SAGE Guide to Social Work Careers: Your Journey to Advocacy  offers first-hand stories from practitioners to help inform and guide students on how they can become advocates for social justice issues. The author fully addresses careers that are available to BSW and MSW degree holders. Stories from professionals in each of the social work areas (criminal justice, housing, elderly, etc…) provide students with real accounts of the career paths and the working experiences they can expect to face once they graduate. Throughout her book, Melissa Bird demonstrates how students can take their work at a micro level and become an advocate for issues their clients may be facing.
