Are you exploring career options related to your School of Social Policy and Practice degree? Are you in need of some inspiration and advice from recent graduates? Look no further than the Career Plans Survey reports on the Career Services website. These reports are compiled each year and offer information on the post-graduate plans of recent Penn graduates. Reviewing this information can be a helpful starting point if you’re wondering how or even where to begin your job search.
Why not check out where other SP2 graduates have landed? You may learn of organizations that you were not aware even existed. You may also get ideas if you plan to move to a different area of the country. Are you interested in a less traditional career track? You will find that alumni of SP2 have paved the way. Even beyond salary and employer information, the SP2 Career Plans Survey reports summarize the valuable advice of these same outgoing students. You will find tips on networking, job search strategies that worked for others, as well as words of encouragement. I recently met with a School of Social Policy and Practice student who benefited from these reports just by reading the job titles listed. She was able to cast a wider net in her job search with a better understanding of some of the types of positions available to new MSW graduates. The survey information also confirmed her salary expectations. From here she’s researching organizations and plans to schedule informational interviews – all from reviewing the data available on our website. Why not give them a try?
