Melinda Lewis, LMSW will be guest expert for May 20th Social Work Chats. The Topic will be Political Advocacy in Social Work. #SWUnited
I graduated over the weekend. I’ve been furiously applying to jobs for the past two months. I’ve gone on several interviews and still have nothing. I know I only graduated over the weekend but I can’t help but being discouraged….I’ve got bills to pay. At least if I need government assistance I’ll know where to go since I have an understanding of systems and community supports…
Seriously, do any of you guys know any ways to get some money to avoid becoming homeless and dying of starvation? This is only marginally catastrophic thinking. I really am running out of money with nothing left. Ideas? Seriously! I’m applying for jobs like crazy, but so far I’m getting nowhere.
I don’t know exactly what skills and experience you have, if you want you can email me your resume at email@example.com and I will try to give you more guidance. Are you an LMSW or LCSW? Are you looking for direct practice work or a macro position?
Depending on your experience level you could try looking for contract work. I also suggest sending letters of introduction with your resume directly to agencies instead of relying solely on job boards. I find that sending it by mail or fax instead of email works better. Too many agencies use programs that filter their email and there is a risk that the person will never see your email because it ends up in the SPAM folder.
I’m not sure what part of NY your are in but I read on a FB group recently that Family Service League (on Long Island) is looking for family therapists. Best of luck.
