Ready to Learn How You Can Break Into The Macro Social Work Field?
Learn step-by-step how to get from your current career position to having the insight, tools and strategy needed to land a macro social work role that aligns with your passions, skillset and unique social work niche!
Have you been given tidbits of information about macro social work in your BSW or MSW program, but still don’t know exactly what it is or how you can build a successful career in it?
Social Work programs tend to focus very heavily on the direct practice and therapeutic side of the field, but provide you with almost no information on macro social work, even though it has the opportunity to provide you with more leadership, higher pay and the chance to positively impact more lives! When it comes to bettering the lives of disadvantaged communities, macro social workers are in the position to make larger, and more systemic changes.
Attention: Burnt out social worker
Don’t think you have to leave the field altogether! There is more out there than direct practice.
You love helping the population you serve, but working directly with clients is leaving you feeling burnt out, over worked, under-paid and vicariously traumatized.
Do you feel like you are just putting a bandaid on the systemic challenges your clients are facing, but not able to actually fix the root problems? Believe me when I say I have been there, and these feelings are exactly why I moved on to macro social work!
If any of this resonates with you, let’s imagine something different:
Instead, you have a well paid role where you are working alongside community leaders and government officials to create large, transformative programs that can help entire communities; not just one person.
You have more flexibility in your work schedule because your days don’t consist of back-to-back meetings with clients and juggling large caseloads.
You have better work-life balance and can spend more time with your kids, family and friends, because you don’t have to take the trauma of your clients home with you.
Direct practice is a very necessary aspect of Social Work, and we need this side of the field! But it isn’t for everyone. And what happens after you have served your time doing direct practice, feel proud of all that you have done, but are getting an inkling that your time in direct is up? You don’t have to leave the field entirely!
Even if you did not focus on macro social work in school, you can still pivot and break into the sector. But you have to know the right strategies. You have to know what macro options are out there, what macro roles would best align with your strengths and how to actually find these jobs. As you've probably already discovered, finding these macro roles are more complicated than just putting "social work" in a job search engine. That’s where my course comes in!
Moving to more macro level social work will allow you to still make a positive impact on the lives of others, advocate for social justice and equity; but through programs, grant making, administration and community initiatives instead.

How to know if the course is for YOU:
You are at the beginning of your career journey, and curious about if macro social work is for you.
You are already in the social work field, but craving a change and feeling that macro social work makes sense for next steps.
You are already in the social work field, but curious about the full depth of what your social work degree has to offer.
You are in another field entirely, and looking to make a transition into social work and want to learn about your full options in the field.
The macro social work sector will continue to grow as conversations about social justice, equity and advocacy expand within the mainstream!
There are many rewarding and exciting macro level social impact jobs out there for us, but they will continue being snagged by those in other professions (Public Health, Public Relations, Human Resources, etc) because most social workers don’t even know they exist.
If you are ready to learn how you can take advantage of these fulfilling roles, I can’t wait to tell you more!
Meet your instructor:
I’m Gabby and I’m a seasoned Macro Social Work professional, Youtube Content Creator (over 700,000 views) and certified Career Coach.
I earned my Bachelors in Psychology in 2011, and my Masters in Social Work in 2014, and have worked in several fulfilling macro social work roles, including community organizing, program development and management, community development, volunteer engagement, and public health training.
In order to land these roles, I had to get clear on my personal mission, learn how to brand myself to attract ideal employers, understand what skills I needed to develop, set goals and take necessary action to reach them.
For my course, I've compiled and packaged all of this expertise and extensive research to pass on to you, so you can do the same!
I pursued the clinical track in my MSW program but I found myself more drawn to macro work after I graduated. As a recent graduate, this program was very helpful for me to narrow in my interests and roles to apply for in the macro field! I recommend this course, especially for recent graduates looking to enter the macro field.
