I am considering pursuing school counseling. Are there any school counselors on this board that would like to share their experience(s)?

I'm not a counselor, but my best friend went back to school to get her MA in counseling several years ago hoping to switch from teaching. She's looked for the past two summers and hasn't been able to get a job in counseling, even with looking at multiple parts of the state. Everyone is making cuts and she says all of the jobs are for school psychs. Just something to be aware of- I'd consider the job market in your area. Even if the market is good, there are generally only a couple of counselors for an entire district, so still not tons of jobs.
