As problems like poverty, hunger, diseases, drug addiction, and violence continue to challenge our society today, the need is growing for people who are willing to help individuals with these issues. The demand is high and predicted to continue to increase for social workers committed to a career of service to people who need assistance. The young adults of today will be the job force of tomorrow, so choosing a career that will best fit with the needs of the changing world will be important to job satisfaction and a successful life. With the vast array of career and job options, it will also be important for young adults to understand which work will be the best match for their interests, talents, goals, and personality types. Certain careers are expected to gain importance within the early decades of the twenty-first century. The United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs in social work are on track to grow faster than the average rate for all occupations. Social work is not likely to make you rich, but if you choose this career you will be making a difference in the lives of others—and that can be more fulfilling than money!
