Just like almost every aspect of our lives has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenges faced by school counselors too have undergone some changes.

While some say they lack clear direction from the district and school leadership, others say not finding enough time to either get hold of their students virtually or working directly with them on social-emotional issues is a big challenge.

School counselors handle a wide variety of tasks that are designed to help students, teachers, parents, and school administrators.

Students often face trouble deciding which career goals they should focus upon or the career pathways that can help them achieve such goals.

Though COVID-19 is still showing no signs of bidding our lives adieu, it doesn’t mean your students should stall their college search and career planning.
