For anyone considering a career in one of the many counseling professions but undecided on which one to pursue, this book will be an excellent resource. It provides insight and information into the different career opportunities available and suggestions and activities to assess one's fit in one of these careers. These activities include exercises and self-tests to help readers explore their own personal characteristics and determine if they are on the right track to achieving their career goals. An overview of the different counseling positions available in several different types of practice settings - educational settings, private/independent practice, coaching and consulting, governmental and agency settings, and special settings/populations - give the reader a survey of the many possibilities available to a counseling professional. The author clearly explains the different types of licenses, certificates, and other professional counseling credentials which are necessary for specific positions and addresses the process of searching and applying for a job. Finally, the journeys of fourteen counseling professionals are presented, providing the career-seeker with a first-hand look at the process.
