This paper explores what art therapists can learn from career counseling and how to apply and adapt these strategies with recent art therapy graduates who are looking for a job postgraduation. Art therapists are a distinct group of career-counseling consumers because they face unique challenges in the job market, including changing health care delivery systems and lack of recognition of the profession as equivalent to other master's-level practitioners. Those who advise potential job seekers should be aware of career counseling resources and strategies available to assist students and professionals and to optimize successful job searches. To help advisors and job seekers, a series of career counseling resources adapted for the field of art therapy are included, consisting of the following: a resum? checklist and sample, cover letter checklist and sample, networking how to suggestion guide, interview preparation hints, related online resources, and developing an art therapy portfolio.
