Landing a Macro Social Work Job

By Rachel L. West
Advocacy & Community Outreach Consultant

Dorlee from Social Work Career published an interview with me last week.. 3 Secrets Every Macro Social Worker Must Know covers career tips and resources for macro social workers. I talked a bit about how I got into to community practice work, the 7 top advocacy tools I think macro practitioners should use, community practice professional associations, and more. I have included a couple of snippets from the article below:

Thanks to Rachel, you will learn:

  • The Top 7 Advocacy Tools/Resources

  • The Key Professional Organizations/Associations to Join

  • 3 Must Know Job Search Tips [see infographic for cheat sheet]

  • 3 Best Macro Social Work Resources and more! 


The best thing any job seeker can do is network like your life depends on it. You want to seek out any kind of networking opportunity, including volunteer work. Make sure people already in your network know what type of work you are looking for. You never know who knows who.

In addition to being the founder of The Political Social Worker blog, I am a consultant. My consulting practice offers advocacy and community outreach solutions to nonprofits, social good organizations, and private practitioners. Additionally, I offer career coaching to macro social work students and professionals.


  1. Excellent source of information! Without the information laid out here in this blog I would be misdirected in my efforts to seek employment on the macro level
