If you want to find that dream job after graduation, you have got to be prepared! From the initial hunt to nailing your interview, there are several employment skills social workers should have in their toolbelt. The School of Social Work has got you covered though – from beginning to end of the interview process.  

Join us on Monday, March 20th for a ‘Resume and Negotiation Skills Share’ session, presented by social work writing coach (and all-around professional development guru) Vanessa Gualtieri. This ‘Skills Share’ event will focus on two important bookends of the interview process: preparing your post-degree resume and how to respectfully negotiate for salary, supervision, etc.  

Having a rock-solid resume will help get you in the door, and once you get that offer, knowing how to self-advocate becomes equally important. Social work students can start interviewing for jobs before they even graduate, so if you are walking this semester, do not miss our Skills Share event.  

‘Resume and Negotiation Skills Share’ is one session within ‘Step Into Our Future’, our three-part virtual professional development series. ‘Step Into Your Future’ features three educational Zoom sessions, each covering essential topics for upcoming MSW or BSW graduates. Students are encouraged to attend each session individually or participate in all three. Each session has its’ own unique Zoom link, so be sure to RSVP for each event separately.  

Full event schedule: 

Monday, March 20th, 6-7pm: Resume and Negotiation Skill Share led by SW Writing Coach Vanessa Gualtieri 

Tuesday, March 21st, 6-7pm: ABSW Licensure Exam Workshop led by the WSU Social Work Advisors  

Friday, March 24th, 12-2pm: Careers and Connections Hiring Fair - featuring over 15 hiring agencies 

Put your best foot forward and RSVP for all three sessions today!
