By Neal Lepsetz
Daily Staff Reporter
Adam Cohen and Lisa Burger, grad-
uates of the University's Masters of
Social Work program, have capitalized
on a relatively open jobtmarket.s.
They also have put themselves in a
position to fulfill their aspirations of
making an impact on peoples' lives.
"You certainly don't do this for the
bucks," Cohen said. "You want to make
sure this is something you want to do."
The Social Work master's degree,
considered the preferred human-ser-
vices degree nationally, opens doors
and opportunities for those interested in
the field. The University's Social Work
program, ranked No. 1 in the nation by
U.S. News and World Report, boasts a
99-percent job acceptance rate from last
year's graduates seeking employment.
Cohen, who earned his master's
degree from the University in 1994,
works as a family therapist at SOS
Community Services in Ann Arbor. He
often aids families experiencing home-
lessness, participates in individual ther-
apy for members with chemical depen-
dency problems and in designing chil-
dren's after school activities.
"There is a lot of crisis intervention
because families in this program are
dealing with a lot of crisis in their
lives," Cohen said.
For Cohen, a key to his field lies in
empathy and recognizing how his per-
sonal "baggage" can impede his judg-
ment.
"if you have a client who you think is
being manipulative or resistant, you
have to look at the possibility that
they're pushing your buttons. that
something from your own experience
may be affecting your perception of the
situation." Cohen said.
A philosophy major from
Binghamton School in New York,
Cohen waited tables for a year before
determining his career direction. His
prior experiences as a camp counselor
and as a college intern at a shelter for
kids from abusive andneglectful homes
helped in his decision to enter the
University's Social Work program.
Cohen said that while a bachelor's
degree offers access to many entry-
level jobs, the master's degree is a much
greater asset in the social work field.
"To get ahead, you really need a mas-

ter's degree,' he said.
"The question at the masters level is
not whether you'll get a job, but what
kind of job you'll get," said School of
Social Work Assistant Director Tim
Colenbeck.
One of the best ways to find work
once the student has earned the degree,
recommends Burger, is through net-
working.
"You need to go and market yourself
and network, getting your name out
there so people are aware of what you
have to offer," Burger said.
Only about 30 percent of the
school's graduate studets find jobs
through newspaper ads. Most gain
employment through direct contact
with employers and identifying with as
many people as possible, Colenbeck
said. Students can access many willing
sources through the program's alumni
network.
Burger, a 1995 Social Work grad,
operates independently part-time as a
geriatric care consultant. She often
works to help the staff of long-term care
facilities to meet the needs of its resi-

MSW helps students tackle
crises, social problems

dents as well as helping to empower
them within their living environment.
Because of the growing geriatric
population, Burger said her field is
beginning to become a booming one.
"I think the .challenging part is
working with some for-profit agen-
cies which in time become more con-
cerned with making profit than with
providing the best care possible for
residents and their facilities," she
said.
