Abstract

In an increasingly difficult academic job market, graduates of traditional experimental psychology programs must begin to consider careers in nonacademic settings. Since many of these postgraduates have little information about career possibilities in applied fields and have had few opportunities for contact with successful applied psychologists, the prospect of a nonacademic job is frequently viewed with frustration or apprehension. An approach to this problem is described that has informed experimental psychology students about specific jobs in applied psychology and provided a significant means of communication among academic-based psychologists, students, and psychologists employed in nonacademic settings.
