Being a psychology major, what are good volunteer opportunities I should join to build my resume for grad school?
It is hard to find internships for counseling and psychology, but my career adviser said that volunteer work is just as important. #psychology
Linda Ann’s Answer
I would suggest volunteer opportunities with a local hospital - a pediatric hospital, specifically or a pediatric wing of a major hospital. Another suggestion : non profit organizations in your community, e.g., a homeless shelter or a food pantry.
There are many human service needs throughout our nation.
Coop, internship, shadowing, and volunteer programs should be viewed as opportunities to get exposure to the career field rather than a way to impress someone. One should evaluate them based upon the opportunity to see how the career area fits.
Best of luck! Please keep me informed. i would like to follow your progress!
