"Working as a mental health counselor requires patience, compassion, and advanced communication skills. In an interview, expect to answer several scenario questions that will test your ability to evaluate patients accurately as well as recognize when a patient is at risk to himself or others. Make sure to showcase a calm and professional demeanor and be ready to answer questions about how you would handle a particularly stressful case. Before applying, make sure you've obtained a master's degree in counseling from an accredited institution."
