Innovative strategies for psychology majors to survive and thrive in the workforce

Nearly 100,000 students graduate each year with a bachelor′s degree in psychology, and a majority of these students will enter the workforce instead of pursuing a graduate degree. Many will find themselves tentatively deciding their next steps amid a complex and changing economic and job environment.

In this text, authors and professors Paul I. Hettich and R. Eric Landrum provide innovative strategies and tools for succeeding after college with an undergraduate degree in psychology. Drawing on current research data, applied theory, and both academic and workplace experiences, they help stimulate self-reflection and improve decision making as students approach their careers. The text covers key topics in the college-to-career transition, including career planning and development, identifying and transferring marketable skills, building and sustaining strong networks, understanding what employers want and don′t want, coping with personal life changes, becoming a valued employee, and more.
