Social work is a profession devoted to helping people function the best they can in their environments. This can mean providing direct services or helping individuals, groups and communities solve problems. It also can mean working for change to improve social conditions.
Social workers should have a strong desire to help others, effective communication skills, a sense of responsibility, and the ability to manage time effectively. Many human services jobs involve direct contact with people who are vulnerable to exploitation or mistreatment, so patience and understanding are valued characteristics.
