My expertise and professionalism were encouraged.
Pros: Worked with very little supervision, as it was not needed.
Cons: Limited external professional development opportunities
I counseled students, their parents, staff, faculty, and occasionally administrators. The work with students focused on educational planning, career exploration and decision-making, financial aid planning, and job seeking preparation. I mediated the most emotional problems, that arose among all at the campuses. Regularly spoke within the college, at middle schools and high schools, at conferences and conventions with other colleges and universities, and at companies, with whom the HCC had industry review boards for curriculum programs.
