I'm curious what people's sense is for whether positions that advertise as "counseling" will consider people w/ a clinical degree, or vice versa. I imagine it depends somewhat on the school and sometimes you can tell that they really want one or the other from the job description, but this doesn't always seem to be the case. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts here?

I'm in an uncommon psych dept in that we have both a clinical and counseling area in our dept (at most universities clinical is in psych and counseling is in education or something else). At least in my dept, the two areas only seem to be interested in hiring people with the corresponding degree.
In my experience it depends on the type of program. If it is undergrad or masters level program generally there professors with clinical and counseling doctorates. However, doctoral programs seem to be one or the other. There are always exceptions, especially if your area fits well with the department needs.
