In this episode of the Higher Education, Higher Purpose podcast, host Phil Cook speaks with Janet Pargeter, a retired guidance counselor with 22 years of experience. Janet shares her insights on the importance of networking and building relationships with other counselors to share knowledge and experiences, as well as to provide support and encouragement. She also discusses the benefits of being a NAACAP member, including access to the counselor certification program, fly and drive-ins, Christian college fairs, and the counselor boot camp. Janet offers advice to admissions representatives on building strong relationships with students and parents.

“Having relationships with other counselors and gleaning from them their knowledge and experiences in guidance counseling is what makes us good at our jobs. Not only is it invigorating but it breathes life and gives us value and worth, self-worth, it does all of that. But that's why I call it our superpower because I think it's what creates in us the ability to keep doing what we're doing.” - Janet Pargeter [02:55]
