What to expect during a counselor interview and your first day?
When you are ready to apply, ask for a copy of your application form and resume.
You may need to send a copy to the local employment service organization.
You should also sign a form stating that you are willing to work under the supervision of a counselor, but that you will only be supervised for an hour or two per week.
A job interview can last from three to six hours, depending on the position.
Your application form should include a statement of qualifications and work history, as well as a statement about how you plan to handle problems and how you will help people in your role.
If your application is approved, you will be scheduled to start your interview the following week.
You will need to bring with you: a copy or a photocopy of your transcript from your college or high school, if available, and a copy/transcript of your work history.
An original resume.
If a counselor is hiring for a position in a remote location, be aware that some job postings are limited to a certain geographic area, such as a rural area.
A letter of reference for the position is a requirement, as are copies of any recent employment history, job postings and a completed cover letter.
A completed cover sheet should include the name of the employer, a summary of the duties and responsibilities, and any contact information you need.
If the job requires you to be present at meetings, you should provide the name and phone number of your supervisor.
You must be prepared to give a copy (or photocopy) of all correspondence and work reports for the entire time you are on the job.
If required by your employer, you must sign a contract stating that the counselor will have full access to your personal files.
You cannot be fired if you fail to follow the procedures set forth in the contract.
If hired, you need to be prepared for a long and stressful job.
The job typically involves scheduling appointments, supervising clients, and doing all of the other routine work that counselors do.
You also may need some other responsibilities, such to be available during breaks, to be able to supervise your clients during work hours, and to have an active social life.
Your role can change with time, and there may be some overlap between the roles you work in and those you perform at home.
For example, if you are a homey, you might need to manage and monitor the activities of your clients and the people in their homes.
If this is your first job, it is important that you get a sense of what your job entails before applying.
You might find it helpful to ask questions to help you understand your role and what you will need in the workplace.
The interview process can be grueling.
It’s best to ask for time off or to be on call if you have a family member who has medical needs.
Some jobs may require more work, such in setting up the office, setting up a safe space, and dealing with other issues.
Some positions may require less work, and some may require just a small amount of time.
Your experience may be valuable to your counselor and may be helpful in recruiting the right person for your job. It
