Career and Employment Counselors in the Corporate World

15 07 2013

Where do career and employment counselors work in corporate America?  I want to be very clear that I am not addressing  career advising, rehab counseling, career coaching, or executive coaching.  The scope of this posting is limited to career and employment counseling.

What do career and employment counselors do?  We basically learn theoretical models for making effective job search, career, or academic decisions, then we use these models to help others.  Some of us are licensed, some are not.  Nonetheless, through our graduate degree, state certification, and/or state licensure, we have earned the right to be called Career and Employment Counselors.

A young man posted my opening question to my National Employment Counseling Association LinkedIn group. As I began my response, I realized how much more I needed to learn about the subject.  Here are some of the sources I considered: Jewish Vocational Service, Goodwill Staffing, Right Associates, and sometimes Drake Beam Morin, Booze Allen Hamilton, and Price Waterhouse Coopers.

And so my question is, do you know of any other corporations who hire career and/or employment counselors?  If you do, will you please share them here?   Leave a comment.  Thanks!!
