Are social workers that work for the government required to be licensed?
I have a BS in psychology, have been working as a social worker. The new job I applied for wants a "licensed social worker". Am I still eligible even though I'm not licensed? The only thing that is prohibiting me is that I have a degree in psych and not social work. Monique, my state offers a "social work technician" license. I am qualified for that. Will that help me get jobs?

You can often become licensed with your degree, but each state is different. Call the job placement number and ask.
