From the Paper:

"As in any profession, there are various types of career counsellors depending upon the environment and the field of specialty. Not all career counselling services are the same. There are varying levels of career counselling that including career counsellor fellows, master career counsellors, registered professional career counsellors and master career development professionals. (Copper, 2007) Despite the differences, career counsellors are people-persons and must know how to relate with people especially at critical times when they seek help regarding employment options. Career counsellors should be able to have one of the hardest attributes there is0 to have - to be able to care without being attached. This would mean setting aside personal prejudices, biases and stereotypes in order to deal with a variety of people and their problems.
"The career counsellor's job is not easy but I myself have chosen that path because I firmly believed I can be good at it and I have the right people skills to get the job done. Since a career counsellor "counsels" on what job a person can go for, I already have the advantage after having worked at various occupations such as a waitress, cook, stewardess, front desk clerk and manicurist."
