Our Insights

#RBCDisruptors

The entrepreneurs using artificial intelligence to shape the future of the Canadian economy say we have to start preparing for the consequences of machine learning now.

Advances in artificial intelligence mean computers can now use machine prediction to learn and make decisions on their own, opening the door to a new wave of automation and the threat of computers taking over jobs or at least augmenting human capabilities in ways we can t fully anticipate.

This isn t something that we want to look at five years from now, because it would be way too late, says Noel Webb, founder of Karen.AI, a recruitment startup.

Webb was among a group of AI entrepreneurs who spoke at RBC Disruptors, a monthly forum on technology and how it s changing the way we live and work.

He said advancements in AI could have such a broad impact that every company and government needs to have an AI policy.

We re at a really great fork in the road here, Webb said. The public education system came up back in the first industrial revolution. It s been hundreds of years since we ve had to take a look at what it means to have a future of work.

Webb is part of the first cohort of NextAI, a venture initiative supported by RBC to startups in the field. He was joined on stage by other NextAI entrepreneurs: Shea Balish, founder of fitness-focused REP.ai, and Nima Shahbazi and Krista Caldwell, co-founders of food logistics startup Deepnify.

All four noted the benefits and drawbacks of AI. For consumers, it offers the possibility of an entirely new range of personalized services including self-driving cars and automated personal assistants. For business, AI it offers the potential to improve operational efficiencies, predict consumer preferences and reduce human error.

Webb said AI can actually help humans by augmenting their skills.

His company s software reads every single resume submitted for a job he says companies receive 250 applications for every open position, on average and uses advanced algorithms to sort and filter them. It s far beyond keyword searching. He said Karen.AI s software can even predict personality fits.

The problem that we re solving is basically an administrative task, he said. The recruiter can really focus on what they want to do best: actually interacting with humans and imparting that judgment.

Balish, whose company uses AI to generate three-dimensional graphs from two-dimensional videos of athletes, said Rep.AI s services can save physiotherapists and doctors time during the diagnostic process. Caldwell said Deepnify, which uses advanced AI to optimize logistics and cut waste for fresh food in grocery stores, allows grocery managers to focus on more important work.

Yet AI could also prove destabilizing, accelerating the ongoing process of automation that has affected manufacturing jobs and even broadening it to new forms of work previously thought safe, such as the image recognition algorithms now analyzing X-rays or the natural language algorithms helping lawyers build legal cases.

There will be some job loss, but I think there will be new jobs created in the process, Balish said. It will create an immense amount of value within the economy, so the cost of a lot of things like your vegetables and your daily kind of needs is going to go way down.

Rep.AI s focus is athletics and the market for healthcare, and Balish said that improving health outcomes is one of the most promising areas of AI.

The policies that will be put in place and the foresight that s already being engaged by some of the top leaders in the world is on a positive trajectory, he said. But what I m most excited about is mitigating human suffering, increasing flourishing.

A new generation of AI research was kick-started in 2012 by a scientist working out of the University of Toronto, Geoff Hinton, and other Canadian researchers including University of Montreal s Yoshua Bengio and Richard Sutton made key contributions. Now, their work is the basis for voice assistants like Apple s Siri, the AI algorithms that beat world champions at games like poker and Go, and the self-driving cars already piloting around San Francisco streets.

Time Management: One-Year M.B.A.s

Cornell’s Johnson School of Management enrolled its largest one-year M.B.A. class this year, and has started a new program on the digital economy at Cornell Tech in New York City. Credit Heather Ainsworth for The New York Times

Streamline, accelerate, graduate. Educators have been scurrying to figure out how to cut short just about every field of professional study, be it law, medicine or business.

Graduate business programs were first truncated in Europe in the late 1950s, half a century after the two-year degree was introduced by Dartmouth. But one-year M.B.A.s are only starting to catch on in the United States with cost- and time-conscious students.

Donato Wilkins started a graduate program in May 2013 at Emory’s Goizueta Business School and is already headed toward a new job in mergers and acquisitions at PricewaterhouseCoopers. “I did the math, and the return on investment for the one-year program was much higher than for the two-year program,” said Mr. Wilkins, who had worked three years in corporate finance at Xerox and Newell Rubbermaid but wanted to get into a more exciting slice of finance. He considered both savings on tuition and the additional income from starting a job with an M.B.A. salary one year earlier.

He believes this: “You get the exact same benefit as the two-year program — the same professors, the community, the G.B.S. network, all the on-campus resources and Goizueta brand — in less time and for less money.”

