Graduates of the Langara Social Service Worker Program have an excellent track record in gaining employment in the fields of work that interest them. Graduates are prepared for entry level employment in a variety of social service and health-related agencies. While some students may choose to continue with their education, many find immediate work at the entry level in a whole range of social and health services. The social service sector is dynamic and always evolving. Once graduates have found employment in an organization, many find that the development of new programs, staff turnover and changes in current funding priorities provide opportunities for advancement. Many graduates of the program who are considering continuing their education find that their certificate or coordinated diploma opens doors to employment and helps them to gain important experience. It also helps them to fund future educational opportunities.

Graduates are hired by agencies serving children and youth, programs for women, schools, Neighbourhood Houses and family serving organizations. They also find work in programs for persons with disabilities, advocacy programs, shelters for persons with mental health and substance abuse issues, seniors' programs, immigrant-serving agencies and programs for Aboriginal and First Nations Peoples.
