I am unsure of what I want to do with my career/college life?2E, clenched multitudinous -2017-05-02 00:08:16
Hi-MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Currently I am a student of 11th and I'm really torn between three things ... I sure I want to do with my life ... I know I want / need to go to college, most likely a community college and I want to do something in science. I do not want some sort of a counselor, most likely a maladaptive behavior or grief counselor, but I think by the time you graduate, I would have had enough life experience to get the respect that I would need customer , so maybe before I would love to be a criminal profiler or be a psychologist who helps the criminal justice system .. The other career / major would be a respiratory therapist, and my mom just survive a 100-pound tumor is removed and the equipment in the hospital really inspired me to go in that direction, and help my mother with several methods respiratory care (ie, deep breath) .. MedlinePlus I'm so scared that I will choose the wrong grade and not want to lose money or scholarship opportunity. I know I should follow my dreams and do what I'm happy but I do not know what my dream and I would be happy in either, I'm always making a positive difference in the world ... MedlinePlus I'm caught between two schools, either Chaminade or Kapiolani, at Kapiolani I could get my AS in breathing therapy and can be done in 2 years and I have a job in a hospital, or at Chaminade, potentially doubling justice psychology and criminal / forensic science to pursue then my teachers .. I forgot to include the research that I love and I would like in the future to continue my PhD in psychology most likely .. MedlinePlus my mom wants me forget my dream psychology as I would feel more secure with both schoolarships and career (smart money) on the route of breathing, but then see that after my period, which I think is more than just money necessary and would be easier to choose and pursue right now in. .. I'm just kind of scared right now and need some help choosing what to do and when to apply for college is coming ...[View Answers]
My Future Career. Help, Please!?1lizbeth2016-07-13 23:22:43
Hello Everyone. My name is Giselle. I am really thinking about what I want to do with my life. I just graduated last year with an Associates Degree by doing PSEO. So I already have a two year degree and just graduated! I am really thinking about what I want to do and I really need help, please! Well, first of all I am really into Acting. If I could, I would be an Actress with a blink of an eye and would be set. And I already know that Im going to be trying acting on the side and trying reallly hard to get a good reputation for Actressing. So hopefully that works out and maybe it will. BUT, if that doesnt work out, I think that I would want to bet my Bachelors Degree in Business, and my Masters is Psychology. Is that possible? Also, If acting again doesn't work, I really would like to either open up my own Pet Store which most likely will fail, or open up a Chain of Taco Bells. That will be expensive though so I deffinately need a side career to get enough money for a Taco Bell. read[View Answers]

I was a confused child &I still am. What should I do (career-wise)?0Whisky Ï„? 2012-11-05 14:50:16
I'm 19 &in college. I am totally messed up as a person. I haven't gotten anything right or straightened out. I'd like to get one thing right. I don't know if I'm in the right field/major right now. I'd like to at least get that right...or close to it. -I'm interested in psychology &the way people behave &think but I'm definitely not qualified in helping people with their problems (I'm mentally ill myself &slightly suicidal) -I'm also interested in the human body its biology. Like why the body does this when you do that, etc. Oh yeah, and nutrition &the body. Muscles! -I'd like a job/career that is in demand &can be utilized to help people in need of dire help. I am going to try to get into a nursing program now but I'm afraid I don't have the right qualities &personality for it. You need a headstrong personality. You need to be able to make split-second decisions. You need confidence. I don't have any of those. I ask too many "what if's." I go through every option. I'm hesitant on making decisions. I don't speak my mind freely. I'm not too good with socializing. What jobs/careers do you think I will have some luck with?[View Answers]
Any Career/Grad School advice for a Psychology B.S. graduate?0Abas2012-11-04 18:31:58