Enrollments are up 26 percent for Goizueta’s program over last year. Cornell enrolled its largest one-year M.B.A. class on its Ithaca campus this year, and has opened a new program focused on the global digital economy at Cornell Tech in New York City. A long program was a concern when designing an M.B.A. for techies, said Douglas M. Stayman, associate dean for M.B.A. programs at Cornell’s Johnson School of Management. “The tech economy moves quickly, and if people are out of it for a long time, it’s an issue.” (The one-year M.B.A. runs about $93,000 versus $116,000 for the two-year.)

The Graduate Management Admission Council counts 189 one-year programs, compared to 173 four years ago, and 55 percent of them have reported increases in applications over last year.

Proponents say a year is sufficient for students with strong quantitative or analytical skills who are willing to clear their schedules to study. Typically, students start in May, and cram in almost a year’s worth of foundational business classes in four months. In September, they fall in with students who are in their second year of a traditional program, taking elective classes, joining industry-related and cultural clubs (essential for network-building), participating in case competitions and interviewing at companies. Students in the one- and two-year programs graduate as a class, with the same degree, the following May.

Some schools let students go even faster. The University of Florida’s Hough Graduate School of Business. for example, runs a 10-month M.B.A. for students who graduated with an undergraduate business degree within the previous seven years.

The pace of the one-year degree — essentially completing three-quarters of the academic credits of a two-year degree in half the time — can limit the appeal. “One-year is for people who are accelerating their careers, not changing their careers,” Mr. Stayman said. “You don’t have time to do career exploration.”

Employers interview during the fall, so students with five months of M.B.A. study under their belts are competing with students with 15 months, including an internship. One-year students need to have enough of a career history to make the case that they don’t need that internship.

The positive spin, said Alex Sevilla, assistant dean and director of Florida’s M.B.A. programs: “A student can say to a recruiter, ‘I voluntarily chose the one-year program, and that gives you some indication of my horsepower.’ ”

According to G.M.A.C.’s 2013 student poll, fewer job seekers from one-year programs (53 percent) had received offers by March than had students in the final year of two-year programs (61 percent). While one-year students reported an average 70 percent increase over pre-M.B.A. earnings, their earnings boost was 9 percent lower than what two-year students reported.

There are other drawbacks. Students don’t have time to spend a semester abroad. They forfeit some electives. They can join clubs but can’t lead them (presidents are picked the spring before they arrive). And elite business schools like Harvard, Wharton and Stanford don’t have one-year M.B.A.s. “We haven’t felt comfortable offering a one-year M.B.A. here,” said Madhav Rajan, who oversees Stanford’s full-time M.B.A. program. “I think there would be huge demand if we ever went that route, but given the content we want to disseminate, that’s not something we’ve pursued.

“You get to know your classmates and interact with your professors over two years,” Mr. Rajan said. “The whole notion of our M.B.A. is that it’s a transformative experience.”

Continuing Education Providers

Rule Review – TDLR is reviewing the Continuing Education Requirements located at Title 16, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 59 for re-adoption, revision, or repeal. Read the Notice of Intent to Review

Reduced Fees for Continuing Education Providers – On November 21, 2013, the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation approved a reduction in the application fees for Continuing Education Providers. The initial and renewal application fees were reduced from $250 to $200, a savings of 20%. The fee reductions are effective March 1, 2014 for initial applications and April 1, 2014 for renewals. The Commission also changed CE provider registrations so that they are no longer required to register for each occupation. One provider registration covers all TDLR programs. TDLR estimates these fee reductions and changes will result in a savings of $34,450 annually, with an estimated five-year savings of $172,250.

These savings result from the fee review we conduct each year, as part of our vision of Smaller, Smarter Government , said TDLR Executive Director William Kuntz. TDLR license fees must be reasonable and necessary only to cover the costs of administering its programs. With these fee reductions, our licensees and the public will receive the same high level of service but now at a lower cost.

At their November 21st meeting, the commission lowered fees for more than 400,000 TDLR licensees. TDLR estimates the total savings for all licensees will amount to nearly $6 million each year, with an estimated five-year savings of $29,661,245 .

I m proud that TDLR is leading the way to lower economic barriers for entry into the Texas workforce while helping businesses grow and keep more money in their pockets, said Commission Chairman Mike Arismendez. With these fee reductions, TDLR licensees will save real money now and for years to come.

TDLR continuing education providers use a web-based system enabling them to submit course completion documentation on the TDLR web site. Visit the Continuing Education Completion Reporting Site .

The roster system allows licensees to obtain credit almost immediately once a course has been completed. It also reduces data entry requirements for providers and allows for quick verification that the information provided to TDLR is accurate.

