Very few youngsters like to take up social work as a career. Discuss reasons why they do not take it up seriously.
There are a lot of career opportunities available to the young generation. They are always interested in something new every day. Therefore, a field where they have to help others without receiving any proper payment is not given a thought. It’s not that youngsters lack kindness. They do understand their responsibility towards the society, but they don’t really think of it as an option for a full-time career. In today’s money minded society, youngsters are constantly trying to earn a good living. Social work is not an area that will help them achieve their financial goal. Also, the importance of social work needs to be taught to them at a primary level. Only then will they realise the need for it and might think of choosing it as a career later in life.
