[cont., Part 2]
(As for the MEd in Counseling, I’d also love to hear of any possible schools that might also be a good fit in light of these factors, but so far I am not finding any.)
Job Market: Does anyone have feedback, advice, anecdotes, or links to resources about the job market for those counseling specialties/interests I mentioned?
Long term: *IF* I can get accepted into a program with funding and can successfully complete the degree, I also have an eye on Canada (for jobs, not grad. school because their MA programs are poorly funded for the most part). For one, my wife already has job opportunities there. And although some extra certification would be required for any work in professional counseling, the Canadian approach to mental health treatment and how much it is valued and subsidized by the socialized care systems seems great. (I also mention this for the sake of anyone here struggling on the counseling job market but who are mobile/flexible for such a move.)
Finally, thank you so much for any help or advice on these issues. I am clearly having a bit of difficulty in my search for this information, so that’s why I am bringing this to you—the experts.
