  • Hi ShaRae! I graduated with my Bachelors of psychology about a year ago. Since then i have been preparing myself to take the GRE and apply to grad schools. However, I am now stuck between clinical and I/o psych. what advice do you have for me on the success of i/o? Some say that I/o won't be worth it financially, is that true? Last, what advice do you have on applying to grad school? Thank you so much

  • Hey! nice video! Being an I/O is one of the careers I am interested in pursuing while majoring in Psychology. Do you mind if we are able to further discuss your experience and knowledge via email or whatever it may be?

  • Hello my name is Erica, and I wanted to say thank you for sharing your information and responses in so much detail! I recently completed my BS in Psychology and I am torn between I/O psychology and clinical psychology for my masters degree. Your decision to go for your PhD in clinical psychology may prove to be a better option for me as well.  I am very interested to know more about your course load for the I/O psychology masters program as well as your job search and experiences after you obtain your degree. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I would love to email you some additional questions as well.
    Thank you!

  • Hello ShaRae! Great video it was very helpful and informative. I'm a Junior Organizational Leadership major in college and have recently started looking into the field of I/O Psychology. Many of the classes that I'm taking align with the concepts displayed in your video, but I don't have a psychology. Any advice on how to break into the field or gain experience before a potential grad school? I'm a Sociology minor btw.
