5 Common Career Paths For a Counselor


A therapist is responsible for improving the patients' health conditions by evaluating their needs and providing physical and mental support. Therapists are licensed, medical professionals who specialize in different areas to perform treatments and bring relief to patients. Some of their duties include diagnosing patient's problems, performing counseling services, monitoring medication progress, customizing therapy activities for pain management, and consulting other health professionals as needed. Therapists must have extensive knowledge with the medical industry to detect patients' conditions easily and provide effective medications.

Social Worker

Social workers help their clients get through problems that they may be facing. Social workers help identify individuals or groups of people, usually families, who may need assistance, generally through a set of pre-determined criteria. They then determine the best ways to help their clients by interviewing them, getting to know them, and understanding the context of their lives. They create plans that will help their clients become better, such as integrating into a new environment, assisting them in their needs, or even rescuing them from their current place. Social workers have good interpersonal skills and communication skills.

Certified Nursing Assistant

A certified nursing assistant generally assists patients in their healthcare needs and medical procedures. They support patients in their daily activities by monitoring patients' temperature and food intake, ensuring the cleanliness of the patient's room, and keeping documentation of patients' conditions for reference of nurses and doctors. A certified nursing assistant should also communicate with patients' families and provide updates as often as needed. It is also important that a nursing assistant is patient and compassionate enough to attend to direct patient needs, which could get demanding or challenging at times.

Team Leader

Team leaders are responsible for managing a team for a specific project or work component. They primarily guide the team members and ensure that they are still working towards the set goals. Team leaders create strategies to reach goals, cascade the goals and strategies to team members, assign tasks, conduct periodic check-ups on the roadmap towards the goals, foster an engaging work environment, motivate and coach team members, monitor team performance, evaluate the strategies and come up with mitigating plans as needed. They are also responsible for reporting the team's progress to higher management.


Tutors are individual contributors who make sure that students assigned to them can understand classroom lessons. They are often full-time educators themselves, but they may also be working in other fields and are only passionate about teaching. Tutors usually meet students after school to go over any lesson that the students find challenging. They assist students with their homework or other schoolwork that the students may need help in. At times, tutors are tapped to help students study for future lessons, meaning that they go through classroom lessons in advance.

Counselor Jobs FAQs

Can A Counselor Make 100k?

Yes, you can make $100,000 per year as a counselor. While possible, it is unlikely to earn over $100k as a counselor because even higher-paid positions do not typically earn more than $64,000 per year. The average annual salary for a counselor is $42,602.

Do Counselors Get Paid Well?

No, counselors are not typically paid well. Counselors earn around $56,310 per year or $25.54 an hour. The range in earning for a counselor, however, can range from as low as $16 an hour to as high as $42 an hour -- factors such as educational experience, type of counselor, and location all impact earning potential.

What Are The Career Opportunities For Counselors?

There are many career opportunities for counselors. The important part is knowing what you wish to specialize in and focusing as much study and hands-on experience in that area.

After earning a bachelor's degree and obtaining an entry-level position, you can advance your career in counseling by accruing clinical experience supporting clients of differing ages, gender expressions, ethnicities, and economic standing. The more people you work with, the better you will become at creating personalized treatment plans and intervention strategies.
