  1. Hi everyone! I am new to the forum and I wanted to know if someone could give their honest advice and opinion on a few things. 1) What do you think my chances are of being accepted into an IO PhD program for Fall 2019? Here's my stats: Undergrad GPA: 3.85 GRE: Haven't taken it yet but scheduled for July 2018 Research: 2 years in a psychology lab, 3 conferences, won first place at one conference Internships: 2 years interning for an IO psychologist at a private consulting firm (also the person I conducted research under) My undergrad university had an IO professor so I've taken courses such as OB, Intro to IO, Learning & Psychological Testing. 2) I've been researching POI at different institutions and I would like to reach out but I am unsure of how to word it or what exactly to say. Is it improper to ask if they are accepting students next year? 3) Can anyone give a link where I can find a good IO personal statement to guide myself? I'm having trouble figuring out how to start it off. I really appreciate any advice or tips from any and everyone!
  2. 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!

    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!!!

    I/O Psych Job Hunt Experience

    I am about to commence my graduate program in Fall 2018. I wanted people's feedback on a few questions as I look forward to applying for jobs and internships. What was your experience looking for jobs after completing the I/O Psych Masters? Is the degree recognized across the nation, are the positions highly competitive, etc.? What are some suggestions you would offer in terms of what skills companies are looking for in an entry-level position? From your experience, what are some mistakes you made while looking for jobs, that you think could have been avoided? What was your opening salary for an entry-level I/O Psych position? What skills are highly sought after in an employee with an I/O degree? Overall, are there any regrets for pursuing I/O Psychology? I know the questions are pretty broad, but I can use all the info you may be able to share. Thank you for any feedback.
  5. I was hoping for a little advice!! I am a senior psychology major and getting ready to apply for graduate school. I am tied between industrial organizational (I/O) psychology and counseling psychology. For a few years now my plan was counseling. I have a big passion for mental health. Recently, industrial organizational psychology sparked my interest. The idea of helping companies with employee productivity, job satisfaction and overall health seemed interesting. It seemed like it would be similar to counseling but in a workforce setting. So I started looking more into programs for I/O than counseling. However I also am finding that a lot of the jobs for I/O psychology involve more management/business skills than psychology. I'm seeing that the tasks of I/O psychologists involve a lot of programming and research. Also, I do not have business experience and I'm afraid that may hurt me in applying for I/O graduate school. I have had experience as a crisis counselor and mental health board member so I feel my skills and experience may be better for applying for counseling graduate school. What really grabbed my attention for I/O psychology was the expected job growth and bigger average salaries. After researching more, counseling psychology's job growth is about the same. And the salaries aren't much less. So I feel like my obvious answer would be to go back towards counseling but I'm still unsure about my decision and wanted to ask for any feedback or advice that anyone may have. Thanks! --
  6. Hello, I will be finishing up with my MS in Industrial/Organizational Psychology this summer. I have wanted my PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology for a long time now. This has been my goal since I was a sophomore at my undergrad institution. I applied to about 10 PhD programs for the Fall 2017 school year, but I was only admitted into one school. This August, I am supposed to start my PhD in Business Psychology with a concentration in I/O psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology - DC campus. I asked a couple of undergraduate and graduate professors about the school, specifically their Washington D.C. campus, and I was told by these professors that it is a reputable school. I have my doubts. I am wondering if anyone has graduated with their PhD from their DC campus. I have heard that only a few of the campuses are reputable, and one of those campuses is the DC campus. I would like to hear from people that have either specifically heard about the Business Psychology program or attended the program. Furthermore, I am also concerned with the title of the degree. The degree is typically referred to "I/O psychology" and not "Business Psychology". I know the term is sometimes used in other countries, but here in the United States I have only heard the field be referred to as Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I am in a dilemma, and I am trying to figure out if I should just go ahead and go, or would it be better to just re-apply to PhD programs for Fall 2018.

    Human Factors to Social to I/O. Halp?

    Hello everyone, I'm applying to graduate schools this semester, and as the dates draw nearer and nearer I've been having a lot of anxiety about the area of psychology I've chosen to study, and I'm starting to have second thoughts. Up until now, I was set on human factors or a heavily applied cognitive program. I've spent two years working as an RA in two different human factors labs, and am doing an independent study in one of the labs. However, I'm starting to realize that I really like cognitive and human factors, but I don't know if I love cognitive and human factors. Going back a few years to when I was trying to figure out which area of psychology I was interested in, I came across a description of social psychology, and thought it was really interesting. However, 1.) I heard that getting into social programs is almost on par with getting into clinical programs in terms of competitiveness, and 2.) it's important to me to work in applied research that I know will have real world applications, and I was told a lot of social psych research is more basic in nature. Anywho, this semester I'm taking a course in social psychology for fun. Within the first week I've read the first few chapters and have fallen in love. There feels like a real CLICK, and I've never felt this way in the few years I've been studying cognitive and human factors. TLDR, I'm seriously considering changing what I want to go to graduate school for, and I'm trying to figure out how to go about it. I'm also trying to figure out if there are other areas of psychology that use social, kind of like how human factors uses cognitive. Does I/O use a lot of social? What does a competitive applicant of I/O or social psych look like? Since my only experience in research thus far has been in human factors, would anyone recommend a post-bacc? Any help would be great!
  8. Hey guys, Im an undergrad student that is looking to get into an IO Psychology doctorate program in a few years. However, I can't decide if I want to double major in Psychology and Management or just major in Psychology. If I only major in Psychology, will I have a significantly lower chance of being accepted at an IO Phd program? And will I be unprepared for the business aspects of an IO program if I don't have any knowledge about business? Any answers are appreciated, thanks!
  9. 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
  10. 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!
