The research project presented in this book describes the stories and meaning-making processes two students participating in the social work program at Central Queensland University and I use to understand our career choice experiences.Having identified the importance of caring as a pivotal theme in the professional discourse and what drew us to social work, we explore other experiences that tend to support womens entrance into the profession but challenge mens participation.

Drawing on the metaphor of a quilt to describe our career choice experience, this project draws attention to how aspiring social workers tend to carefully choose, cut and join together bits of gendered narrative material to create a professional story that both legitimises their entrance into the profession and to position them within the larger career domain.
