What are some good clubs to join if you are a aspiring therapist (major in sociology)?

I am currently a sophomore in high school (private) that does not offer a lot for the studies I want to pursue. I am hoping to join clubs outside of my school (tri-state area) that focus around sociology, can anyone suggest any clubs for me to join?

Could a bubbly person thrive in financial/business planning and guidance?

I'm interested in math and helping people, so financial or business planning/guidance seems pretty cool, but I'm nervous about getting bored at work. I'm a bubbly people-person and love problem-solving. However, the idea of going into a career with so much paperwork and office work seems awful, but again, I love math and helping people. (I'm still in highschool, so this isn't a binding idea, just something I'm curious about!) Any thoughts on whether this wouldn't be a great career for lively people? I also am still struggling with confidence and am not awesome at being decisive and standing up for myself in front of other people. I can do that behind the scenes, though. If that makes sense!

Work values for an academic counselor

In a high school setting, many students have extreme issues, be it with mental health, family, drugs, poor academic performance, etc. As a counselor, it should be one of your core values to care. However, where is the line drawn? To what point can you help them without crossing boundaries or compromising yourself?

The Demand for High School Academic Counselors in 5 Years

As a high school academic counselor, you have likely witnessed massive layoffs of counselors during recessions such as the one during Covid-19. Simultaneously, most can agree that in California at least, there is a huge lack of academic counselors in comparison to students. Where do you see the demand for academic counselors in five years, and how easily do you think new graduates will be able to get internships/ a job?

Do I have to have experience as a teacher to be a school guidance counseler?

I am willing (and eager) to eventually go back to school for a Master's in Counseling & my Pupil Personnel Services Credential, as required by the state of CA. While I have experience within the classroom and in mentoring/tutoring positions, I am not sure I am willing to go back to school for a teaching credential and teach for a few years before moving on to counseling. Would I be less likely to receive job offers because I have not specifically been a teacher?

What do you do, when you don't know what to do with the rest of your life?

How do you know when you are 18 and starting to think about your major what you really want to do with the rest of your life? What if you are unsure? Did they talk to you about careers in high school? Mine didn't. It was accelerated, average, and vocational, oh wait and farmers. Maybe I should get a career in guidance counseling and sit in an office and hope I make it through another year (sarcastically speaking). #interviews #recruiting #guidance-counselor #career-guidance #undecided

Can I major in zoology and then minor in elementary teaching? Or the other way around?

I have always had an interest in becoming a zoologist, basically since 6th grade, but I have also wanted to become a teacher for maybe first or second graders. My top choice would be zoology, but I am afraid that there won't be many jobs in my area, so I would like a backup plan. #college #teaching #college-major #biology #college-minor #guidance-counselor #zoology #elementary-education

Should I go to a school that does not offer my major?

Since high school my dream colleges have been mainly schools like Tufts University and Brandeis University. I have visited both colleges and found their diversity, size, and culture to be desirable. The only hindrance is that all these liberal and research based colleges does not have my major, accounting. I am 100% set on accounting, but my only worry is that these schools will not help me reach the requirements to sit for the CPA or other accounting exams. Will this be a problem for me in pursuing a career in accounting if I attend these schools as an economic or business major? Do you think it is better to stick to a school that offers accounting or attend one of my dream colleges? #guidance-counselor #school-counselor #education-counselor

Should I drop a difficult class I enjoy but find challenging and might negatively affect my G.P.A?

So, when I was younger I always thought I'd like physics and took a class this semester in college. I would love to learn the material, but had to drop it after it became apparent the class would negatively affect my G.P.A. Now I'm caught in a dilemma, do I take the class again next semester and risk wasting money and possibly hurting my G.P.A. ? Or should I just forget about taking the class altogether and try to learn on my own. #professor #physics #guidance-counselor

How do I gain experience for my dream job when my rigorous major keeps taking up all my time?

My name is Troy and I am currently a freshman in College. As of now I am studying engineering because I do love it and feel working as an engineer for a few years might be a good ideal until I can get my feet of the ground with my true passion - film making. However, if possible, I would love to graduate college and go strait to work in the film industry. My only problem is that in order to do this I will need previous film experience (experience while in college) however with engineering classes taking up so much of my time, I am not able to film as much as I would like to and hence, if this continues, will not be in the position to make filmmaking my immediate career. Even worse, I am not eligible even to get film experience over the summer through Film internships because film is not my major. My question hence is, how can I find the time to gain experience for my film career when my major is taking up so much of my time and excluding me from desirable opportunities? #film #engineering #guidance-counselor
