Career Services at MSASS
The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, in collaboration with the CWRU Career Center, provides career assistance, job exploration and other related resources. These services are provided through one-on-one consultation, career counseling, self-assessments, mock interview services, and access to CWRULink, the Career Center’s online career management system.
Career Workshops enable students to focus on self-awareness techniques and skills. Students are encouraged to request customized workshops built around specific needs or interests. For more information, contact MSASS Career Services.
The CWRU Career Center also offers opportunities to attend career-related workshops. Just visit the online page for more information.
Field Education, an integral component of the MSASS program, enables students to gain valuable experience in the social work profession, preparing them to function as competent practitioners upon graduation. Field practice opportunities are used to integrate the core knowledge, skills, and values inherent in the profession utilizing our Ability-Based Learning Environment as the structure for field internships.
In some instances, the field site offers employment opportunities to students upon graduation. In all instances, the field education experience provides students with multiple opportunities to become proficient in the world of social work. The Field Education Seminar supplements the placement experience and provides students the opportunity to explore their strengths and preferences through discussion and through instruments such as the Learning Style Inventory. For more information, please contact Field Education Director Scott Wilkes at 216.368.2240.
MSASS has alumni and faculty with extensive knowledge of employment trends in the field on a local, regional, national, and international level. Alumni are encouraged to contact Pam Carson, Director of Development for Alumni at 216.368.2281 for individualized support and networking opportunities.
