PSYCHOLOGY CAREER MENTORSHIP
Psychology as a career path has caught the fancy of many. The field is brimming with exciting opportunities in diverse fields such as Clinical settings, Hospitals, Organizations, Schools and even Sports teams/clubs. While expansion & growth within the field is a positive trend, students often end up confused regarding which branch of psychology they want to follow, job roles & responsibilities of a Psychologist, course and college selection and future prospects in the field.
