How do I start a Career in Social Development?

I find a Career in Social Development very interesting. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Social Development is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Social Development. My research about a Career in Social Development became a lot more meaningful when I found: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20190821-0001/Arts/Social Work/Career-in-Social-Development/english

Tanvi Rawat's perspective!

Tanvi Rawat has worked in Social Development for 2 years & 6 months. Tanvi Rawat has worked in Social Development as Manager of Special Projects in Foundation for Excellence. In Tanvi Rawat's own words, this is how Tanvi Rawat got into Social Development: "Coming from a journalism background, I had very closely encountered the suffering of the underprivileged section of our society. After working and gaining experience in the corporate, I decided to dedicate my time for the upliftment of such people. Work experience in both media and corporate came in handy in networking and finding a platform, which could utilise my skills and experience required in this field." This link showed on the first page of search results for Tanvi Rawat: https://www.lifepage.in/page/tanvirawat

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Social Development and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Social Development. Tanvi Rawat touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Social Injustices

  • Patience & Tolerance
  • Organizational Skills
  • Multitasking
  • Mental & Physical Agility
  • Emotional Quotient
  • Networking
  • Communication skills
  • Volunteering Work

This Career has an interesting list of Positives.

There are a few Challenges in this Career which one needs to be cognizant of.
And, Tanvi Rawat believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Social Development:
