Can a career in I/O psychology help shift America's economy into socialism?

I was originally disinterested in I/O because the corporate world seems like a nightmare to me. When I realized research often shows noncapitalist work systems are better for workers' health, I began to wonder if its possible if I/O psych research and jobs can change America into a socialist country.

What careers do you think relate to my interests?

Hi everyone, I did some self-reflection to think about my career interests and what to study in college. I’m a high school senior looking to combine interests in public policy, law, and computer science for social impact. Areas of social impact I am interested in are income inequality, health care accessibility, and STEM inclusion for minority groups. I’ve developed an interest in policies impacting marginalized groups through AP Government, TV shows and movies involving legal cases, and reading about past cases. I think it’s important to have a career linked to technology because it will impact our future. I’m familiar with basic computer science but am also interested in non-coding tech-related roles with one example being product management. I enjoy math and computer science because it helps improve my logical thinking skills which I believe are important for preparing for a career in tech or law. To the extent possible, I’d like the type of work I do to be challenging, fast-paced, structured, and enable diverse experiences. I work best under pressure and think it would be fun to start my career in NYC. A separate interest is organizing and planning events that help others, whether fundraising for a charity or organizing mentors and resources to educate and mentor fellow students. I’m also passionate about lifestyle design, personal productivity, and understanding myself to plan for my future and learn about career options. This occurred when I was reaching out to the local community to find partners for internships and mentors for events and school clubs I was helping run where I was exposed to a variety of career types and advice. I’m neither extremely outgoing or an introvert. I’m more reserved around new people I meet but don’t mind forming new relationships if it can lead to a positive outcome for others or help me learn new perspectives. I’m still interested in understanding people and how to influence relationships, for instance I’m currently reading the book by Daniel Carnegie “How to Win Friends & Influence People.”

As a landscape architect, will it be possible for me to implement more landscapes and green into big cities? #landscape architecture

My dream as a landscape architect is to implement rooftop gardens, window boxes, and varieties of other things to make big cities greener. I want to know how possible it would be for me to do that after I graduate from the landscape architecture program, and if I can do that through a firm or if I should do that through my own firm, allowing for that to be our mission. #landscape-architecture #architecture #social-entrepreneurship #social-impact #career-specific

What are some other options that are similar similar to this? #psychology #social-worker #child-psychology #social-impact
