    How important would you say your MSW-level concentration is or has been?

    When seeking employment, is it brought up often? I ask because when I did my BSW-level work, nobody seemed to care what my concentration was in or what coursework I had completed.

    I know there are many MSW-level practitioners out there who had no concentration at all.

    I began (but didn't finish) an MSW and was advised that the mental health concentration is best for hiring in CA.

    Thank you. That's what I've been told, too.
