Careers in Psychology.
Kasschau, Richard A.; Johnson, Margaret M.
This publication is intended to help make secondary and college students aware of careers in psychology. Approximately one-half of the booklet contains sketches of 16 jobs in psychology emphasizing teaching, research, and public service. For each job sketch there is a general description of the types of work involved and the educational background required. To help students understand what a career in this area involves, examples of an open position advertisement and a description of a successful applicant are provided. The publication also contains information on the college degrees and employment statistics of psychologists, describes steps to take if one is interested in becoming a psychologist, discusses the difference that education and training make, and talks about the direction in which psychology is headed. A variety of other information sources is included for persons seeking information about a career in psychology. (Author/RM)
