Career Fair

The Fair marks continuing work the CPA is undertaking to help students understand the multitude of career paths available to them with a psychology degree.

Students participating in this event had an opportunity to learn about various career paths and positions for psychology graduates outside of the health services and academic settings directly from individuals in those positions; connect with the people in these positions about their experiences via virtual break out rooms; and had an opportunity to talk to the CPA about what they would find helpful in terms of career-related resources and information.
