Will it be hard to find jobs in psychology related careers in the future?

I'm considering a career in psychology, but it seems that everyone else is, too. Will it be hard to find jobs with the amount of students currently going into college for psychology? #psychology #jobs

Hi Madison,

With everything going on in the world today, I believe there is a great need for psychology majors today. You may want to consider obtaining your masters degree to keep your career options open. What is important is that you follow your heart and you will be successful in your career. You may consider being a guidance counselor if you like working with children.

Hello Madison!!
My advice to you goes straight from my heart: if your passionate about psychology, go for it!! Yes, there are a lot of people that want to be a psychologist - but very feel of them are good at this.
If the competition is high, you need to keep in mind that you´ll have to be very dedicated to your study and your career. I can tell you that I´ve met several psychologists, but just one of them is excellent at what she does. She not only has the gift for it, but she never stops studying or researching on her field.
Don´t be intimidated by the competition - trust in yourself.
I wish you all the best! :)

Ashley’s Answer

While many people are interested in psychology, the field is also projected to grow at an above average rate according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' website. This is important because it means that there will still be a major need for mental health professionals (assuming that is the area of psychology you are interested in) in the future. The best way to ensure job security will be to gain valuable internship and work experience, as well as complete the education necessary to be successful in the job you would like (usually at least a master's, though there are some jobs out there outside of therapy, such as case management or peer counseling, that only require a bachelor's degree).

Hello!

If you are truly considering a field in psychology, go for it! Psychology majors have a lot of areas of interest that you may be suited for, whether you’re looking to get into a B.S (more science, research, and math oriented) or a B.A (more social work, case management, Human resources oriented). And from the previous answer by Ashley, the field of psychology is looking to go up in terms of career wise, as there may be a need for more professionals in the mental health field.
