What is a Career in Social Work?

LifePage – explains why is Career Counseling important?

Social Work


I find a Career in Social Work very interesting. Internet is brimming with pages on How to get into Social Work, while I want to first understand What is a Career in Social Work. I was Googling about a Career in Social Work and was lucky to find: https://www.lifepage.in/careers/social-work-2

Dr Kiran Purohit's overview!

With 29 years of professional experience, Dr Kiran Purohit understands Social Work. Dr Kiran Purohit has worked in Social Work as Social Worker in SNDMS-Dehradun. In Dr Kiran Purohit's own words, this is how Dr Kiran Purohit got into Social Work: "I have been awarded honoree doctorate from Chennai. I started doing social work in 1988. In 1994 established my own NGO called SNDMS. I have been recognized for my efforts in social work nationally and internationally." Dr Kiran Purohit has a profile in a very interesting format on: https://www.lifepage.in/page/kiranpurohit

Career Video on Social Work

In a video, Dr Kiran Purohit has talked about various aspects of a Career in Social Work. Dr Kiran Purohit started by explaining Social Work as: "Social work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims to help people develop their skills and their ability to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems." 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. Dr Kiran Purohit touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Knowledge of Law
  • Sociology
  • Psychology
  • Languages
  • Mass Communication
  • Current Affairs
This Career demands specific Skills which only an experienced professional can lay out.
Dr Kiran Purohit then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Social Work:
  • Passion and Dedication
  • Patience
  • Multitasking
  • Teamwork
  • People Skills
  • Time Management
  • Decision Making
  • Hiring
Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Dr Kiran Purohit believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Social Work:
  • Vast Exposure
  • Social Impact
  • Respect and Recognition
  • Immence Satisfaction
After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Dr Kiran Purohit believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Work:
  • High Risk
  • Uncertainities
  • Politics
  • Old Customs and Culture
  • Cyber Crime

In the final section of the video Dr Kiran Purohit 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/20170613-0003
