Yes, it is possible to get a counseling job with only a BA or BS degree but your options and compensation will be limited. You may be able to work in something like caseworker aide or some type of assistance position in which you work as a paraprofessional with counselors who are fully credentialed. Some professional counseling practices may also need staff to work in office administration. There are possibilities also at social and community organizations, such as counseling centers, youth clubs, and YMCAs. Check also at retirement homes. Some state agencies hire in their various health and welfare departments. So go to your state employment agency and inquire about those. You probably won't be doing any counseling in these positions but they offer you the chance to work with people, gain experience, and observe how professional counselors work. These positions will also look good on your resume later on. Good luck.
