Career and Employment Counselors


Employment of school and career counselors is expected to grow by 8 percent, much faster than the average for all careers, through 2029, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The coronavirus pandemic has altered how counselors work, with many counseling people remotely through video conferencing. Employment growth in the field may slow down slightly into 2021, but is projected to pick up again in the coming years. Going forward, increased school enrollments, especially at the college level, will mean more students needing the services of career counselors. As an increasing number of community colleges, four-year colleges, and graduate schools open and expand onsite career centers to help students develop skills to prepare them for transition or new careers in the workforce, the demand for employment counseling jobs should increase.
