Career choice factors for bsw students: A 10-year perspective
Journal of Social Work Education
This article examines the major factors involved in choosing to enter social work for 746 undergraduate students studied over a 1 0-year period. Its findings suggest that, although altruism remains the touchstone for their choice, students are motivated by both service to others and job self-interest. The findings also indicate that the dimensions of motivation for choosing social work have not significantly changed over the last 10 years. The implications for these findings are also discussed. © 1995 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
