Let your altruism shine
If you enjoy the feeling of helping people, you might want to consider a career in human or social services. Some jobs in the social service industry include advisors, counselors, social workers, and human resource assistants in both profit and nonprofit organizations.
As the Baby Boomers age, demands in the industry will continue to grow rapidly. People with honed communication and problem solving skills are ideal candidates for human and social services.
On Wednesday, January 21 DePaul will be hosting a networking event for students considering careers in human and social services. Professionals from the field will be holding discussions about the nature, rewards, and challenges of working in the social service industry.
If it’s a career path you’re pursuing, this is a great networking opportunity to meet professionals already working in the field. If it’s one that you’ve thought about, the event is a great opportunity to get a feel for what life in the human and social service industry is like.
The free event will be held in the Lincoln Park Student Center, Room 120 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. You can register online through Monday on DePaul’s Erecruiting page, or you can register onsite.
