Janet’s Answer

You can work in human resources, community centers, as a child care provider (nannies are paid well!), a family manager (for the wealthy). With a master's degree in school psychology, you can work as a school psychologist. Many school districts pay toward courses toward a doctorate, or other certification to become a school administor.

Noah’s Answer

Psychiatrist - Medical Degree
Psychologist PhD or PsyD
Counselor/Therapist - Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (this is what i'm going for)
Social Worker - Masters in Social Work
HR - No degree required but a B.S. in Psych can be helpful, especially if combined with knowledge or experience in business/finance
Industrial Organizational Psychologist/Consultant - Very flexible, pay increases with the kind of degree: Bachelor's, Masters's, Phd
Sales - Usually a bachelor's

Sydney’s Answer

Some psychologists specialize in assessment- so they work to diagnosis things like ADHD, ASD, etc.

There is also a field called industrial organizational psychology (IO Psych) that primarily works with corporations and business to improve efficiency and conduct employee related research (job satisfaction, hiring needs, etc)

Within therapy as well there are many options- you can work in private practice, community mental health, a hospital, a school, or a corporate setting counseling employees.

Alternatively many HR jobs hire people who have studied psychology.

Hope this helps!

Brad’s Answer

Hi Sally! Great question. I was a Psych major and a business minor and I was fortunate to get an amazing internship in Human Resources before I graduated. I ended up staying with this company throughout my senior year and I started recruiting right out of college. I later spent a few years as an HR Business Partner where my degree helped me maneuver through many Employee Relations issues that my clients needed help with. Psych is the perfect business pathway to a career in Human Resources. Good luck!
