So I like management and psychology...

But I dont know what kind of jobs I can take. I know its early, but I want to make a clear path to find my way. Any advice?

Psychology and management are both very applicable to all sorts of future career paths. It’s not important for you to know exactly what you want to pursue right now, in fact in some ways it’s better that you don’t! Along the way you will find and learn things that stoke an interest that may lead to a passion. Take those emerging interests as nuggets on your path to finding what you love. All of the most successful people of industry I’ve talked to will echo this one sentiment: “I didn’t choose my career path, it chose me.” You’ll find one that chooses you as well. Sean Firouzian

Hi Valencia,

I second on Dana Jordan's point here that "Psychology transcends into all areas of business." From your background of psychology and management, I think your skill sets can apply to many area. As you are studying in clinical research, I would suggest you look for any Program/Project Management position which can leverage both of your soft (psychology) and hard skills (healthcare, management) to interact with different people to get things done.

Hope that helps!

Its good that you like these disciplines. Go for Human Resource Management. If not then apply for field missions in development sector (non profit sector) where one has to deal with human behaviour and solve their issues through welfare projects and reliefs.

Hi Valencia,


I majored in Business and Psychology so I definitely understand what it's like trying to determine what field to work in whist you have multiple interests. I currently work for PwC in their HR Shared Services Center but I used to work in research. For me I found that I enjoy the subject of psychology but I do not enjoy working in the field (ie. therapy, research etc).  I enjoy applying strategy, problem solving and management in the workplace hence why I chose to work in business. I will say psychology transcends into all areas of business. The ability to work on a team, motivate others, interact with different personalities, these are all very important skills that are related to psychology.


My advice to you would be to think about the work applied for each industry to help you determine what career path to choose.


Best of luck!

Dana
