The Graduate School of Social Work learns of jobs from many area agencies, social work alumnae/i and area employers via multiple sources. Social Work as well as Human & Social Services job listings, among others, are posted for current students and alumnae/i in our on-line password protected job board, LanternLink.
Generated by the Bryn Mawr College, Career and Professional Development (CPD), this listing offers professional full and part-time jobs across a wide spectrum of categories. If you are an alumnae/i of GSSWSR, please call or email the CPD at 610-526-5174 or email@example.com and provide your date of graduation, your current email address and the correct spelling of your first and last name. You will be sent a reply allowing access to LanternLink using your email address as your username, and be given permission to set up a password to access the site.
Once you have your user name and password, go to brynmawr.experience.com and you will come to the Lantern Link sign in page. Once you have signed in, in the right box under "One-Click Searches", select Alumnae/i Jobs. Look through all the postings by rolling over job titles or clicking on the title for the full posing to be shown. You can narrow your search results by choosing "By Industry" and especially looking at the "Social/Human Services" listings.
Current GSSWSR students and alumnae/i have access to a career counselor conveniently located in the GSSWSR classroom building. The career counselor is available to:
All advisement meetings are confidential.
Planned conveniently during students' class breaks, career workshops address issues like licensure, resume and cover letter writing, networking and interviewing.
See the current schedule of workshops on the GSSWSR Events Calendar.
Many alumnae/i from the Graduate School of Social Work and from Bryn Mawr College are willing to talk with students and other alumnae/i about what they do. Our alumnae/i are among our most valued resources. If you are evaluating career opportunities, seeking information about employers or wish to learn more about a professional role, the advice of experienced alumnae/i can be invaluable.
