Does anyone have any suggestions about international work with governmental organizations, NGO's, internation aid organizations, humanitarian etc. I have an MSW and would love to do international work with an organization like Red Cross Red Crescent. Any suggestions, advice etc,?

Hi Matt, I noticed you posted on here over a year ago. I am also interested in doing international social work with through an NGO or the red cross. I was just wondering if you have had any luck with that. I received my MSW in Chicago, but I am currently living in the UK working as a child protection social worker.

i will be graduating with my msw in may 2013. i'm in my late 40's.
re 2nd year internship - i have two offers and can't decide. need advice. i'm interetsed in health care and geriatrics. i want to make sure i can get a job upon graduation. one internship office is with a state dept of aging. the other is at a community hospital on various floors (would work with geriatric patients i imagine but not a geriatric floor). any recommendations? the aging internship sounds interesting but i don't see many state or federal msw jobs (besides the VA Hosp which seems impossible to get into where I live). there seem to be more hospital jobs listed but they want experience (through internship i imagine). any advice would be appreciated.

I am interested in relocating to the UK, how is it possible for a American MSW to get a job there??
