Often times, those graduating with an undergraduate degree in psychology find themselves feeling limited in their next step following degree completion; they feel they must jump immediately into a graduate program or that they possess a degree that does not provide opportunity for job placement without further training or academia. While most will go off to a graduate program, which is highly encouraged at some point, there are other fulfilling measures that can be taken before then to make you a well- rounded and advantageous candidate for graduate studies. This talk will highlight job opportunities and CV building experiences that are available and beneficial to those possessing a bachelor's degree in psychology following graduation.

Jessica Cannone is a first year Psy.D. student at Hofstra University. She graduated from St. Joseph’s College in 2017 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. Following graduation, she was employed 2 years full time as a Research Support Specialist at Stony Brook University for Dr. Daniel Klein’s longitudinal Temperament Study. She gained clinical experience working with teens and their families administering psychological interviews and gathering biological data, and had the opportunity to work on independent research projects and present findings at psychological conferences. Jessica is currently interested in working with struggling adolescents and young adult populations and has a passion for the fields of health psychology and positive psychology.
