    Yes, but often county/state jobs (like child welfare) come with the best salary/benefits/stability.

    Often counties hire developmental disability workers with bachelor's degrees. (you usually have to have a bachelor's to do child welfare work.) Head start programs also have home visitors. Some chemical dependency programs hire AA and BA level workers. They prefer you have a certificate in drug recovery, or classes at the associate's level in drug treatment. Nursing homes hire social workers at bachelor's level for discharge planning, and many nursing/senior homes hire activity aides at entry level.

    There are many areas to work in on graduation here in Australia.

    Mental health, aged, child protection, courts, prisons, veterans affairs, defence, domestic violence, sexual assault centres, indigenous affairs, welfare agencies, charities, community centres, schools, community development etc etc

    You would obviously need to demonstrate an interest in the field you were applying for and hopefully some volunteer experience.

    Graduating with a Bachelor of Social Work takes four years (full-time) here.