I've graduated from college a few months ago with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a Business Concentration. I don't have a strong objection to going on to grad school, but I feel that I'm not qualified. While I have a decent GPA (3.41), I don't have any research experience. Also, to be honest, I still don't know what it is that I want to do exactly, and have been told it's ill-advised to fully commit to a grad program until I figure that out. On the other hand, I have been informed of and have seen how bleak the job market is out there for psych grads with only a bachelor's. I don't necessarily even have a strong desire to stay within the psych field, I guess I just want to know my options. Basically, if you were in my position, what would you do? Are there any jobs out there where people are just looking for a college degree in general and I can work my way up? Should I just work anywhere for a while and then apply to grad school later? Is there a way to research experience after graduating? Any and all advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated and any advice regarding career/grad school outside of the psych-scope would be great too. P.S. Sorry to bombard you with questions but my college advisors were absolute crap and I feel completely lost.[View Answers]
What is a good career path to take for a mom?0Marilyn2012-11-04 18:01:37
Im so confused! The only thing I want to be in life is a great mom and wife. However, I know I should also be working and helping to provide for my family. I want to make money and be able to have a nice home. Currently I have one more year before I get my bachelors in psychology. My gpa is really low right now though, making it nearly impossible for me to go into grad school. I am artistic, great with children and animals, and I'm a quick learner. I wouldn't mind going back to get certified for something, I just feel like I'm stuck at a deadend right now... Can anyone help me? I went to the career center at school and she said basically I'm looking at a life of retail ahead of me and there is no way I want to go back into retail again. I want to either be able to make my own schedule or have a set schedule with nights and weekends off... Any ideas?? I'm open to literally anything! (within limits of course).[View Answers]
Is psychology a good major for a stable lifestyle?0keyera2012-11-04 16:28:03
Hello, all! I am currently a junior searching for a definite major that I want to pursue. I have been planning on pursuing psychology, but I am not sure if it is a stable and/or successful major. Based on certain sites, many argue that psychology 'isn't a good major' or that you will not achieve the career you're looking for. Let's say you decide to pursue a job after undergraduate school (before you go on for a PhD in the future)...can a psychology major somehow allow you to get a somewhat decent job (even though you may not even have a master's,etc.)? Also, what would be defined as a good major that can get you a good job from undergraduate to graduate schools? (I'm mostly a humanities/liberal arts type of person, so I am generally interested in careers that involve writing and the mind, or possibly careers relating to law.) I've thought about education, but I am not completely sure how that works in terms of salary, etc. (I've had student teachers come to my school, and they do not get paid for teaching, but it is rather something they do to finalize their work at college before they apply for jobs). Thank you very much![View Answers]
What kind of job can I find with a psychology degree?0Trev2012-11-04 15:47:20
I'll be graduating with an undergraduate psychology degree soon and I'm totally regretting making this my major since it's a pretty useless degree. What can I possibly do with it? If I go to grad school, would I be able to sign up for a program that will allow me to work in a different field that would allow me to apply psychology or is it too late and I'm stuck with psychology only? Please help me out!![View Answers]
Professional Dilemma over career path?0koala2012-11-04 14:47:32
Having graduated as engineer, and never enjoyed it. During my studies i showed zero-interest. All the time i was doing psychanalysis and reading psychology books to fight away my difficulties. All this struggle created an interest in psychology. Now i am feeling better having understood many aspects of myself. But i am in a position where i have to decide: Work as an engineer ? or start studying psychology? Being 28 years old, thel ogical answer is : " start working as an engineer, to make money and make your own life...And probably you will find it interesting as you progress in the field. You will start loving it if you put effort on it, and seeing the results of this effort in your finance and the things you can buy in your life". On the other hand comes the emotion... I;ve been thinking psychologically/psychanalytically throughout my life... Firstly trying to understand myself and the reasons of my problems, but then it all became interest into the field of psychology.. But...in order to survive the competition i would have to study almost a decade.. because it would take 4 years of psych studies + 2/3 years of masters + 4-5 years of phd = almost a decade to start getting paid.... So it is a very difficult answer... One could say "work as an engineer, and read psychology books as a hobby". Well, that would mean spend 10-12 hours working as an engineer, and spend 1-2 hours reading psychology books (if these 1-2 hours exist...). I chose engineering due to pressure from society and family. The traditional opinion is " pick the one that brings you more money", while the right wa of thinking