Social Work Career Development

A Handbook for Job Hunting and Career Planning, Second Edition

Carol Nesslein Doelling, MS, is director of career services at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work (GWB) at Washington University in St. Louis. She provides comprehensive career services for social work students and alumni, recruitment services for employers, and information on the social work job market to faculty.

Ms. Doelling developed the Job Market for MSW Graduates (with Barbara Matz, EdD), an annual report on the job-search experience of new MSWs nationwide. Later, she created Social Work and Social Services Jobs Online (with Violet Horvath, PhD, MSW), a career Web site especially for social workers. She has presented at annual meetings of Career Development and Social Work Education, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and its chapter affiliates.

She cofounded and hosted the first Career Development and Social Work Education conference. In 2003, she chaired the 11th conference, which was an Invitational Meeting on Recruitment, Retention, and Succession. The meeting, held at Washington University, brought together social work career specialists, executives from large service providers and national networks of social services, and representatives from NASW and CSWE.
