Has anybody moved from HR to social work? How did you do it? Did you take a role to bridge the transition (ex. working in HR for a company that employs social workers)? I think social work would be better aligned to my personal values.

Actually I can only speak to having done the reverse. I started out in clinical social work and providing EAP services. Initially folks tried to pigeon hole me, I gained more hr trainings and have moved up the ranks. I have found my clinical background to be very helpful in assessing situations, providing solutions, employee relations.performance management/ coaching etc. Basically, a more comprehensive approach. Just need to solidify by credentials by taking the SCP exam in a few months.

Funny you should ask, as this is something I've been thinking of doing myself. My plan is to try and get my foot in the door somewhere and then see if I can transition internally from HR to hands-on social work. I'm also going back to school, so that should help as well.

Huh, I don't think I'd thought of that before. I'd imagine bridge transition might be the better way to do it. Or apply for some social work positions just to see what kind of feedback you get

I'm not sure if social work is the smoothest transition. You will really have to give yourself over to your career and there is not much separation between your home life and your work life. You think about your caseload 24/7 and the problems can be overwhelming depending on where you're going
