Child Welfare Case Manager: It’s More Than a Job


Child welfare is a challenging field with a high turnover rate. Research shows that a realistic preview of the job, given during recruitment, can help ensure that new hires are a good fit for the position, thus increasing retention.
The video below is part of a campaign, developed and produced in a collaboration between the South Carolina Department of Social Services and the Center for Child and Family Studies. The media is used to recruit employees for the South Carolina Department of Social Services.

The campaign includes
• four short videos, like the one below, for use on social media and at career fairs
• 78 social media image posts with quotations from child welfare case managers (examples below)
• one 18-minute video to be shown to applicants during the interview process
