The Maryland Department of Human Services (DHS), the State of Maryland's social services agency, is looking for people interested joining them in their mission to pursue opportunities to assist people in economic need, provide prevention services, and protect vulnerable children and adults.
They have several introductory level job classifications for which we are currently conducting statewide recruitments and accepting applications, including the Family Services Caseworker Trainee (work providing direct social services to troubled individuals or families in Maryland and requires no experience, just a bachelor’s degree with a major in an appropriate behavioral science such as Social Work, Psychology, Sociology, Family Studies, etc. to apply), Family Investment Specialist I (work assisting State residents in determining the State assistance programs for which they qualify), Child Support Specialist Trainee and Child Support Specialist I (work involving investigating and analyzing child support cases and initiating appropriate actions to establish, maintain and enforce support payments for dependent children).
These recruitments will remain open through July 2, 2018, allowing everyone, including students nearing graduation with their bachelor's degrees, ample time to submit an application. (Anyone, including students within six months of graduating with an appropriate bachelor's degree towards meeting minimum qualifications may apply.) The resulting lists of eligible candidates will be used to fill vacancies in our Local Departments of Social Services and regional Offices of Child Support Enforcement throughout the state.
