What should you do when you aren't getting replies from job postings?

I have applied for many positions on Idealist.org and Craigslist and haven't gotten any responses. Should I follow up or possibly change my methods, if so does anyone have any suggestions? #career #jobs #career-counseling...

Which age group is the easiest to work with while working as a career counselor?

I'm interested in working with teens and adults as these age groups are more likely to be working than the elderly but also am looking to have a well rounded client base. #career-counseling...

How does a counselor figure out which areas they would like to specialize in? For example a person may specialize in Anxiety, Depression, and Anger Management and work in with the subgroups such as Self-esteem, Addiction, and Family Conflict.

Do counselors learn which areas they would like to specialize in while they are in school or do they learn while working for a number of years? #career-path...

What are some of the worst job sites for finding non-profit work?

I have been using Idealist and not finding many current jobs. Craigslist also has not provided many great non-profit jobs. Should I just use any job posting site and hope that I find something? #job-search #nonprofits...

Are there ways to deal with an unprofessional coworker without involving hr or is it always better to bring in a supervisor?
