Psychology Related Jobs for bachelor Graduate :)

Hello!
I am soon going to be a graduate of a bachelor of psychology in New Zealand, and I was wondering for suggestions into jobs in this field.

I am considering early childhood education and or the police force... so things that are people based (i love kids, but would be happy with any people based job!) focused around wellbeing and or health and wellbeing!

What ideas do people have? I'm super extroverted and care alot about life improvement and looking to get some ideas!

Thank you comment icon Well am happy for you we can never have enough educators my personal opinion was of course without them we wouldn't know a thing doctors, lawyers, nurses etc. Andre Harris andrespotlessclean

Genevieve’s Answer

Hi Callan, what a great question! I applaud your interest in psychology and your drive to choose a career where you can help others. Allow me to recommend an exploration into the field of Human-Centered Design. We use insights from psychology, sociology, anthropology, and more to design systems that are useful and usable for the people who use them. With an undergraduate degree in psychology, you would be welcome to apply to lots of human-centered design programs (sometimes called "Human-Computer Interaction" programs), perhaps to pursue a career as a designer and developer of new products & services, or as a developer of education technology, or lots of other roles that proliferate in this area . I should add that this can be super-fun for your extroverted side because a huge part of the job is working with people to understand what they need from their products/services, and collaborating with folks in lots of different disciplines to build those products/services.

Genevieve recommends the following next steps:

The Human-Computer Interaction team at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA) offers a variety of different masters programs related to these interests: https://www.hcii.cmu.edu/academics/masters-programs
And here's a resource with more info about these careers and which schools might have the most interesting related programs - https://www.mastersprogramsguide.com/rankings/human-computer-interaction-masters/
If you are staying in New Zealand, you could check out this program closer to home - https://www.auckland.ac.nz/en/science/about-the-faculty/school-of-computer-science/computer-science-research/human-computer-interaction.html
Thank you comment icon Wow thanks so much for this response! So helpful to have the links there too! Cheers for this Genevieve Callan

Amber’s Answer

Hi Callan, with a degree in Psychology, you can enter User Experience (UX) Design or User Research. If you have an interest in design, you can contribute to the designs of apps, websites, products by understanding how humans interact with products. With your interest in childhood education, health and wellness, and speaking to people, you may enjoy User Research more since you get to speak to many people and talk to them in interviews and usability studies. User researchers ask product users how they might interact with a product, what some pain points are when using a product, and ask how it can be improved. Using the information they dig out of people, they can then analyze that data , report it, and/or come up with recommendations or suggestions to how to improve the product. UX designers and user researchers are needed for any industry so you should be able to find a company that you'd be interested in!
