The Big Screen on Campus [Infographic]

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

College campuses are developing quickly with the help of digital signs pushing them forward into the future. No longer are digital boards confined to the classroom as smartboards; they are being implemented and used all over campuses everywhere.

From community and campus information boards, schedules, advertising and menus, digital signage is the new look for college campuses. Events won’t be overlooked and “math tutor needed” pages won’t be lost under the cork board of advertisements. Now, everything is easily organized into sections, and nothing gets forgotten.

Most college campuses keep safety as a number one priority and offer alerts for anything that may be dangerous to students.And because these boards can be updated instantly, there is no wait time to get messages through. Affixed all over campuses, the word can get out quickly and efficiently, whether it be serious weather, security concerns, or fire, students will always be in the know.

Counseling Careers: Which Path Is Best For You? [Infographic]

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Getting a job in this economy can be a challenging task.  Even though some jobs are in high demand, they typically require you to have a greater skill level and to have obtained a Masters degree at minimum.  This isn’t true for all jobs of course, but studies show that there is a direct correlation between education level and income.  So what does this correlation mean for those interested in pursuing counseling? Research shows that school and career counselors require a masters degree to practice and make on average $53,380 annually, while substance & behavioral disorder counselors only require a high school diploma and make $38,120.  That’s over fifteen thousand dollars a year difference!

Differences in counseling professions continue even further than skill level and income. There are many different fields of specialty to choose from due to an increase of interest in traditional counseling and other counseling-style programs.  From Freudian psychotherapy to group talk-therapy sessions, people are interested in getting help and counselors want to give it.   But, as a future counselor, which path are you going to take?

This infographic from Best Masters In Counseling shows the various counseling possibilities and helps to guide you (much like a good counselor) to make the best decision. Check it out!
