I'm having a lot of difficulty. I recently earned my MSW degree and it took me 3 months to get a job offer that was even close to my field. I'll be working as an outpatient case manager for a psychiatric facility. The problem is that there simply does not appear to be any jobs or opportunities out there that would allow me to start working towards a license. Every position I applied for that had the face-to-face psychotherapy needed for the hours to obtain a license required at least two years of post graduate experience.
The job offer I did get requires only a bachelors degree and my Masters degree did nothing to help me to get the job. It is almost like I wasted my money by even going for an MSW.
How can I get licensed if I can't get into a position that will allow me to accumulate supervised hours? What options do I have? Should I just start thinking about a career change? Is there anywhere in this country where someone fresh out of grad school could start working on their license?