    Eye on Ethics

    Reflective Practice in Social Work — The Ethical Dimension
    By Frederic G. Reamer, PhD
    April 2013

    Recently, I received an urgent voicemail message from a hospital social worker: “Please get back to me as soon as possible. I have a meeting tomorrow morning with our head of human resources, and I’m very nervous about it.”

    Later in the day, I connected with the social worker and learned the following: He had been employed by the hospital for seven years and had never been disciplined. His current predicament began when his immediate supervisor called him in to discuss concerns about possible boundary violations and an alleged inappropriate dual relationship with a hospital patient. The social worker explained to me that in his personal life he is actively involved in a community-based group of parents who adopted children from China. The group sponsors a wide range of activities to support and enhance the children’s ethnic identity. Through this involvement, the social worker said, he and his wife had become very friendly with several other adoptive parents.

    About three weeks earlier, one of the parents who had become a good friend was admitted to the social worker’s hospital for treatment of a chronic, debilitating infection. The friend did not receive social work services. During the friend’s hospital stay, the social worker occasionally stopped by his room to say hello and inquire about the friend’s health. The patient’s attending physician had collaborated professionally with the social worker in other hospital cases and was well aware of the patient’s friendship with the social worker.

    One afternoon during the patient’s hospital stay, the physician contacted the social worker and explained that the patient was distraught after having just learned that he was diagnosed with bone cancer. According to the social worker, the physician asked the social worker to visit the patient and offer emotional support. The social worker visited the patient in his room and spent about an hour helping his friend process the distressing medical news.

    The social worker documented this patient encounter in the hospital chart. During a random quality-control review of social workers’ chart entries, the hospital’s social work supervisor read the note and became concerned because the social worker had not been assigned to provide social work services to this patient. The supervisor learned of the social worker and patient’s friendship and notified the director of human resources, who documented this “incident” in the social worker’s personnel record and asked to meet with the social worker.

    The Nature of Reflective Practice
    In 1983, the late scholar Donald Schon published his influential and groundbreaking book The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action . Schon’s thesis, based on his extensive empirical research, was that the most skilled and effective professionals have the ability to pay critical attention to the way they conduct their work at the same time that they do their work. Schon coined the terms “knowing-in-action” and “reflection-in-action,” which suggest that some professionals can take a step back and think hard about what they are doing while they are doing it. The concepts are akin to the widely used social work concept “use of self.”

    Ordinarily the concepts of knowing-in-action and reflection-in-action are applied to practitioners’ cultivation and use of technical skill, whether in surgery, architecture, town planning, engineering, dentistry, or psychotherapy. In my view, and as the above case demonstrates, social workers would do well to extend the application of these compelling concepts to their identification and management of ethical issues in the profession. Ideally, effective practitioners would have the ability to recognize and address ethical issues and challenges as they arise in the immediate context of their work, not later when someone else points them out. Put another way, social workers would have a refined “ethics radar” that increases their ability to detect and respond to ethical issues.

    Of course, the most important benefit is client protection. However, an important by-product is self-protection, that is, the increased likelihood that social workers will protect themselves from ethics-related complaints.

    Implementing Reflective Ethics Practice
    Certainly the hospital social worker who called me with panic in his voice would have benefited from reflective ethics practice and highly sensitive ethics radar. Had he reflected on the ethical dimensions of the boundary challenges that emerged when he interacted with his friend and hospital patient, it is likely that this well-meaning practitioner would have avoided his unpleasant encounter with the human resources department. The social worker’s decision to visit his friend was not the error; that was a humane and compassionate gesture. The error, rather, was not reflecting on his role in that moment and managing the boundaries carefully, including discussing them with his friend and his supervisor.

    In my experience, ethics-related reflection-in-action entails three key elements.

    Knowledge: Skillful management of many ethical dilemmas requires knowledge of core concepts and prevailing standards. Ethics concepts are addressed in professional literature and standards exist in several forms, including relevant codes of ethics, agency policies, statutes, and regulations. For example, the National Association of Social Workers’ Codeof Ethics includes explicit standards pertaining to boundaries, dual relationships, and conflicts of interest (especially section 1.06). It would have been best for the hospital-based social worker to consult relevant literature and standards with regard to conflicts that can arise when a social worker encounters a friend or social acquaintance in the work setting. The hospital’s personnel policies also prohibit dual relationships that involve conflicts of interest.

    In some cases, although not all, statutes and regulations address ethical issues. In the United States, both federal and state laws address various ethical issues, such as confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, and social workers’ ethical conduct. Such laws would not have been particularly helpful in the hospital social worker’s case, but often they are helpful and critically important, for example, when social workers must decide whether to disclose confidential information without clients’ consent to protect a third party from harm or whether parental consent is necessary to provide services to minors who seek help with substance abuse but insist that this information be withheld from their parents.

