Hiring Yourself

Those of us looking for employment know how frustrating the job market is right now.  You apply to twenty jobs and are lucky to be called in for one interview.  As the months pass you begin to wonder what you will do.  Well, have you considered hiring yourself? As Social Workers we have options.  The most obvious is starting a private practice.  But what if you are not a clinician?  Consulting or establishing a not-profit may be the best fit for you.  The following links can help you get started.
