Ep 198: What’s it Like to Work in Psychology?

A lot of people find psychology interesting. But what is it really like to work in psychology? A tough question to answer because the field is so broad. In this episode of The Psych Files podcast I’ll share my thoughts on the difference between learning about psychology and actually doing psychology as a career. It’s a tough thing to capture because psychologists could spend their day doing psychotherapy, or working with inmates in prison, conducting research with children or doing complex statistical analyses. Some careers in psychology pay well while others pay poorly. A job in psychology can also cause burnout because of the heavy demands. I hope to give you some valuable things to think about it you’re thinking about a career in psychology.