    Transparency: Reflective social workers who sense an ethical issue share their concern with supervisors, colleagues, and appropriate administrators. An effective way to protect clients and practitioners alike is to avoid any suggestion that the ethical issue is being handled “in the dark.” Such clarity demonstrates social workers’ good faith efforts to manage ethical dilemmas responsibly. When appropriate, clients should be included in the conversation.

    Process: Although some ethical decisions are clear-cut, many are not. The hospital social worker who contacted me was unsure about the best way to manage his involvement with a good friend who had become a patient. Unfortunately, the social worker did not notify his supervisor about the dilemma or seek consultation. He documented his lengthy hospital-room encounter with the patient, but doing so in the client’s hospital chart created the impression that the social worker was functioning in his professional capacity, not as a friend. My hunch is that had the social worker notified his supervisor of his friendship with the patient and made clear that any contact with the patient occurred as a friend, the social worker may have avoided any adverse personnel issues. What I have learned is that many ethical decisions are not simple events; they require a considerable, often painstaking, process.

    During the course of the profession’s history, social workers have refined the art of reflective practice. Historically, these skills have been applied primarily to clinical, policy, advocacy, and administrative functions. Clearly, reflective practice should extend to ethics as well.

    Careers in Travel and Tourism

    Careers in Travel and Tourism

    Globalization is not a buzzword solely associated with international business. It has translated into a booming new career possibility: expanded services in the travel and tourism industry.

    According to the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC), the industry already is responsible for more than 10 percent of global employment. Brian White, PhD, director of the WTTC’s Human Resources Center in British Columbia, says the field is incredibly diverse and comprised of seven major areas:

    • Airlines/transport.
    • Conferences and conventions.
    • Arts and culture.
    • Hotels, food and beverage.
    • Ecotourism.
    • Outdoor recreation.
    • Ancillary services associated with tourism.

    Industry Trends

    With all this opportunity, where should you concentrate your efforts? Focusing on market demands may lead to more job openings.

    On the corporate side, according to a piece on Hoover’s industry trends online. the travel and tourism industry is in consolidation mode. This means that smaller companies are merging or being acquired by big players like American Express, Marriott and Carlson Wagonlit. So it might make sense to begin your career with one of the larger corporations, where you can gain exposure to many facets of the business while having relative job security.

    An obvious trend is the increase in Internet service. The Web has created new and different career options for those interested in travel careers. Individuals can work for travel Web sites like CheapTickets.com, Orbitz and Travelocity.

    Additionally, journalists may see more travel writing opportunities available in traditional magazines like Cond Nast Traveler and National Geographic Traveler as well as online publications.

    Characteristics for Success

    This is a service industry, first and foremost, so you must have patience, flexibility and excellent interpersonal skills. Cultural sensitivity and awareness are critical, as tourism professionals deal with different countries and cultures.

    Senior-level executives generally have MBAs and develop skills and competencies that can be transferred across sectors. Midlevel professionals need a mix of practical experience and academic credentials, according to White, who also teaches in the field. For example, individuals might work full-time in the travel sector while going part-time for an advanced certificate in travel and tourism.

    Pros and Cons

    One obvious benefit of working in the travel and tourism industry is the opportunity to actually hop on a plane and see many locales at low prices, or even gratis. Another benefit is the fact that the field is international and changes along with global trends.

    One of the downsides to the business, especially the hotel and restaurant side, is the long hours. Management must often work evenings and weekends. Individuals are often asked to move to a new location without much notice.

    Ethics and Tourism

    White reminds us there is a strong set of ethics required in the field of tourism, noting the industry has profound economic implications for a country’s economy and people. It is important for individuals to consider their responsibilities, he adds. Tourism is about more than making a profit; it involves benefiting local communities, creating jobs that provide fair wages and not exploiting the environment.

    School Counselor Careers

    What Is School Counseling?

    A person’s school years are often very influential on the rest of his life. It is during these years that a child will grow into adolescence, then into his teenage years. During this time, a person will often further develop his personality, make and break friendships, and decide what he wants to do for the rest of his life.

    School, however, can also be a very stressful time in a person’s life. Students today have to worry about getting good test scores, completing copious amounts of homework on time, excelling in extracurricular activities, and getting along with their peers. Being pulled in so many directions and having this much on their plates can be very overwhelming for just about anyone, regardless of their age.

    Depending on his experiences, a person’s school years might be either the best years of his life, or the worst.

    School counseling, however, is a type of counseling that focuses on helping students make the best of their education. Professionals in this field are typically referred to as either school counselors or guidance counselors. They typically work with several different students over the course of a school year, and help them with a variety of different problems, from class scheduling to substance abuse.

