if you have been following me for awhile, you know i have been struggling my senior year of college to figure out what i want to do with my degrees
(psychology and human resource management). i have finally figured out what i am doing with them, and i think it’s a perfect balance between the two.
i’m going on to get my phd and will be studying industrial/organizational psychology!! i’m super excited, because these psychologists study and improve workplace behaviors to make businesses more efficient. i would build tests, strategies, etc. to make sure businesses run smoothly and are doing things good for the workplace culture.
creating tests would include personality tests!!! and i would really focus my studies on recruiting and hiring the right employees for the job. and once i feel like i need to do something new, i could become a full-time professor!!
my top three favorite things are: researching/studying people/theories, organization/efficiency, and teaching others.
i have learned about this field a lot in my classes, but i was always hesitant to keep going to school since it will take longer. i have decided it is worth it. so i’m very pleased and will be applying for graduate programs soon.
