Finding Career Opportunities in I-O Psychology and Related Fields
7-8:30 p.m. ET Thursday, November 17, 2022
This workshop is part of a series designed to help connect I-O graduate students, particularly those in online graduate programs, to the greater I-O community through connections to keynote speakers, alumni panelists, skill-building sessions, and other networking opportunities. Students and faculty (particularly those who mentor/advise I-O driven undergraduate and graduate students) are invited.
This session will feature speakers who are successful I-O online graduate program alumni. They will share their stories of how they built their careers and overcame obstacles as well as provide guidance for how students can prepare for the next steps in their career path. A question-and-answer period will follow their presentations to provide an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and engage with the panelists.