    Today, school counselors are some of the most important and prominent members of a school’s faculty. They’re caring, compassionate, and genuinely concerned with the well being of the children they deal with. if you’re looking to make a difference in a child’s life and want to help him form his future, a school counseling career might be exactly what you’re looking for.

    How Do I Become a School Counselor?

    To become a school counselor you will need to go through a rather rigorous amount of schooling. This includes obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree. then a Master’s Degree. and finally entering into a Doctorate or PhD program. Visit our school counseling degree page to learn more about the educational pathway.

    Featured School Counselor Master’s Programs:

    Why Do We Need School Counselors?

    While in school, it can be very easy to feel lost, confused, alone, and overwhelmed. School counselors, though, exist to help students through the maze of academia.

    The main goal of a school counselor is to help mold today’s young minds into tomorrow’s productive members of society. These professionals work with students on a daily basis in order to help them make the right decisions, meet challenges, and move in the right direction. Without school counselors, a large number of students might slip through the cracks as they struggle with academics or make less than wise decisions.

    What Does a School Counselor Do?

    A school counselor has a number of different job duties and responsibilities; perhaps more responsibilities than any other member of a school faculty. On any given day, these professionals will usually work closely with students, teachers, parents, and school administrators.

    Students are typically a school counselor’s first priority. In general, these professionals are trained to keep the best interests of each and every student in mind.

    A school counselor will often start by evaluating a student’s skills, strengths, weaknesses,career goals, and interests. From there, the counselor can then help the student choose which classes to take. The counselor is also usually responsible for creating each student’s class schedule, which needs to include all of the necessary classes that are required for graduation.

    Career counseling is also another important responsibility of a school counselor. These professionals can help students who are unsure of their career goals choose some possible careers that are right for them. They can also help students take courses and participate in activities that will help them get into good colleges or career programs after graduation.

    Social, behavioral, mental, and emotional problems are also often addressed by school counselors as well. For instance, school counselors will often help students who are struggling academically; being bullied by peers; abuse drugs or alcohol; or experiencing abuse or other problems at home. School counselors might also help students who are dealing with issues such as low self-esteem and time management.

    School counselors will also usually stay in close contact with the parents of each student. Parents are usually informed of any problems that students may be having in school, for example. School counselors may also send parents periodic progress reports and give them advice on how to help their children succeed in school and in life.

    Teachers may enlist the help of school counselors at times as well. They may ask for help with a problem student, for instance, or work with a school counselor to help a student with a particular problem. School counselors may also be asked to help with ho to discipline students as well.

    The advice and concerns of a school counselors are also usually taken into consideration when school administrators are creating or reorganizing school policies.

    Where Do School Counselors Work?

    As their title suggests, school counselors work in educational institutes of all types. They are employed at both public and private schools, from the elementary levels to college levels.

    What Are the Education Requirements to Become a School Counselor?

    In general, most school counselors begin their careers with a bachelor’s degree in areas such as counseling, education, or psychology. When pursuing a school counseling career, you’ll most likely also be required to earn at least a master’s degree in school counseling or education psychology.

    Before becoming licensed, an aspiring school counselor will also usually need to complete a certain number of hours of supervised on the job training.

    What Is the Median Annual Salary of a School Counselor?

    According to the Bureau of labor Statistics, the median salary of all school and career counselors was $53,380 in 2011. Salaries vary by location and are often dictated by the budget of your school system.

    Overall Rating

    Featured Review

    Administrative Associate, El Paso, TX – July 11, 2014

    When I worked at Sun Travel, I was a full-time student in college. This company was willing to work with me to adjust my hours as needed.

    Typically, I worked within the ticketing department or at the front desk. I would assist within both of those areas as needed. Because of this particular job, I was able to learn and develop skills that I might not have otherwise had. I was able to learn and grow.

    Management was good and I was able to address any issues that I had with them. They were willing to help me find a way to be successful when I encountered a problem.

    My co-workers were very submitted to what they were doing. Agents were ready to fight for their clients and make sure they got the best service. Quality Assurance and ticketing did everything they could to make sure that clients got tickets as quickly as possible. It was like a big family that had their roles, but still looked after one another.

    I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn and grow. I am really fortunate that I had the chance to work with such great people in a great environment. It was a time I will never forget.

    Travel company personnel must be up-to-date on current rules and regulations and documentation required, in areas like cargo, ticketing and passports, visas etc. so as to correctly advise their clients, and to take care of the paperwork when necessary. Besides this, all tourism staff in marketing, counter sales, or guide services, should be knowledgeable about the places their clients visit, in terms of general background, how to get there connections by air, rail and road and the facilities available.

