This article reports the results of a study of the initial macro-level job responsibilities of over 2,000 MSW graduates who obtained their degrees from 1989 through 2007. It examines macro-level job duties performed in their employment within the first two years after graduation and investigates differences among those who graduated with concentrations in direct practice versus administrative and management practice. The research offers information on macro-level employment roles and expectations in early career stages, and builds an empirical base that can inform curriculum planning and development.
