Often times, those graduating with an undergraduate degree in psychology find themselves feeling limited in their next step following degree completion; they feel they must jump immediately into a graduate program or that they possess a degree that does not provide opportunity for job placement without further training or academia. While most will go off to a graduate program, which is highly encouraged at some point, there are other fulfilling measures that can be taken before then to make you a well- rounded and advantageous candidate for graduate studies. This talk will highlight job opportunities and CV building experiences that are available and beneficial to those possessing a bachelor’s degree in psychology following graduation.
