Building Your Career in Psychology by Marie S. Hammond; Peggy Brady-Amoon"In Building Your Career in Psychology, Drs. Marie Hammond and Peggy Brady-Amoon offer undergraduate psychology majors as well as those considering psychology a wide range of useful and important information about the field and how to construct a personalized professional career path. Building Your Career in Psychology is a useful and important text for today''s undergraduates who want to know what future career and life options become available to them when they choose to major in psychology. While focusing on the field of psychology, the process of exploring one''s interests and steps to consider when making decisions, setting SMART goals, and getting the most out of one''s college experience is relevant to all undergraduates." V. Scott H. Solberg, Ph.D, Professor, Boston University "Hammond and Brady-Amoon provide readers with a theory- and research-based roadmap for reaching your goals in psychology. By offering practical advice, concrete activities, and clear suggestions, this book is a soup to nuts companion for students looking to explore both traditional and non-traditional pathways in psychology." Thomson J. Ling, Ph.D, Associate Dean, Caldwell University "Building Your Career in Psychology is a unique and comprehensive resource for psychology students who want to plan and manage their careers, understand career decision-making, and understand career paths in psychology. This book is an equally important resource for faculty researchers, practitioners, mentors, and teachers who are interested in equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as those who need a roadmap of concrete, proactive actions and processes to support ethnic and minority students to reach their career goals. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have been very successful at increasing the number of African American students in STEM and Psychology to persist and graduate from college, graduate school, and enter successful careers. The authors outline specific strategies that have made these HBCUs successful. These include teaching students the unwritten rules for success, and creating a welcoming, educational learning environment for academic excellence and experiential learning. Especially important are the chapters that focus on understanding the importance of personal and professional relationships for developing supportive networks and a positive sense of community. This book addresses critical topics that will provide support to students of color and increase representation and participation of these students in psychology as a field of study." Ruth L. Greene, Ed.D., O''Herron Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Johnson C. Smith University "As someone who taught an introduction to counseling course for many years, this is exactly the book I have been needing! It will help me in my efforts to guide students through the process of exploring the helping professions and charting their future course." Kimberly Howard, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Boston University "A well-resourced gem of a book for anyone interested in building a career in psychology who also aims for work-life balance. Includes advice and exercises that are practical, student-centric, and inspiring, with special consideration of values, interests, personalities, relationships, and skills." Susan A. Nolan, Ph.D., Professor, Seton Hall University "How can a wise psychology student best plan ahead, to succeed in a competitive graduate school and career in psychology or a related field? In this new volume, Professors Marie Hammond and Margaret (Peggy) Brady-Amoon offer their expert "insider" advice that can be so invaluable to career-oriented students. This volume includes a trove of useful exercises, practical websites, important resources, and informative ''side-bars'' - all based on the large but elusive literature on career-preparation. This volume clearly gives a valuable ''edge'' to psychology students planning ahead for a successful career. " Harold Takooshian, Ph.D., Professor, Fordham University "This is an incredibly useful book for psychology majors. Psychology is one of the most popular majors in college today, but most students don''t understand what the pathways and options to a career in psychology. More than helping students understand what those pathways are, though, this book helps students understand how to make a decision to go into psychology, or any career." Nadya A. Fouad, Ph.D., Professor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
