Regardless of the type of employment an individual chooses to pursue as a Licensed
Professional Counselor, Corbin emphasized the value of networking.
“Keep in touch with each other and the people who you graduated with because those
people become your colleagues,” Corbin advised.
Volunteering, she added, is another great way to gain experience in the field and
launch a career.
“One of the best ways you can network is to get involved in your local or state counseling
organization,” Corbin advised.
When searching for a career opportunity to pursue, Corbin suggests keeping an open
mind and taking risks.
“Make your own opportunities,” she advised. “Apply for jobs that are out of your reach.
You never know what the company might be looking for or how you can sell yourself.”
