Hello all. I was wondering if people who majored in pysch could answer a few questions of mine. Until recently I worked as an IT technician. I got laid off and realized that finding another IT position is going to be near impossible in this flooded market. (espcially for someone who didn't have a chance yet to grab any MCSE's and we know how fast the computer world changes so by the time I got another job, I would have to work my ass off, just to learn all the new technology) Also, on top of that, I didn't really love IT work. While I did enjoy it, I already knew when doing it, it wasn't something I wanted to for the rest of my life. (funny how they expect you to make a decision about what you want to do for the rest of your life when you're only 17/18 years old.....but that's a whole other tangent ) As I became more self-aware of my talents I realized I had the uncanny ability to pyschoanalyze people, culture, ect. I also found myself reading a lot of the works of Freud, Leary, ect. If I take care of everything I need to, I can go back to college in a year and I'm seriously considering pyschology. So I have a few questions for those who already went down that road...... What are the general types of jobs you can obtain with a bachelor's degree in pysch? Did you go to graduate school after getting your degree? What types of employment are available then? How long does it take to obtain a PHd? Pyschology seems to be a pretty open field. How open is the job market. Is getting a pysch job nepolitical or is it actually based on what you know and not who you know? What is the internship market like? Did your school help you find an internship? If you minored in another field, what was is, and how did it help your pyschology major? Any other information you can wish to tell me is alright to. I would also love to hear from anyone currently in school, majoring in pysch. I'm really considering this path. It interests me, it seems to be fairly liberal (I don't like ultra-structured things), and I really would like help people. I really appreciate those who take their time to talk about their pyschology history.
