I advise that you work on this before graduating. Look for part time entry level jobs at hospitals and/or community mental health centers while still working on your degree. This will give you a head start when you are applying for jobs after graduation. You will have job experience in the field. Also, complete an internship while in college. Internships can lead to employment after graduation if positions are open and you have worked hard and done a good job while there. One last thing, create a network of professionals in the field that you can later use for referrals and guidance. Keep in touch with professors that you connected with, reach out to supervisors at work for advice, and stay connected with classmates. I continue to receive referrals in my private practice from those I went to grad school with and worked with in internships and previous positions. Hope this helps you. Good luck!
