On Thursday, 6/18 @VACareers partnered with VHA recruiters and the national healthcare recruitment & marketing office during a Twitter Chat to address questions and comments from candidates. Multiple social workers joined and tweeted questions about vacancies, the application process and benefits using the #workatVA. Twitter chats serve as a forum for candidates to have personalized and direct access to recruiters who are prepared to accept resumes and process for consideration.

If you weren’t able to make the chat, check out our Events Calendar to view all upcoming chats, or tweet us anytime using #workatVA and the VA Careers team will respond promptly to your question. You may also forward your resumes to VACareers@va.gov.

Here are some of the common questions received during the chat and their answers:

“What types of career paths might a social worker have at VA?”


“In what locations is VA hiring social workers?”



“How would you describe the work culture at VA?”



“What qualifications do I need to be a social worker at VA?”
