Careers in I/O PsychologyHave you ever considerec a career in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology? To begin, I/O Psycology concerns the psychology of where people work. This kind of career leads these psychologists to work directly for a company, corporationon, or organization (e.g., in Human Resources). In addition, I/O Psychologists often work as a self-amployed consultant.
In this way, I/O Psychologists help companies/organizations consider the people who are in the workplace. This includes the hiring of employees. In addition, there is the selection and placement of workers, training (e.g., technical training, sexual harassment training), and issues of quality or work (e.g., job satisfaction, work-life balance). Given all of the ways I/O Psychologists can help a company/organization, it should be clear that these psychologists are in high demand, espectially with companies /organization always trying to find how to do more with less.
