A longitudinal survey of 138 baccalaureate holders in psychology suggested that they fare better in the job market than many believe and than previous studies indicate. The occupational status of a group of bachelor's level graduates was surveyed after a period of years following their graduation. Given time, work experience, and additional education, most in the group had become upwardly mobile in a wide variety of human service and other occupations. It is argued that career development processes continue to operate beyond the college years and that a longitudinal survey method may provide a more valid estimate of the vocational potentials of the bachelor's degree in psychology.