is "pick the one that you love". Well, i thought with the first way, and as a result i faced the consequences : boredom, feeling very sad in the thought that i would be working as an engineer and not psychologist etc... The thought of moving into psychology excites me to a degree that i stop doing the substitutes in my life (eating sweets , etc). and motivates me... On the other hand it is as if i am trying to seek permission from my parents or other people , to let me follow psychology... My decision-algorithm is : if i will work as an engineer, and start liking it, then i wull go for it and start working as an engineer. But if i am not going to like it , even if it pays me well, then i will move onto studying psychology... Sometimes the studies are different from practice...Sometimes you dislike the studies, while you like the practice. So, here is where i base my thinking : That the emotion can change, and that the fact that i do not like engineering does not guarantee that i will never like it. But this is a risk,... What if i never like it??? how would i feel in 5 years from now , thinking that "ok i make money, but i do not like it... "? What are the factors that would make me like engineering and forget about psychology?? All these years i am without energy, without mood... Maybe it is that i do something that i never really liked... If i press myself to start working as engineer, will the results (eg afford to stay alone, buy my car, treat girls etc) make me love the profession or am i doomed to never love it (so if this is true, then i have no other option than to start studying psychology)?[View Answers]

Thinking about becoming a flight attendant...please read?0Malik2012-11-03 08:27:09
Okay, so I've read around on here trying to get an idea about what it would be like to be a flight attendant. I have no doubt that I would enjoy it, but I'm wondering whether it's worth it. Here's my situation. I graduated from Florida Southern College this year with a bachelor's in Psychology. Now I'm living in Chicago with my boyfriend of six years, who is currently interning at a law office and is working on his degree. He eventually wants to either move east to practice law or become involved in the UN. The latter would require us to move around a lot--we do plan to get married some day. This lifestyle is perfect for me, because I would love moving around. However, I'd also be open to settling down if that turns out to work better. I could get my master's and work. But for now, I am considering being a flight attendant until I have a better idea of what I want. Would doing this be essentially throwing my schooling away? Because I do intend to use it someday, I'm just not sure I'm ready to settle into a regular job right now. Would this be foolish, or wise?[View Answers]

Pursuing psych degree, advice or alternatives? Please help?0RRG2012-11-02 01:08:02
For the moment.. my plan is to get a master or doctorate in a psychology. Should I get a different degree that nets higher pay&better job availability/conditions? I'm really looking for suggestions to other fields of work that are related, but are more practical. I understand this is a personal decision but i'm hoping for some guidance, tales of experience, or flat out recommendations :) STOP READING ANYTIME and leave an answer! don't feel overwhelmed by my walls of text, if you have advice please leave it! I type so much to give you a feel for where i'm at and it's non-essential to the question basically I want to be a personal therapist for drug addicted youth, i'm also open to a sort of counselor for a group settings. I'm torn between that and something focused on research in the psych field. I find fulfillment in directly helping others make positive change, so I think the counselling would be the right path. I'm expecting a lot of debt and maybe this job choice isn't practical? Could you suggest a similar field, where perhaps I major in a different subject but end up doing the same work. One that pays more or has higher job availability? Other majors i'm interested in are neurology, pharmacology, nutrition, and maybe nursing? It'd be really cool to nurse on the side a few days a week (i know i know high stress and **** hours but I'd be helping and making an impact on people directly) and school part time. That route would take longer with a degree. I might be able to more than minimally support myself, as well as earn experience, then it seems worth it to me.[View Answers]
How much does a Social Worker with a Masters make?0anabelle2012-10-27 14:15:35
I was interested to specialize and eventually obtain a doctorate in Clinical Psychology ! After much research , I thought that a social worker would be better for me because I like dealing directly with people and help children and families in need! I like both fields ( based on research ) , but I do not know what is best for my interests ! It also seems to be based on psychology a lot of theories and assumptions. My problem is that in social work , not make a lot of money ( but I like what I do ) , while the psychology is very hard to find ![View Answers]
