I have a bachelors degree in ABA and I’m working on a masters in other psychology. But what else can I apply my bachelors of science to? Because it doesn’t earn me anything in ABA anymore and I don’t want to do ABA now anyway. I love the ABA concept but I don’t like the way it is used and I’d love to apply it to another place. #jobsearch #advice #careerchange #education #healthcare #careeradvice #ABA #psychology #bachelors

Hi Samatha, Well, I can understand where you are coming from; I also studied ABA in the past and practiced as a behavioral analyst technician in the space. As you know, in ABA, you get a vast knowledge of the learning theory. So depending on where you see yourself and find the most fulfilling is key. Navigate further into healthcare, special needs teaching, even in government sectors, as an FBI analyst. Also, if you are still in school, reach out to your advisor, and I'm sure they can help you source some significant additional roles where you can still take the concepts you learn and know and apply them in a different space, along with learning even more. Best wishes moving forward!

I graduated with my masters in psychology in 2018 and still can’t get a job! I have applied for close to 4,000 jobs but for whatever reason I don’t get called in for interviews. I thought it was my resume but I had it professionally done and people say it looks good. I have been reduced to applying for cashier or meaningless jobs because NOBODY will call. I even relocated from Florida to Colorado to give myself more options. I have done just about everything so I have a variety of experience. What’s going on??? I don’t have a recent criminal record (20 years ago). I’m very disappointed in this society. Any suggestions?

Hello Jobcase family, I'm reaching out because of course I need different perspectives on this.... What are some key contributors to help a individual who is in the midst of changing careers? For instance, an individual has 10+ years in a manufacturing setting, but wants to transition to a hospital setting after their completion of an advanced degree. What advise could you offer that individual? Keep in mind the person tries for internships as well as entry level roles, but disregarded and considered overqualified. I understand in today's workforce there is alot of factors to consider, but I just want to get some helpful ideas in general. Most appreciated in advance!

After graduating from college with a bachelor's in psychology, I went to graduate school for social work. However, I quickly realized it wasn't for me, and I left the program and instantly went into search for a job. I'd sent out like 3-5 applications a day, and I did this for like 2 months. I very rarely got calls, and when I did, most of the jobs were not desirable, because it was an hour and an hour and a half away. Needless to say, it was a very depressing two months.

However, in the third month, I landed an interview, and ended up getting the job. It was for an established company that felt like a start up (meaning they were very relaxed). It paid 42k, with amazing benefits and plethora of time off and sick days. It was a steal.

There's hope. It just takes time. It also takes a good, personable interview. Psychology is an amazing degree, and it makes you very versatile. If any of you have an interview, and would like any collaborative help on how to prepare, feel free to reach out! Or ask a question here, and I'll get back to you. :)

The skills that I have acquired through work experience and receiving my degree, B.S, in Psychology(The Dean's List), allows me to be able to not limit the jobs that I'm applying for. The reason for this post is that I know that if given the opportunity, as done with past employment, I will advance and be very successful working with a company expecting positive growth results,
