In the first episode of this new podcast from The Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC), Dr. Susan Sherman speaks with CRCC Executive Director Pam Shlemon about her career in rehabilitation counseling. Dr. Sherman's insights stem from all chapters of her professional life, including time running a State VR Agency, running a rehabilitation counseling program at East Carolina University, and her time as President of the CRCC Board of Directors.
What would you say to a new CRC or a professional considering coming in or a student coming in, thinking about coming into this profession?
Dr. Susan Sherman:
There are a lot of different options in our field. Yeah. We can do anything we want to do that we're interested in and we're trained in. Okay. And so my advice would be to get to know people in the field, become active in the field. You know, it's exciting to look back on my career and on the lives that I touched and how many lives those people are going to touch. Whether it's my staff who are counselors, my supervisors who supervise them, or as a professor, an educator and director of a program, it's been really an amazing career, and I would say to them you can have that too.
