Lasa 2—assembling a career path

 

Throughout this course, you have been exposed to an overview of the discipline of psychology, including expectations for the psychology major, career options for students completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and career options for students who pursue a graduate degree.

Review the information on career paths for psychologists and counselors from the readings and do some of your own research using credible sources. Drawing upon the information you collected and analyzed in previous assignments and research, write a paper that outlines the career path that you think is most suitable for you at this point in your educational experience.  

Be as specific as possible and include each of the following items in your paper:

  • Identify a career path and explain why it is a suitable choice.  
  • Identify the skills, experiences, and educational requirements for this path.
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses and explain how they relate to your chosen path.
  • Describe the skills, preparation, and experiences that have already been completed by you.
  • Describe what skills, preparation, and experiences you still need to acquire (for example, research experience, volunteer work, developing a professional network, etc.).
  • Outline a clear plan (including a timeline) for meeting these goals and gaining those skills and experiences. Make sure to do outside research to discuss specifically where you can gain those skills and experiences, how much it will cost, and how you plan to prioritize.
  • Select and describe at least one professional organization that would be appropriate to join in your chosen career path and why it is the most appropriate. Make sure that you identify the specific resources and standards it would provide you as a professional.

Display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Be sure to demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources.

Write a 5–6 page paper in Word format in a clear, concise, and organized manner. Include a cover page and reference page in APA style. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.doc.
