Description:

Career Paths in Psychology is the ideal guide for anyone contemplating a career in psychology: students, recent graduates, career-changers, or psychologists seeking new challenges. In this book, psychologists who have achieved great success in a variety of areas discuss their work: what got them into it, what they like and don't like about it, and what a typical work week is like in their chosen specialty. These psychologists offer advice, information, and the inspiration of their own career paths. They speak frankly about salaries and job opportunities and about what it takes to make it in their field.
