Will going to a community college before university help someone from a rural community adjust to city life.

I live in a very rural community with a population of 420 people. My highschool only has 12 people and I think going to a smaller community college will help me become accustomed to being around thousands of people.

How do people with "helping jobs" manage their stress?

I have heard that counseling and work in social services can be very stressful. As an aspiring counselor, I'm wondering what methods do people in those fields use to manage their work related stress? #career-path #counseling #stress-management

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

I heard about the "six second rule" but it's difficult to shorten my resume without feeling like I'm leaving out vital information. #job-search #resume #interviews #resume-writing #job-application
