Hey everyone, So the slump in the economy has forced a steep rise in social welfare programs. (Although public health programs probably need it more, but that is another topic.) Keeping this in mind, do you think it is a wise choice to seek employment in these fields? (I am trying to decide what to major in) The reason I ask, is because I just read this article detailing social rewards to be reaped from a career in community service. I know this kind of weird to some people, but this is actually a hugely growing profession. (Hugely growing? Does that sound weird to anyone else? Maybe it's just me...) Anyway, before I get derailed, I just wanted to ask you guys what you thought and if anyone here has worked in a community service career?
