Have you thought of upgrading your Society membership?
Or you may have graduated in psychology this summer. If you have, please accept my congratulations. I hope you found the subject as fascinating to study as I did.
If you achieved a 2:2 or better (or if you have completed a Society-accredited conversion course) then you are eligible for Graduate membership of the Society.
As a Graduate member you can use the letters MBPsS after your name, signalling your achievement and your commitment to high professional standards.
Graduate membership also enables you to join the member networks of the Society, providing valuable opportunities for networking and professional development.
If you are thinking of a career in psychology you will find the resources on the Careers, Education and Training pages on the Society website helpful. You may be particularly interested in the interactive tools there. They will help you find out more about the different areas of psychology you might work in, including training routes, pay and work experience.
In fact these pages may be useful to all Society members – there are many useful links on continuing professional development, for instance.
If you are a new graduate you may be particularly interested in a Society event designed later this year. Psychology4Graduates 2015 takes place in London on 2 December.
The day will highlight the career opportunities available to psychology graduates. You will have the chance to hear prominent psychologists discuss their careers and give insights in to what postgraduate study in the subject involves. There will be valuable networking opportunities too.
But whatever stage you are at in your career as a psychologist, there is a grade of Society membership to suit your needs.
