Psychology.org is, above all, committed to orienting students and young professionals to the field as it exists today.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
Psychology.org has relaunched with an updated design, adding education and career portals, with each featuring an extensive collection of resources intended to support students and aspiring professionals.
Founded in 1997 by Dr. William Palya, now a Psychology Professor at Jacksonville State University, the site's primary draw has long been its extensive encyclopedia of premier people, publications and organizations in the psychology field; this encyclopedia, consisting of over 1,700 articles from hundreds of contributors, has single-handedly made the site a leader in online psychology resource for nearly twenty years. However, it is quickly becoming the online field guide aspiring and established psychologists turn to first when seeking advice.
The education portal explores the psychology degrees students earn at the various levels of post-secondary education, covering what students should expect to find in a quality program and then going into the careers to pursue post graduation.
The site has also added a searchable scholarship database, an example of the site's commitment to showing students how to take control of their school finances and to provide continued support throughout a student's education.
When asked about the site overhaul, Jen Ng, the managing editor responsible, said she felt it redefined the site's mission. "These additions embody a new mission at Psychology.org. We are now a site with something to say about every major phase in the psychologist's journey: how to excel in school, how to choose your focus and how to succeed when you become a certified medical professional."
The career portal, the other major feature added, provides an in-depth look at the universe of careers that make up the psychology field. With careers in the field proving to be increasingly lucrative ― Payscale reports that the median annual wages for most psychology professions are now well over $60,000 annually and growing ― it is no surprise the site has launched a portal that thoroughly examines the field's premier careers.
Onsite career profiles address the academic expectations of each position, the keys to landing a great job and the data that tells the real story of psychology's impact in the U.S. In addition, the site also conducts interviews with established professionals. Interviews released include discussions with an I/O psychologist, a clinical psychologist and a forensic psychologist, with new interviews routinely added. These experts answer a range of questions, giving students and recent graduates a great deal of insight into the day to day of the major psychology professions.
Such additions prove Psychology.org is committed to orienting students and young professionals to the field as it exists today. Add to that a site-wide facelift and you get a property quickly becoming the comprehensive source for psychology education and career advice.
Founded in 1997, Psychology.org offers a curated database of thousands of degree programs with customizable search options and guides to gaining admission to schools. Experts provide insight into the many subfields of psychology, along with descriptions of daily life as professionals. As a long-respected and newly revamped psychology resource, the site supports those entering the field at any level.
