctoral students about the job options out there for them. Many "don't know what they don't know"--I certainly didn't at that stage. The career planning template can help students refine their understanding of potential career choices, and devise a plan for ensuring that needed skills, knowledge, connections, and self-promotion strategies are in place prior to their job search phase.
If you use this or just have thoughts about it, I'd love your feedback and suggestions.
