What are some good opportunities for growth as a social worker? I've been in the same role for close to ten years, and while I love it, I know I can branch out a bit and probably even increase my salary. What have you all done?

Private practice. I’m making double now than 4 years ago. And working 35-38 hours a week. 30 days off a year.

Can you say more about how you made the switch?

Creating your own practice or if you don’t want to handle all the admin tasks, etc, work with an agency or group either full-time, part-time or as a supervisor if you’re licensed.

Growth is subjective so first sort out what you really want for yourself then explore opportunities aligned with that.

Feel free to send me a chat.
