School Counselor Duties

A school counselor’s duties may vary depending on what grade level the hiring facility teaches, but many of the requirements and responsibilities are the same. A school counselor can assist students in helping them find their direction in life, recommending certain career or education paths after high school or giving students a good glimpse at the job market. School counselors help make fulfilling careers for students who have the potential to progress with their talents and abilities. Aside from career help, a school counselor plays a critical role in providing support and guidance, becoming a listening ear for a student’s personal, familial, or academic problems.A school counselor should be caring, considerate, patient and flexible.

School Counselor Education Requirements

First and foremost, a school counselor must have earned a four-year undergraduate degree in psychology, sociology, or even education. Those who have earned another type of bachelor’s degree can still qualify, as long as they progress to graduate school in a relevant field. A school counselor must have a master’s degree in counseling, which typically takes two to three years to earn. Then, a counselor will need at least two years of practical experience, as well as the proper licensing and certification required by the state and school boards. A school counselor must have hands-on experience working in a compassionate environment, and most possess the patience and skill necessary to help children in the best way possible.

School Counselor Job Market

Depending on the facility and grade level of the children, school counselor yearly salaries can vary greatly. Credentials and years of experience can also affect this earning potential.The rising enrollment in elementary, middle and high schools are creating a growing demand for school counselors, making it a great time to seek opportunity in this field.
