I think Social Work is a great Career option. I want to first understand What a Career in Social Work entails before I invest time and effort to figure out How to start a Career in Social Work. My research about a Career in Social Work became a lot more meaningful when I found: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20161013-0001/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-Social-Work/english

Career Video on Social Work

In a video, Mercy Phuntsog Nath has talked about various aspects of a Career in Social Work. Mercy Phuntsog Nath started by explaining Social Work as: "Social work is an academic and professional discipline that seeks to facilitate the welfare of communities, individuals, families, and groups. It may promote social change, development, cohesion, and empowerment. Underpinned by theories of social sciences and guided by principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility, and respect for diversities, social work engages people." I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.


I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Social Work and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Social Work. Mercy Phuntsog Nath touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Psychology
  • Law
  • Contextual Knowledge
90% success in real life depends on Skills. It is crucial to understand these.
Mercy Phuntsog Nath then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Social Work:
  • Public Speaking
  • Networking
  • Fund Raising
  • Team Working
This Career has an interesting list of Positives.
Mercy Phuntsog Nath believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Social Work:
  • Altruistic Satisfaction
  • Recognition
Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.
And, Mercy Phuntsog Nath believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Work:
  • Materialistic Context
  • Public Light

In the final section of the video Mercy Phuntsog Nath talks about How a day goes in a Career in Social Work. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Social Work, that I have ever come across. To see the full Talk, one needs to install the LifePage Career Talks App. Here is a direct deep link of the Video: https://lifepage.app.link/20161013-0001
