  1. Hello all! For those who are in an I/O Psychology PhD or Masters' program, or who has finished, what is your current job or what job/career are you hoping to have? I'm very interested and curious in knowing, since I want to pursue further education in I/O Psychology and I would love to know everyone's jobs/careers! Thanks!
  2. Hello, I have some research experience, but not a whole lot. But I do have a good amount of work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteer experience that's related to my major and the field I want to study in a PhD program. Are there any tips on how to incorporate everything and make me look like a good candidate even though I may not have as much research experience but a ton of everything of everything else that can translate to good research experience? Through my work experience I definitely have some research interests in mind by the way. Thanks in advance!
  3. Anyone know anything about the new I/O psychology masters program? I like the idea of being located in Raleigh, NC but I don't know anything about the program. The next information session is in mid-March I believe. Has anyone been to a previous session and have info to share?

    What to do?!?

    I have a M.S. degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience. For the better part of the year, i have yet to find a job in this field, better yet, Im having issues with finding a job at all. What are my job opportunities with this degree? I want to get into neuromarketing but I dont know how to go about doing that. I may have an upcoming teaching position at my old university however that's not something I would want to do for a long time. The other options I have are to go back to school in either counseling or I/o psychology. I just want to know what i should be doing.

    Advice for I/O psych program

    I plan on applying to LaTech University in Louisiana for its I/O psych program. I already have an M.S. in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience with more of a focus on cognitive psychology. While obtaining the I/O degree I want to focus on doing stats as I've learned that is most marketable. I have some questions hopefully someone will answer them. 1. Is LaTech a good I/O psych school? 2. What should I focus on while in school? 3. What can I do to make myself enticing to I/O programs? 4. If anybody can share their experiences of going to school for I/O psych and the work they do in their industry? Thanks answering!!!
  6. Hello everyone! I've benefited from this forum for a long time but it's the first time for me to post new topics. Also, as my mother language is not English, I want to say sorry first for any possible improper expression in this topic. Recently I'm accepted to two I/O PhD programs and feel it hard to make decisions.(And I know I shouldn't procrastinate any longer)Therefore, I hope to get some suggestions there. Here is some information about these two programs. Program A: It has a medium ranking.The potential advisor is very famous in his area and his research area is something I think I like (at least I enjoy it at this moment). As far as I know, his advising style seems fit to me. BUT due to his age, he is not that active in academia as before and we can see it from the number of his publications every year though I can feel his great passion for research. From conversations with current students, I can feel it's very collaborative within the program. They're very warm and helpful! Program A is located in a city and I like the multicultural context and climate there. It seems to have some internship opportunities there. Program B: It has a significantly better ranking. The research interest of my potential advisor who is also very famous in his area is a little bit wide which really covers something I like and something far away from me. Because they don't have interviews and I can't go to the V day, I can't personally generate an impression of his advising style. From the emails, I feel that he is strict and passionate with his research. Program B is located near a city with many internship opportunities. However, I'm not sure if I will adjust myself to climate and the environment there. For myself, I think I will have an academic career until now but I expect any possibilities in the future. And I don't know how much the prestige of a program will affect the possibility for its students to get a faculty position. And the offer from Program B came just shortly before and I think I have had some emotional bonds with Program A (I think I will go there so I may find a lot of reasons and evidence to support it) so I don't think I can be objective enough to make final decisions. Hope to get any advice on this. Thanks in advance!
  7. Is it too soon for Fall 2019? Well here we go! I recently switched back to I/O psychology (after a brief detour through health psychology). I'm planning on applying to programs this year for fall 2019 programs. I'm a little lost when it comes to contacting POI's. Is this recommended or neutral? But mainly what do you even say if you do contact them?? It's tough to know who will be accepting students next year but if you're looking to apply, what are your top schools? Thank you for any advice and good luck to everyone!!

