Building Your Career in Psychology
Building Your Career in Psychology (Hammond & Brady-Amoon, 2022) serves as a practical guide and resource for people interested in psychology careers. It emphasizes making informed decisions to maximize engagement in college, career decision-making, preparation, and management. The book includes relevant career development content and exercises, college success content and practice, as well as reflection exercises and other resources to assist readers in discovering their own path to a meaningful life and meaningful life’s work.
The primary theme in this book is that psychological knowledge makes a difference in people’s lives. As such, we emphasize the role of psychology in promoting well-being and solving real-world issues. Building on this theme, this book serves as an empowered process guide for making the most of college and other career preparation experiences, with a distinctive emphasis on 1) career/ life planning and decision-making and 2) healthy professional and personal relationships. This text is also unique in respecting and addressing the experiences and interests and career development needs of an increasingly diverse population, including nontraditional students.
