  9. To break it down a bit better. BSW pay is very low for someone with a Bachelors Degree. Even with a Masters the pay still doesn't equal out unless you have your own private practice. I have a friend who graduated with a degree is logistics management and he got a job starting off at 80K a year. And they are paying for his masters degree.

  17. With a bachelor's degree I didn't think you could do much except being a case worker? At least here in the U.S
    I would need a masters and a clinical license to do therapies right?

  20. I've just recently discovered your videos. I really appreciate your perspective on social work. Great questions with succinct answers. Thank you very much!

  21. Since being a MSW my salary increased over 20,000. That is a big jump in my income that allowed me to move to the suburbs. I am also planning on becoming licensed early next year; therefore, it will allow me to earn more.

  22. U can make ok money starting off like 45 to 50. But if u become a supervisor or a director u can easily make 75k and over My ex gf worked at acs NYC as a program director and was making close to 97 thousand with 9 years experience

  23. I have my MSW and became licensed. I recommend going that route if you want to make decent money. I also really enjoy your videos!!