    I/O Psychology

    Hey Everyone,I have recently started looking into grad I/O and I just had some questions concerning the career:1) Is it possible to work in industry as a consultant and maintain a position as a professor at my local university? I have always been interested in having a role in academia as well as working somewhere outside of academia as well. 2) What is work/life balance like in this field? In other words, will I be required to work during my "days off" and what not.3) And finally, I hate to be that guy, but what is the typical starting salary? I know this varies based on location, but I looked up the average salary in my location and it said somewhere around 110K which didn't sound right at all (Sounds more like a salary after 10 years of experience or so). Then I kept snooping around and I cam across a more accurate figure: 85K. Does this sound about right?Thanks for your time.
  9. Hey all, Anyone hear back from NYU I/O psychology master program?? I am anxiously waiting as it is my top choice. I got into Columbia's Social Organizational Psychology and Cornell's MILR. From previous years, the decision for NYU usually came out in the first two weeks of March, however, it is now mid-March. I have a very bad feeling that they are going to reject me. I already followed up with the coordinator and she just said I will hear back soon. So anyone hear back yet?? Thanks!!!
  10. I am applying to I/O psychology programs with the hope of studying bias and discrimination in the workplace, and I am concerned about Trump's policy implications and potential withholding of funding from universities conducting research in this area. Anyone else have similar concerns? I imagine this is also applicable to other fields as well (natural sciences, biology, etc.) Anyone currently in doc programs that have insight or perspective here?

