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 #job-search

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 #counseling
