Student /education Counselor job doesn't come under HR all-though objective of the job relates to HR i:e "counselling" . when we talk about Counselor job is a good job and it come under sales and marketing as said it is for training institute ,This job will be a target oriented so first find out that .
If your int to pursue HR career then start something with recruitment because you will find so many opportunities for a recruiter position