    Mental Health Counselor Careers

    What Is Mental Health Counseling?

    Life is full of frustration and difficult times. Most adults will usually have to deal with such things as balancing family and career life, and paying bills that they can’t afford. These stressful times can be very hard to get through and extremely overwhelming for some. Not coping with this type of stress in a healthy manner, however, can lead to mental and emotional strain.

    Mental health counseling can be used to pull some people out of their mental din. Professionals in this field offer counseling, support, and guidance to individuals that are having trouble coping mentally or emotionally.

    There are a number of mental problems that mental health counselors might encounter during their careers, from people dealing with everyday stress to those with diagnosable mental illnesses and disorders. For instance, they might counsel people that are having had times due to family, job, or social issues. They might also offer counseling to individuals experiencing:

    • Depression
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
    • Panic Disorder
    • Grief
    • Phobias
    • Eating Disorders
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
    • Addiction
    • Grief
    • Chronic Pain
    • Substance Abuse
    • Suicidal Impulses
    • Self-Esteem
    • Marital Distress

    Mental disorders are sometimes considered to be the most common disability in the United States. In fact, research conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health has shown that over a quarter of all adults suffers from a mental illness each year. More and more people are finally realizing the importance of not only their physical well being, but also their mental well being. Health insurance companies are even more apt to offer coverage for mental illness services as well. Because of this, there will not be a shortage of mental counseling jobs in the coming years, and mental health counseling is a rapidly growing field.

    Sponsored Mental Health Counseling Degree Programs

    How Do I Become a Mental Health Counselor?

    To become a mental health counselor you will need to go through a rather rigorous amount of schooling. This includes obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree. then a Master’s Degree. and finally entering into a Doctorate or PhD program. If you are serious about entering into this field of study, request information from programs available for you here .

    Why Do We Need Mental Health Counseling?

    Trying to cope with a mental disorder – or even extreme everyday stress – can be very difficult and overwhelming for most. These disorders are often very scary, confusing, and frustrating. Some people suffering from mental illnesses and disorders may even feel ashamed of their conditions.

    Mental health counselors, however, can help people learn to cope with their disorders and anything else life throws their way in a healthy manner. The guidance and skills that these professionals provide can often help people lead normal, happy lives.

    What Does a Mental Health Counselor Do?

    Mental health counselors typically work directly with clients, and sometimes their families as well. As mentioned above, professionals in this field might help with a variety of mental and emotional issues.

    Before counseling or treating their clients, mental health professionals will usually assess them first. This usually involves interviewing the clients and possibly having them fill out questionnaires. Depending on the severity of their conditions, mental health counselors may diagnose them with any number of mental illnesses.

    Traditional psychotherapy is often the preferred method of treatment for mental health counselors. This type of therapy usually consists of allowing the client to talk freely to the counselor with little interjections from him. Clients can talk about anything that concerns them, which allows them to explore their emotions and feelings. At times, the counselor may ask questions or offer comments.

    A mental health counselor might also help his clients with setting and achieving goals. They may offer encouragement and advice on how to reach certain goals. To keep clients from getting overwhelmed or frustrated, a counselor might also teach them stress reduction and relaxation techniques.

    Overall, mental health counseling is meant to be a short-term solution to help people get through rough patches in their life. Clients suffering from more severe and long-term mental illnesses will usually be referred to another mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist.

    Where Do Mental Health Counselors Work?

    Mental health counselors often work in all different types of health facilities, where individuals that need them will have easy access to their services. For instance, they might work in regular hospitals and psychiatric hospitals, along with mental health clinics, hospice care centers, and home health care centers. Mental health counselors might also work for schools, detention centers, adoption agencies, law enforcement agencies, and even branches of the military.

    Many mental health counselors, however, typically choose to open their own private practices.

    What Are the Education Requirements to Become a Mental Health Counselor?

    Counseling Educational Track

    A good education is imperative when starting a mental health counseling career. Future mental health counselors should have a deep knowledge of the mind, how it works, and the issues that can affect it. A knowledge of human development is also important.

    The majority of individuals looking to pursue a mental health counseling career will usually start with a bachelor’s degree in psychology or counseling. Taking courses in your preferred area of mental health counseling is particularly important during this time. For instance, if you want to pursue a mental health counseling career that focuses on treating substance abuse, you should take several courses in this area.

    Most states also require mental health counselors to have advanced degrees as well, such as master’s degrees in counseling. Experience in a clinical setting is also usually required before becoming a licensed mental health counselor.

