Om boka

The Psychology Student's Career Survival Guide is designed to aid students in identifying their ideal career pathway and imbue them with the right tools and skills to not only achieve their desired job but to progress and thrive within the workplace.





The first half of the book focuses on how to find and get a suitable job. The remaining chapters explore gaining success in the workplace in terms of personal growth, navigating criticism, workplace relations and the critical job assignments that every graduate should pursue. Forsythe, an experienced organisational psychologist, helps students recognise and apply the acquired psychological skill set to develop a personal brand, increase personal visibility and develop professional networks. This smooths the transition from university into the world of work by developing effective working practices that will support personal performance and that of the workplace. This book can also serve as a practical guide for academics looking to bridge the gap between the developing student at university and demands of their future employers. It explicitly calls for vocational elements such as communication, team-working, goal setting and planning within the curriculum.





This engaging book comes with an abundance of resources to support students' individual development and to help academics run workshops. These resources include tool kits which include self-diagnostic tools and strengths finders, networking skill development, job search strategies, difficult interview questions, personal branding and so on. This is an essential text for psychology students at all levels looking for employability guidance and for psychology academics who are seeking supportive resources and guidance on helping students achieve their career ambitions.
