Social Work and this Election

  1. I am actually re-evaluating my post-undergraduate plans because of this election.
  2. A lot of programs and services are going to have their funds cut, or drastically decreased as a result of a majority republican government.
  3. Looking forward, I don't think it would be wise to get my Masters right after receiving my Bachelors.
  4. I'm a junior, and if I get my Masters, I'd be seeking a job in about 3 and a half years.
  5. If Trump gets his way, a lot of programs will be cut or under-funded, so there will not be a huge need for social workers.
  6. I am almost thinking it would be smarter to try to secure a job right after graduation and work on my MSW at a later time.
  7. Side note, I've had approximately 10 panic attacks since Trump had been elected.
