Roland Said:Masters in Student Affairs or Organizational Devp.and Human Resources?
We Answered:You will find more job opportunities with the human resources degree because in addition to colleges you can apply for work in other fields.
I worked in college administration for years and it is my opinion that some drastic cutbacks are in the works, so colleges and universities are unlikely to be doing as much hiring as in the recent past.
Roger Said:Student Affairs VS Community Counseling?
We Answered:I have my Masters in College Student Personnel, which is similar to a Master's in Student Affairs. Although my degree was counseling-based, in retrospect I wish I had gone a route that would have allowed me to pursue licensure later on. If you are positive that you want a career in higher education, then a counseling-based College Personnel degree would be the way to go, as you will have a greater focus on higher education theory and practice. However, if you want to remain open, then it sounds like the Community Counseling route is the way for you. Just try to have some exposure to college students (maybe by getting an assistantship in an academic advisement office or or doing your practicum in the college counseling department).

Warren Said:How can I start my career in student affairs?
We Answered:I thought I was reading about myself when I read this question. I majored in Telecommunication Arts and have been working in the cable industry for two years. I also want to do something helping people such as career counseling. I have applied for a lot of master's programs in student affairs or higher education and have been interviewing for the last few weeks. Most of the people in interviews say that you really need a masters to get into the field. It is a big risk for me to go into this without really knowing what it's like, but it seems to be the best option. Maybe you could shadow your old advisors with your vacation time and see if you like what they do. After observing people in this field the last few weeks, it really does seem like a rewarding field to go into.
