How is the job outlook for a Psychology degree?

There are a broad number of careers that apply to Psychology, but the economy is in tough times and I was wondering if this might affect any jobs that relate to Psychology. #psychology #jobs #employment #economy #the-future

Hi Calvin!

Congratulations on being interested in such an important field! The future looks great!

There are many different types of opportunities in the areas of counseling and psychotherapy in Canada. The first thing that you want to do is determine specifically what you really want to do within the field .Looking for the right career is like shopping for a pair of shoes. Fit and comfort and a good feeling about them is very important.

The organizations mentioned below would be good ones to get to know, as they appear to have members from many different areas of the field. It would be helpful to go to meetings as a guest and talk to various people to learn about the area which fits and feels the best for you. The reference librarian at you local library could help you find local chapters and their contact information.
