What are the pros and cons to becoming a child welfare social worker? What is the job like?

I have always wanted to become a Spanish teacher but just recently I decided I was very interested in social work. I have a BA in Spanish literature and now I am going to try and apply to get a Masters in Social Work. Any advice from actual social workers in this department? Are there many jobs available in that field? What can I do to make my graduate school application look better since I have absolutely no experience in social work?
