Careers in Organizational Psychology

Monday, November 08, 2010
A Virtual Alumni Panel

2:30-3:30 p.m. (Pacific)

In the current economic climate, many undergraduates are wondering about the costs and benefits of investing in a graduate program in Psychology. Many know that they want to use I/O Psychology or Organizational Behavior as a way to help both individuals and organizations, but might not know what careers paths are open to them or what challenges lay along the way.

Three recent alumni from Claremont Graduate University have volunteered to chat online with undergrads across the country for a one-hour panel discussion on November 8. Join us and learn more about how leaders, scholars, and educators use psychological and organizational theory and research to improve organizational effectiveness and the work life of all individuals.

This interactive, Q&A style discussion panel will include three psychologists, working in industry as internal organizational development officers or as independant consultants.

To be discussed:

  • The typical day of an organizational psychologist
  • Work in the field vs. academia: how do you choose?
  • First-hand experience as a new Ph.D. graduate in an economic recession
  • How to be the best grad school applicant possible
  • Other questions from the online audience

This event, which is geared towards undergraduate considering a career in applied organizational psychology, is open to the public. Please share this invitation with your students and colleagues—the more the merrier!

No RSVP is required to attend, but we highly recommend testing your computer with the online classroom link in advance. Some university computers may have firewalls that cause complications when logging in. Feel free to call (909) 607-9016 for assistance, M-F 9-5 Pacific.
