Graduate Counseling Internships: A Primer on Experience, Clinical Setting, and Priorities

A recent email from a would-be-graduate counseling intern:

“I am currently completing my counseling graduate coursework at a university in pursuit of licensure. I have been searching for an internship position beginning in the Fall 2013. I have been looking for 6 months now. I interviewed, but did not get an internship from an agency who had only 14 applicants for 10 open positions. Their response to me was that they thought I could obtain something elsewhere due to my extensive background (I already have an M.A. in Human Services and Education) and others could not. I wish they’d tell me the real reason as I thought the interview went very well. I am frustrated, so I was avidly searching for other places to apply and found your site… Since I have plenty of experience, I am baffled as to why I cannot find an internship.”
