If there are any fellow social workers out there, please chime in!

I have a Master's degree in social work...6+ years of experience in social work administration (the field I would like to stay in)...and about 1 year of experience in the medical social work setting (hematology/oncology).

any leads to social work job boards and/or potential employers would be greatly appreciated!

thanks,
elizabeth

Boy I nearly flipped out last week when the paper came out. There was an entry level social worker position down here in the boondocks open at the magnificant pay of $16,000.00 a year. Stay out of the boonies.

With your education and experience you will be just fine!! Go to The Employment Security Commission of North Carolina and do a job search for any county you want to look in. The state website is okay but this is your best bet. What do you want to do? Hospital,,,then look at Pitt Memorial in Greenville, NC as they always how jobs available for discharge planning and so forth. DSS...plenty of supervisory jobs available or lineworkers....You can negotiate your salary in most cases. Also, go to each county government page and job search there as they tend to post quicker. You may also want to look at USAJOBS. Good luck...I've been doing CPS for seven years in NC so if you need any further help just post!!!!

Mental health in NC is pretty craptastical over the last several years. We went privatized and as such, all of the experienced public servants ran to higher paying private positions and were happy... until the private companies got greedy, cheated, got audited and shut down... leaving LCSW's with tons of experience high and dry and without employment.

Of course, not everyone... but some... and we are still recovering from that situation.

That being said... I just saw a Medical social work job in Raleigh this week on Craigslist. Clinical work might be easier for you to obtain, even with only 18 mths experience, simply because you have a FL LCSW... does your state have comity with NC? I know one gal who moved here with 20 years of clinical experience as an LICSW... and she had to take a job paying 32k a year doing a job I did before I finished grad school until she got her NC license straight...

These are questions to get answered now... start sending out resumes... see what sort of response you get...

The most easily employable thing here now is community support and intensive in home. Licensed clinicians lead the teams.. also, of course, do some outpatient and assessments...

Are you not going to be doing an internship for your doctorate? Or are you wrapping that up now? Are you looking for a postdoc in psych? Or just a typical social work job...

Pay scales are going to vary... I know some LCSW's who make as little as 35k with 5 plus yrs of experience. Some will do independent private practice and our reimbursement rates for Medicaid are not great and almost got slashed a few weeks ago with budget cuts. Do you sit on any panels? DSS is hardly hiring in any county, schools are definitely not hiring social workers, some hospitals are hiring but VERY few... not even large ones like UNC... they've had maybe 1 MSW-level posting in the last 6 months...

Good luck with your move, please PM me if you have any other questions. RDU is the BEST area in the state to find social work jobs right now. I just turned down an interview in Chapel Hill... it seemed like a GREAT agency... I just don't see myself in that community right now. Hit up Craigslist and just shoot out your resume... see what sort of feedback you get in return.

Be well.
