Anyone here get a job with a Psych degree?
    #3097167 - 09/06/04 01:29 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Yes, I did post about hating engineering a while ago, and maybe I'm thinking about changing majors, and MAYBE I'm thinking about Psychology. I find it interesting.

Does anyone have a Psych degree here? Do you have a job, lol? Do you have a BS? MS? Ph.D?

What do you do?

Where did you get it?

Are you having a good time with it?

Humor me.

Sure is. But I'm afraid of majoring in it if I'm just going to end up living with my parents and working at Red Lobster :smile:

But if I like it..I should go for it I guess.

I wanted to go into the health profession a while ago and always looked at their job opennings, and I did see some openings for psych majors. They were some assistant jobs that required a 4 year degree and they didn't specify how much they made which usually means its decent.

All the psych degree folks I know either don't use it or have no jobs. You can get a good job selling insurance with it.

You can do a shitload with a psych degree. If you cannot get a job yourself, get your own practice started.

I got a psych degree 30 years ago. I never intended it to be job training, I knew I'd be in business. I've been a carpenter for 30 years and a contractor for over 20. The best thing about a psych degree is that it had some of the least requirements and I could take pretty much anything I wanted to. My education is actually more what was typically called liberal arts, although there is a pretty heavy sprinkling of real science (which is not what most psych is).

If you want a career I would strongly suggest some work in construction during the summer. If you like it and you're smart you'll be able to write your own ticket, at least around NYC. You can't find any English speaking help and those that can are quite well paid.