    Online Master's in I/O psychology

    Hi All!! I've finally discovered my calling and am very excited to pursue a Mater's degree in I/O Psychology. Life requires that I remain in my small mountain resort town for work and family so I am looking for an online graduate degree program. Anyone out there have recommendations? Ideas? Thanks in advance for your feedback! Michele @ Brundage
  12. Hi, I graduated back in June with a BS in neuroscience. Even though I loved the science, I hated the research (it's extremely repetitive and prone to random errors; plus I want to work with humans). In recent months I discovered psychology as a possible grad school option. It combines the scientific thinking that I like with the human interaction that I crave. I plan to apply to masters programs in psychology and/or I/O psychology. However, I have several concerns: 1) I only took one psych course (Intro) in undergrad with no psych lab/stats courses (though I took many other lab/stats courses for my major). 2) My work experience profile is probably not a fit for I/O program (in a medical volunteer club for 2 years, tutored mol bio for 2 years, did research at a biochem lab for 3 years, now working as a TA in a research class). I have a strong research background which might give the false impression that I'm more into research than applied psych... 3) Having recently decided to enter psych, my knowledge in the field is limited compared to my peers who spent years researching it. I would really like to enter an I/O program because my eventual goal is to become a consultant. An I/O program can provide me with the business education background/internship/networking that's crucially important for any career in business (something I neglected as a science undergrad). Sure, I can go for a PhD in I/O after getting my MA in general psych, but I'd rather not commit to a research program that takes up 5 years of my life... Other backgrounds: 1) Graduated Magna Cum Laude from a top UC school 2) Highest departmental honors with research thesis 3) GRE- 157VR/167QR/4.5W Should I even try to apply to I/O psych or just focus on general psych? How should I tailor my research background so that I seem fit for psychology? Has anybody been in the same situation and would like to share your opinion? Any input is highly appreciated! Thanks guys!
  13. Hoping to get some responses from people who have experience with any MA/MS programs in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) psychology. I pored through nearly every existent page in SIOP and Neoacademic, but still have trouble deciding which programs are best for me. I am currently in NYC and would love to stay here (Columbia, NYU, Baruch, U of Albany SUNY), but I also hope to apply to 4-6 more schools and don't know which ones would give me the best experience. I am willing to move anywhere in the US if the school has good faculty and a strong program. I/O psychology MA/MS program rankings are basically nonexistent since it is still a relatively new field, so I would really appreciate hearing about any experiences in such programs. Thanks! - Tom
  14. Hey everyone, I have been looking at I/O programs for about a year. In my search, I ahve started coming across some Social/Organizational Psychology programs at places like NYU, Northern Illinois University, Temple University, and Columbia. Does anyone know the main differences between I/O and S/O? Is one more suited for academic vs. applied settings? Is one more prestigious than the other? Just trying to make sure I am exploring all of my options. Thanks!
  15. So I had this school in mind for a couple years until finally applying for this Fall. After doing my research on the school and their programs I was very impressed and they were always available when I had questions. I applied for the Masters for Fall 2016 and was accepted faster than I expected. So now I'm digging a bit deeper into the school's rep and I am finding things that raise great concern. It's disheartening to learn the school you were considering has a bad reputation. Just wondering if anyone else has any feedback in regards to the school (LA campus). Also, is APA accreditation something important to check for for I/O programs? I was told it is only necessary for the clinical programs. Thanks for your responses!
  16. Hello guys, I am an international student. I have applied to a bunch of masters programs in Industrial & Organizational Psychology for Fall 2016. I've received acceptances from University of Central Florida, Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and Illinois Institute of Technology so far. I'm still waiting to hear from other, maybe better programs. But one of these universities require a decision within the next 10 days. I am very confused to say the least. Please give me your opinions on which program should be a better choice according to you. Thank you!
  17. Hi all, I was thinking it would be useful for Fall 2012 applicants to share experiences regarding the programs of choice, application process, admission/rejection. I'm an international student and so far I have applied to: Central Michigan University Western Ontario About to apply to: Waterloo Akron University of Tulsa Northern Illinois Uni. - Social & I/O masters Preparing application to: Florida Institute of Technology IUPUI San Francisco State University of Connecticut
  18. I have been doing a LOT of research on I/O programs lately and am trying to figure out what I should do. I eventually want to get a PhD in I/O but know for a fact that I wouldn't get into a PhD program right now, so am just on the verge of applying to some MA/MS programs and retaking the GRE (took it last year but only got a 950). I was planning on applying to NYU, Columbia, George Mason, CSU- Long Beach, SFSU, and maybe San Jose State. I like the applied side of I/O more, but I do enjoy doing research but don't necessarily want to work in academia. I'm graduating in a week with a B.S. in Psych, my overall GPA is a 3.0 (did bad my first year of school before transferring), Psychology GPA is a 3.6, and last 60 hours of school is a 3.5. I don't have much in the way of presentations or published papers, with the exception of my Research Methods class study and subsequent presentation of that paper. My only practicum experience is I worked in the HR dept of a non-profit company with 800 employees from May-August of this year, and am constructing a survey right now to help them with an accreditation process. When I was there, I helped with the interview and hiring process, created a couple of online training modules for the staff, and worked with several other dept's too. Should I try to get into a Masters program for Fall 2012, or try to get good research experience and go immediately into a PhD? Since the cheapest school I'm trying to get into is ~$16,000/year (and NYU/Columbia are $24k), I'm trying to make sure I choose the right path. I have an extremely strong LOR from the Executive Director of the company from which I've been an intern at, and the head of the I/O dept at my current school (UTC) is also willing to write me one.
  19. Hello all, I am in my first semester of an industrial/organizational doctoral program, and I'm quickly learning that this field might not be right for me. Obviously, it would have been better if I had figured that out before I started, but I had totally different expectations for it. I've been thinking that I would have been much better off going into clinical, which is where I've been finding myself most drawn to when doing my coursework. I find I/O dry, detached, and irrelevant. But here's the problem: I am fully funded by the I/O department at my university, so I obviously cannot simply "switch" over to clinical. If I'm not mistaken, I would have to completely drop out, and then re-apply to clinical programs next year. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with changing doctoral focus - i.e., how much would "dropping-out" of I/O hurt my chances of being accepted elsewhere into a clinical program? Also, I'd love some insight into "dropping-out" in general; how badly does the department take it? I don't want to burn any bridges and for an I/O program, my school is great, but I just don't think it's right for me. Should I just suck it up since I signed up for this in the first place, and they are funding me? (Funding is on a year-to-year basis, so while I would probably be funded again next year, the money they are giving me is not contingent on the entire 5-6 years.) I would really appreciate any insights. Thank you in advance! -Confused grad