    Your education usually won’t stop even after you’ve become a licensed mental health counselor, however. If you choose to pursue a mental health counseling career, it is important to participate in continuing education programs or workshops in order to keep abreast of any important developments in this field.

    What Is the Median Salary of Mental Health Counselors?

    The salaries of mental health counselors varies, depending on the are of specialization experience. Mental health counselors that have worked for the military for several years, for instance, will often earn much more than those starting out in entry level positions with non-profit groups.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for mental health counselors was $42,590 in 2011.

    Top Three Highest Paying Nursing Careers #careers #with #nursing #degree

    Highest Paying Nursing Careers

    Updated May 08, 2017

    Top Three (Non-management) Clinical Nursing Roles

    Over 2.5 million nurses are practicing nationwide, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), making nursing the largest workforce within the healthcare industry. There are so many different types and levels of nurses, it can be overwhelming to decide which nursing field to choose.

    If compensation and job security are at the top of your list of deciding factors, this list may help you narrow the field of options for you.

    Below are the top three nursing fields, based on annual salary, and industry demand. Because they are the highest paid, these nursing roles also require the most education and training as compared to some other types of nurses. This list also includes clinically practicing nurses and does not include roles which primarily consist of management or supervisory responsibilities.

    All of the below are advanced practice nurses, meaning they are highly specialized and educated at a graduate level. (The salary and other data, unless otherwise attributed, is based on my compilation of information I’ve acquired over the years working as a recruiter, and assisting hospitals with searches for these nursing roles.)

    Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA)

    With an average annual salary of $100,000 or more, CRNAs have one of the highest salaries in the nursing field. If you are already a licensed registered nurse (RN), you may be qualified to enter a graduate education program to become a CRNA.

    In Practice

    Get tips on how to better manage your health practice.

    CRNAs are part of the surgery team working with, or in place of, anesthesiologists, delivering anesthesia during surgical operations. In fact, CRNAs existed in medicine before anesthesiologists. Becoming a CRNA could be a great option for someone who has an interest in surgery or who has good technical skills.

    Providing anesthesia care is a more episodic type of care because you are working in a surgical setting. Therefore, if you are not as interested in continuity of care, or following a patient over time, this may be a career for you. Also keep in mind that your patients are out cold for most of the time you are treating them.

    Nurse Practitioner (NP)

    A nurse practitioner sometimes referred to as a mid-level provider, provides direct patient care at varying levels of independence, depending upon state laws. Some states require NPs to work under the supervision of a licensed physician, while other states allow NPs to practice relatively independently. NPs are qualified and authorized to do patient exams and some minor procedures and tests and can fulfill many of the same duties as a physician.

    State laws regarding nurse practitioners vary widely from state to state. In some states, NPs are legally required to practice under the supervision of a physician and must have a licensed physician to sign off on their work. However, in other states, NPs practice independently of physicians, providing primary care, or specialty care, and may prescribe medications as such. Becoming a nurse practitioner could be an excellent choice for someone who wants to earn as much as a CRNA, and would also like to experience some continuity of care, and build relationships and rapport with returning patients over time.

    Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS)

    A clinical nurse specialist is an advanced practice nurse who also assists with specialized research, education, advocacy, and sometimes management. In addition to being Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists also hold a Master’s of Science degree in Nursing (MSN) and they have completed the additional CNS certification for their respective area of expertise.

    Clinical Nurse Specialists are, as the name implies, trained and educated in a particular medical specialty. For example, a CNS of oncology would be highly trained in the treatment of cancer patients. A CNS of oncology may assist with clinical trials, and hold informational or educational meetings for cancer patients or other oncology nurses.

    Additionally, the CNS for oncology may assist in developing nursing protocols or quality improvement methods within the oncology department of a hospital.

    According to www.allnursingschools.com, there are over 15 areas in which a CNS may specialize including psychiatry, cardiology, infectious disease, geriatrics, and more.

    The average salary for CNS roles is around $70,000 – 80,000. It’s difficult to quote an average salary across all CNS roles since pay varies according to the subspecialty as well, but there are many positions paying up to $90,000 or more with experience.

    Travel and Tourism one of the world’s largest foreign exchange earner among industries, provides employment directly to millions of people worldwide and indirectly through many associated service industries. A very wide industry, it includes Government tourism departments, Immigration and customs services, travel agencies, airlines, tour operators, hotels etc and many associated service industries such as airline catering or laundry services, Guides, Interpreters, Tourism promotion and sales etc. Travel and Tourism enterprises include major internationals with a workforce of thousands, to the small private travel agent with a handful of employees.

