How is the job outlook for vocational rehabilitation counselors?

I'm considering a Master's program in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling, but was wondering how the job outlook is. Specifically, I'd like to live in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and was curious if there are many openings in this region, or if I'd have to relocate. If you're in the field of vocational rehabilitation counseling, did your internship turn into a permanent position, or did you have to spend months and months applying for jobs?

Here is a link to the Labor Department's occupational outlook site. It looks like the need is growing, but no way to know how it will be in your area. Here's a link to the Council on Rehabilitation Education, it will provide you with links to other relevant professional organizations. You might also want to check federal, state, county, and municipal job postings and get in touch with people in your area who do this kind of work.

When you enroll in grad school schedule a session with a reference librarian who can teach you some research skills.

If you're interested in working for the state, here's a link to the current number of vacant vocational rehabilitation counselor positions with the PA Department of Labor and Industry.
