Counseling Job Description

A caring, calm and sympathetic manner is a key requirement for anyone considering counseling as a career, with qualifications required based on the level and complexity of the work.

Counselors are there to help people who have difficulties in their lives, whether it’s a child having educational problems in school, a young adult suffering from substance abuse or an adult with mental health problems.

Counselors must be good listeners as they may have to deal with family breakups or emergency situations where quick reactions are vital.

Higher level jobs may require a Bachelor’s degree though are many opportunities to take up a role at entry level with a good general education.
