Event Description

Please join us on Thursday, December 7th for a professional development panel on alternative careers outside of academia for folks with a PhD in psychology. Our panel includes three speakers currently working at non-profit organizations. In their past and current positions, our speakers guide these organizations and those that they collaborate with on applying and testing psychological insights to real-world problems.

Amongst other things, we will be hearing from our three panelists about their current roles; examples of how they apply psychological insights in their current work; why psychology PhD students might be a good fit for their organizations and this type of work; what specific skills they look for in prospective employees, etc.
