This textbook truly focuses on helping students achieve their educational and career goals. The authors go beyond the typical career books by presenting a realistic, robust, and diverse picture of possible careers in psychology. Bringing a variety of careers to life, the professional spotlights and profiles of real psychologists represent the true diversity of careers in the field.
This textbook looks at all aspects of a psychology career from being an undergraduate major through the weighty choice of a career in neuropsychology and everything in between.
This textbook would work well as a textbook for a career planning course or for an individual who is contemplating entering this field.
A worthy addition to the growing literature on the keys to success for undergraduate psychology majors, the Helms and Rogersís text is likely to be one of those books that conscientious psychology students refer to again and again.
