Hi Dayonna!
Psychologists can work in many different fields and types of organizations or independently as well if they have their own clinical practice. In fact, I believe that's one of the advantages of majoring in Psychology, you get to apply what you learn to your own life and to a myriad of environments. For example, you can work at a school and become a counselor, or you can work in Organizational Psychology (Human Resources, Learning & Development). You don't have to decide that now. After you take some classes, you'll know more and will be able to figure out what you'd like to do. Finding an internship to explore some of these areas would be great. Alsovisiting APA's (American Psychological Association) website and reading some of the articles they publish. I hope that helps!
Thank you comment icon Thank you for taking the time out of your day to answer my question it really helped. Dayonna

Hi Dayonna,
I majored in Psychology and started my career working with juvenile detention centers and social services. It is an important field of work and there is currently a critical shortage of psychologists and psychiatrists compared to the needs of individuals and families today. This line of work can be both rewarding and exhausting, but you get the benefit of knowing that you help someone every single day. I took my background and went in a career direction of helping people with employee benefits. I'm still counseling in a way and helping people understand human behavior and why we make every day decisions that can either help or hurt us. Best of luck to you!