    Work in the travel and tourism industry is essentially concerned with providing services for people who are away from home, on business or holiday. Travel can be leisure travel involving package tours, pilgrim travel, adventure travel etc or purely business. Work at every functional level in the industry involves dealing directly with people. Travel agents assess the needs of tourists and businessmen and help them make the best possible travel arrangements from the many travel options available. Also, many major cruise lines, resorts, and specialty travel groups use travel agents to promote travel packages to the millions of people who travel every year.

    Travel company personnel must be up-to-date on current rules and regulations and documentation required, in areas like cargo, ticketing and passports, visas etc. so as to correctly advise their clients, and to take care of the paperwork when necessary. Besides this, all tourism staff in marketing, counter sales, or guide services, should be knowledgeable about the places their clients visit, in terms of general background, how to get there connections by air, rail and road and the facilities available.

    In India, Travel and tourism, as an industry, has been somewhat slower to take off than in many other places. However, with increasing worldwide interest in travel, and with the Government’s encouragement of its activities, it is undergoing massive expansion and improvement. This forecasts a bright future for all those who choose to make a career of travel and tourism. Young people with drive and a capacity for hard work can rise to top positions very quickly in travel and tourism or even head their own agencies. A job in the industry gives good returns as well as perks including opportunity to see many locales at low prices.

    Careers in Travel and Tourism

    Careers in Travel and Tourism

    Globalization is not a buzzword solely associated with international business. It has translated into a booming new career possibility: expanded services in the travel and tourism industry.

    According to the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC), the industry already is responsible for more than 10 percent of global employment. Brian White, PhD, director of the WTTC’s Human Resources Center in British Columbia, says the field is incredibly diverse and comprised of seven major areas:

    • Airlines/transport.
    • Conferences and conventions.
    • Arts and culture.
    • Hotels, food and beverage.
    • Ecotourism.
    • Outdoor recreation.
    • Ancillary services associated with tourism.

    Industry Trends

    With all this opportunity, where should you concentrate your efforts? Focusing on market demands may lead to more job openings.

    On the corporate side, according to a piece on Hoover’s industry trends online. the travel and tourism industry is in consolidation mode. This means that smaller companies are merging or being acquired by big players like American Express, Marriott and Carlson Wagonlit. So it might make sense to begin your career with one of the larger corporations, where you can gain exposure to many facets of the business while having relative job security.

    An obvious trend is the increase in Internet service. The Web has created new and different career options for those interested in travel careers. Individuals can work for travel Web sites like CheapTickets.com, Orbitz and Travelocity.

    Additionally, journalists may see more travel writing opportunities available in traditional magazines like Cond Nast Traveler and National Geographic Traveler as well as online publications.

    Characteristics for Success

    This is a service industry, first and foremost, so you must have patience, flexibility and excellent interpersonal skills. Cultural sensitivity and awareness are critical, as tourism professionals deal with different countries and cultures.

    Senior-level executives generally have MBAs and develop skills and competencies that can be transferred across sectors. Midlevel professionals need a mix of practical experience and academic credentials, according to White, who also teaches in the field. For example, individuals might work full-time in the travel sector while going part-time for an advanced certificate in travel and tourism.

    Pros and Cons

    One obvious benefit of working in the travel and tourism industry is the opportunity to actually hop on a plane and see many locales at low prices, or even gratis. Another benefit is the fact that the field is international and changes along with global trends.

    One of the downsides to the business, especially the hotel and restaurant side, is the long hours. Management must often work evenings and weekends. Individuals are often asked to move to a new location without much notice.

    Ethics and Tourism

    White reminds us there is a strong set of ethics required in the field of tourism, noting the industry has profound economic implications for a country’s economy and people. It is important for individuals to consider their responsibilities, he adds. Tourism is about more than making a profit; it involves benefiting local communities, creating jobs that provide fair wages and not exploiting the environment.

    Overall Rating

    Featured Review

    Administrative Associate, El Paso, TX – July 11, 2014

    When I worked at Sun Travel, I was a full-time student in college. This company was willing to work with me to adjust my hours as needed.

    Typically, I worked within the ticketing department or at the front desk. I would assist within both of those areas as needed. Because of this particular job, I was able to learn and develop skills that I might not have otherwise had. I was able to learn and grow.

    Management was good and I was able to address any issues that I had with them. They were willing to help me find a way to be successful when I encountered a problem.

    My co-workers were very submitted to what they were doing. Agents were ready to fight for their clients and make sure they got the best service. Quality Assurance and ticketing did everything they could to make sure that clients got tickets as quickly as possible. It was like a big family that had their roles, but still looked after one another.

    I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn and grow. I am really fortunate that I had the chance to work with such great people in a great environment. It was a time I will never forget.
