I left HS counseling for advising in higher education due to a toxic work environment at my former school. How do you all do it?! It’s hard work! I respect you all so much!

I am considering this kind of move (to higher education) for the same reason. Any tips/things to think about ahead of time?


I did the opposite and I miss higher education!

My school is a great place. Like a big happy family. I would like to re explore hgher education opportunities but I will miss this invigorating environment

I am leaving higher education to go back to high school. At least in a top rated university, the pressure is too high for the students and burnout for staff is real. I was in my position for 5 years and everyone rotated out after a year or less.

I recommend community colleges - for students and staff.

Anyone have tips for making friends when things open up?
