brighter thanks to new numbers released by The employment site that specifically
lists jobs in the counseling field reported an increase in open positions over the past several months, indicating
a positive trend for the future of those in this industry. Specifically, the site reported a 7.07-percent increase in
positions between August and November and a 1.71-percent increase between October and November. Those
who wish to search jobs on the site would have found 15,221 positions in October and 15,485 positions in

Disorder Counselors are projected to increase by 27-percent.

soundly backed up by the BLS data,” says Barnes. “Really, anyone looking to get into this field will likely find
work quickly if the number of positions continues to rise at this same pace.” The BLS projections indicate that
is very likely to happen.

Still, those who are nervous about entering any industry like counseling should keep a close watch on for its open position numbers. This can give employees an up to the minute look at
how their field is fairing in the economy. “There will always be a need for counselors,” says Barnes,
“Thankfully, most economic projections seem to agree.”
