Becky Schwartz Corbett, MSW, ACSW, leadership consultant and adjunct faculty, will be facilitating a session during MSW Orientation at The University of Alabama, School of Social Work on Friday, January 6, from 12:30pm-2:00pm. The theme for this session is, Social Work Career Preparation.
Students who attend will be welcomed to the profession; understand why attitude is key to their career success; reflect on time management and prioritization and begin an action plan to move their career forward; learn what it takes to be a professional social worker, including seeking licensure; and commit to an intentional personal growth philosophy and journey throughout their MSW studies and social work career. Ms. Corbett’s definition of a Coachable Moment…taking advantage of a moment in time to give an individual immediate and specific feedback, will be highlighted as a framework for students to focus on their job preparation and career success.
