Answer

I am guessing that you trying to fulfill some specific requirements of an assignment. Sometimes what is available simply does not match an assignment. In this case I would recommend using an article from each of the groups that have articles available:

Articles that forecast the future of social work with charts
There are two articles (at time of this search) that forecast the future of social work and have charts. They are published by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is considered the authoritative source on employment forecasts, but the publications are not in an academic journal. You can view them from the link below. If you are off campus, you'll need to log in with your COM ID and last name.

Academic Articles on Social Workers
Meanwhile there are numerous articles on social workers that are from academic journals. I have done a search that focuses on the career aspects of social work. If you follow the link, you can check the Academic Journals box under Source Types to take out all the article that aren't academic. You can then review to see if there are any you can use.

If you don't think this will work for your assignment, it might be a good idea to talk to your instructor and explain what is available. Also, please feel free to contact us again if you have some more information you'd like to give us, or if you want to take your research in a different direction.
