Career and Employment Counselor Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Career and Employment Counselor?

Career and Employment Counselor in Canada:
"Rewarding work."
Pros: The staff I work with are a major reason I enjoy this work. The people are energetic, driven and fun. We assist in training education and employment search for individuals who otherwise would not have these opportunities and it is rewarding. The smaller staff numbers and work environment means more solid relationships with co-workers and management.
Cons: The rate of pay is lower than the average for this type of employment. There is a certain level of disorganization that needs to be addressed. There are issues with communication between the corporate side of this agency and the front line staff. There needs to be more consideration towards treatment of staff and wages.
