  3. Crisis Hotline Operator: Many crisis hotlines seek individuals who have basic training in counselling and psychology. You could work as a crisis hotline operator, providing immediate emotional support and referrals to callers in distress. Training for crisis hotline work is typically provided by the organisation.
