Career and Employment Counselors and Technicians
Growth in the field of employment counseling should be about as fast as average from 2010 through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. One reason for this growth is increased school enrollments, especially at the college level, which means more students needing the services of career counselors. Another reason is that there are more counselor jobs than graduates of counseling programs. Opportunities should also be available in government agencies as many states institute welfare-to-work programs or simply cut welfare benefits. And finally, in this age of outsourcing and lack of employment security, "downsized" workers, those reentering the workforce, and those looking for second careers all create a need for the skills of career and employment counselors.
