The Daily Nebraskan
In Social Work field
New and challenging opportunities in
the social work field are developing in
the public service for college men and
women, states Dr. Ellen Winston, Com
missioner of Welfare of the U.S. Depart
ment of Health, Education, and Welfare,
There is new emphasis on welfare
services in the public assistance program
for prevention of dependency and for
rehabilitation and there are related activ
ities in the "War on Poverty" under the
Economic Opportunity Act. These de
velopments have increased the need for
persons with a bachelor's degree, for en
tering case work positions in State and
local welfare agencies.
Most State civil service or merit sys
tems are currently scheduling spring ex
aminations which college seniors are eligi
ble to take. Many public welfare agen
cies also offer summer employment op
portunities to undergraduates, particular
ly between the junior and senior years.
All State and many local welfare agen
cies have educational leave plans to as
sist promising employees to secure grad
uate training and there are many schol
arships available in schools of social work.
Persons who receive a master's de
gree from a school of social work will
have excellent opportunities for advance
ment because of the shortages in this pro
fession. Personal qualities essential for suc
cess in any type of social work are emo
tional maturity and a basic interest in
helping people solve their personal and
The majority of social workers in pub
lic agencies provide social services to in
dividuals, families, or groups. However, a
large number of positions call for admin
istrative, consultative and supervisory
The many types of social work include
working with families having dependent
children, with aged persons, with persons
who are physically or mentally ill, with
persons who are physically disabled, and
with children who need homes or who are
in foster or adoptive homes, or who are
delinquent or in danger of becoming de
linquent. Social research is another related field
of work, calling for graduate training in
the behavioral sciences and in research
and statistics. For persons with a feeling
for people, and who are interested in help
ing fhem, social work is a challenging and
President Johnson has said: Social
workers are the front line troops in our
war on poverty. They treat the social ills
of society as the physician treats its physi
cal Dls. Our nation needs their valuable
help today, and this need will grow as
our society undergoes the changes that in
evitably accompany progress.
Positions in State and local welfare
agencies are filled by competitive exam
inations administered by the State civil
service or merit system. Examinations in
the States are held one or more times dur
ing the year, with a spring examination
designed to give an opportunity for seniors
to qualify for a job and establish their
eligibility by graduation.
Information and State application
forms can usually be secured through the
college placement office. In any event they
can be obtained from the State civil serv
ice or merit system agency.
Details about opportunities, scholar
ships and requirements for admission to
graduate schools of social work may be
obtained from the National Commissions
for Social Work Careers, 345 East 46th
Street. New York, New York 10017, or
