Are you a psychology student who will soon be making the transition from college to career? Pre-professional experience in the field can give job-seekers a huge advantage. There is a new guide to pre-professional psychology opportunities, Pre-Professional Psychology Opportunities

http://www.learnpsychology.org/pre-professional-experience/

____

Classroom-based learning can only take a student so far, and eventually, psychology students need to seek out real-world training to make themselves more marketable to employers. This guidebook will help students find the best internships, work-study programs, and other pre-professional psychology experiences available.

The guide was produced in part by Dr. Steven Buzinski, Director of Undergraduate Research at the University of North Carolina. It includes an exhaustive list of pre-professional options, the pros and cons of each, and tips on moving from college into a professional or academic career.
