In this Guide is a collection of articles that have appeared in The New Social Worker®: The Social Work Careers Magazine. The magazine, published since 1994, focuses on providing practical articles to help social work students and new graduates succeed in their new careers. For this volume in the “Best of The New Social Worker” series, we have chosen those articles that we think you will find most relevant as you start the new school term as a social work student. In addition, the editors asked a panel of The New Social Worker's writers and other social work experts for their tips for new and returning social work students.
