What Do You Want to Accomplish as a Social Worker?


Interview for social work in group

You should always have a goal on your mind. Why do you want this job? Why did you decide for social sphere? What do you want to accomplish in your work?

Such questions always belong to an interview for any social work position. Do you know how to deal with them?


Speak about your mission

I am very proud of all people who decide to work in social sphere. You should be proud of yourself also, proud of your goals and good intentions you have in your life. Do not be afraid to talk about them in an interview. Show the people in the interviewing panel that your heart is on a right place, that you believe in a vital role of social work in our modern society. You want to help the others, that is the reason for your choice. See sample answers below:

I believe the young generation faces many problems right now. Children are often unable to find their place in life, and the increasing divorce rate does not help the issue. I want to improve this situation, at least in my city. I want to help children to find right direction in life, and to live better. That is what I want to accomplish as a social worker.

My dreams are not big. All I want to accomplish is to help individuals who weren’t lucky in life, as lucky as I have been. I want to do this on a daily basis and that is the reason why I chose social work for my field of study, and hopefully also for my field of work.

I hope to throw some light into current problems of modern society. I want to find out why so many people feel sad and unhappy in their daily lives. I hope to accomplish good results in the field of research, and provide expert opinion to help practical social workers in their daily job.
