How can I get work experience as a social worker?

I'am about to graduate from college and I want to get a job as a counselor, or social worker, but the jobs I have found want at least one to two years of work experience in the field of social work, or counseling. etc.. Even my friends that have graduated ahead of me have this problem. How can I get around this??

Go work for a nonprofit or volunteer. Your college should have provided you with an internship since you need clinical hours to be certified by the state

Your college should provide you with an internship or externship. If they don't, they you can try to volunteer at a domestic abuse shelter, community 211; but again, these are unpaid volunteer positions. Hope this helps.
