Hi! I'm interested in counseling positions and have actually applied to a few. I'd like a bit more information on the duties and responsibiities and a shared experience from a counselor would be awesome.
Hi Joan, it seems there aren't that many counselors in our community! I'll chime in at this time and mention that the counselling positions vary wildly in terms of responsibility. I'd highly recommend that you apply for the ones you qualify for and are interested in, and if you are a candidate of interest, the placement coordinator in charge of that position will be able to tell you more about the roles.
Joan and Janice,
Thank you both for your question and response! I had the same concern.
Thank you both for your time,
Had my IPI and was not selected..very disappointing HOWEVER...I'm remaining hopeful.
Hi Joan, I'm sorry to hear. I'm glad you are remaining positive as I believe you are a strong candidate, and I'm sure your placement coordinator who invited you for the IPI believes this as well! Here's a blog post that might help guide you: https://www.teachaway.com/2016/02/23/its-not-too-late-get-hired-overseas
Hey Janice, my husband and I are married, however I've kept my maiden name. Is there somewhere that I can annotate that so it doesn't negatively impact my opportunities. Also, as job are closing so are my hopes. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions....
