A college career counselor works in a college or university, helping students identify a career path that best fits their interests, experience, and major. They must also discuss the requirements for particular careers with students, and they must have contacts and resources for any additional student needs; this might include resources related to additional counseling and interview preparation, among other areas. Some college career counselor positions may require providing students with personal counseling as well. Generally, these counselors work full time in an office setting on a college or university campus.
