Q:
What advice would you give someone seeking a career as a credit counselor?

What best advice would you give me for a career as a credit counselor. Is there a school? a degree? a certification? Would it make sense to be a loan officer first? It seems like a rewarding career and hoping you can lead me in the right direction. Thanks! -Charles
