A panel of alumni will tell their stories and share their perspectives of how they navigated the system from graduation to clinical licensure. Each alumnus is in a different place in this process. The goal is to increase your understanding of the process and lessen the "anxiety" about what it takes to navigate the system.

Topics:

  • Preparing for the LGSW exam
  • What types of employment is considered clinical social work?
  • Strategies for finding employment
  • Developing a supervision plan
  • Creative ways of finding and meeting the supervision requirements
  • What if I change jobs?
  • What is "seat time"?
  • Preparing for the exam
  • Taking the clinical exam

Who should attend? Students interested in learning about employment, supervision and licensure processes after graduation.

Refreshments will be served.
