Preparing for Your Career with a Psychology Degree.
Shapiro, Ronald G.; Shapiro, Raquel
Career options for baccalaureate level psychology graduates are not readily known. Deciding whether to pursue a university career or one in industry is often a difficult decision for graduates since they usually have limited industrial experience. This paper describes how graduates can maximize the value of their psychology degree. It explains what working in industry would be like for a graduate, what skills they would utilize, and which factors would lead to their success in industry. Practical recommendations are listed for working in both educational settings and in industry. Tips on writing a resume and preparing for an interview are also included. (JDM)
