2022 Counseling Foundations

About the Virtual Career Fair

The NBCC Foundation is hosting  Counseling Foundations: Your Path to Career Success, a virtual career fair that aims to connect employers, recent graduates from master’s and doctoral counseling programs, and seasoned counseling professionals nationwide in a virtual setting to explore current and future staffing opportunities. Through its affiliation with the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), the Foundation is connected to over 67,000 counselors, practitioners, and counseling students and will utilize this career fair to introduce those talented individuals to employers seeking to expand their organizations’ talent pipelines.

True to the Foundation’s mission of providing equitable and accessible mental health services to those in need and NBCC’s mission of advancing the profession of counseling, this event is especially devoted to providing hiring and marketing opportunities for counselors and employers committed to serving traditionally underserved and never-served communities. Among the highly qualified and enthusiastic job seekers attending the career fair will be many former and current members of the NBCC Foundation’s Minority Fellowship Program—counseling professionals who have engaged in education and professional development specifically designed to prepare them to work with the communities most in need of mental health services.

Counseling Foundations: Your Path to Career Success offers a unique and affordable way for job seekers and employers from diverse cultural backgrounds and geographical locations to connect and create partnerships intended to increase access and promote mental health equity across the United States.


If you are a current counseling professional or student, you'll have the opportunity to connect directly with employers from the comfort of your home or office.
