you're sitting there like "ok, what does that mean?"
let me tell you:
in short, it means that once i submit my official transcript and an endorsement form, i can put NCC (National Certified Counselor) behind my name. this makes me more attractive to potential employers and is one of the qualifiers for getting licensed. basically, it says that i took a test that proves i didnt spend my entire graduate career bullshitting and i know what im talking about for the most part.
the next steps are:
- accruing 3,500 supervised, paid work experience
- applying for licensure once those hours are obtained
- being approved and FINALLY using my degree on my own, if i want to
- probably no longer doing this blog/doing this blog A LOT differently (this may occur some time before i actually get my license)
