PoP Culture Meet Thomas J. Olsen

What can grad students do for their career with Thomas J. OlsenAfter spending the earlier part of my career working for a small business wearing a lot of different hats, I decided to make a career change to counseling. I loved working for a small business and always dreamed of having my own one day, but I never felt like I was in the right industry. I always had a passion for people and helping to rebuild relationships and overcome great emotional struggles. After finishing my bachelors degree in communication and business I worked doing sales training and HR. While I enjoyed my job I never felt like it was the right fit. So after a lot praying, research, and some self-discovery, I realized that I needed to go back to school to become a counselor. I am now currently enrolled in a Professional Counseling masters program and I’m so excited for this new career path. I want to eventually open my own practice and combine my passions for small business and counseling together. I want to focus on distant marriages, sexual addictions, trauma, and career coaching. You can read more about me and my thoughts on counseling at fallingwithpurposeblog.wordpress.com.
