Dr. Rachel Feldwisch, director of counseling programs and assistant professor, was interviewed for an article, “Experts weigh-in on current job market trends,” for Zippia: The Career Expert.
What type of skills will young graduates need when they enter the workforce in the coming years?
“In many ways, counseling program graduates will need to have the same skills that they traditionally would need in order to become effective counselors. In addition to basic counseling skills, they will need to know how to apply ethical codes, how to assess client needs, how to use evidence-based practices, and how to use client data to inform a treatment plan. Students who graduate in 2021 will have the benefit of gaining clinical experience during one of the toughest times in modern history.”
