Is there any difference between a university and a college?

I never knew the answer to this question. However, if there is a difference, I think a university would just mean having a bigger population and a college would be smaller? In other words, a university will obviously have more students and a college will have less. This is just something that...

Are there any jobs that will hire a college student fresh out of school without any experience?

Currently, I have been searching on websites like indeed.com for applying to jobs/careers. I read through everything and then when I get to the requirements area I am told that I need this many years of experience. I understand that experience is vital, very important to have but will I ever...

Is there a program where you can obtain your M.A in psychology in only one year?

I have heard from a few people that there is now a program where you can obtain your Masters in Psychology in just two semesters. However, I am unsure whether this option exists. I have currently been going to school for a while now, far too long than expected. It would be absolutely amazing to...

Am I suppose to know what I want to do as soon as I graduate college?

There are many things that I desire and it is so tough for me to pick that very special one! Psychology has so much to offer and I am just lost in the middle. The options upon options never end. I feel as if I should definitely know what it is that I want to do once I graduate. I mean, I...

What are some good websites, some specifics in searching for careers within your field of study?

A few friends have informed me that before I graduate to start applying for jobs. Few have told me to use websites such as indeed.com , linkedin.com , etc. I have been using indeed often but pretty much all requirements for the jobs I am interested in want experience of a few some odd years....

What is the proper way to dress for an interview?

I have had quite a few interviews in the past where I always wore a nice polo collard shirt, dress pants, and dress shoes. It was never anything different. However, now that I am graduating and taking on a "real professional" interview I guess we should say, do I need to change up my attire? Do...

I live in Bayville, New Jersey. I heard that jobs down here will pay less money than jobs further north near the Hoboken, Jersey City, NYC areas. Is this fairly true?

It really makes me wonder how this can be. I mean, its got to be common sense because further north means more people and more business. Personally, I would not want to change locations for work just for better income. People always tell me to go north because that is where the money is. I get...

Are you allowed to put any of your professors down as references for applying to job?

I have never actually asked any of my professors this question. To me it sure seems like a very good idea because they are the ones who see how dedicated you are, motivated, and willing you are to work. Not to mention all the effort and devotion you put into your grades. I hope that this can...

Is graduate school a lot harder than regular college?

I have heard from a numerous amount of people that graduate school is not harder than your regular college and/or university. Some people have told me that all it is is a lot more work and that it dives into specific content, which to my expectations does make sense because it is based strictly...

What is the difference between getting a certification and obtaining an M.A?

This question has always seemed to bother me. Maybe it's just because I don't even know what a certification is. But overall, I would like to know the difference between the both and is one better to have than the other? Also, How many years of schooling does going for a certification require?...

Will graduating with a very well GPA compared to graduating with an average GPA matter for getting a job?

Every semester I do and try my hardest to be the best that I can be. My GPA has never been lower than a 3.2, and I know that this really isn't even that good of a GPA but it is better than most, so I hear. What I would like to know is that will graduating with a high GPA necessarily make my...

Will choosing a more populated and highly recognized school over one that is less unheard of matter for careers?

I was always so skeptic about where I wanted to go to school throughout high school. I didn't know whether to apply to a D1 school or a D3 school. Therefore, I made the decision to apply to both. Fortunately, I did get accepted to every school I applied to but just couldn't make up my mind as...

What is the best way to improve your public speaking skills?

Public speaking is basically my biggest fear in the entire world. I pretty much try dodging every obstacle possible when it comes to this topic. This is a strong phobia of mine that just eats away at me. If I were to practice speaking when I know I have a presentation or something big coming up...

Does every Psychology major necessarily need graduate school?

Is it better or more valued to receive a degree with a minor or concentration?

I will be receiving my degree in Psychology with no minor nor concentration. I am wondering if I made a wise decision by doing so? I have noticed that a majority of my friends have graduated with either a minor or concentration and I never really understood what that meant. Could it just be...
