Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. This week, we have a slightly different article for all you Psychology Graduates. We believe the best strategy in finding your perfect job in 2019 is to not solely rely on NHS jobs. We have found in our experience (and the experience of many) that Indeed gives Psychology Graduates way more opportunities than NHS jobs. This is why we thought to write this article, to give graduates some handy tips in getting ahead of the crowd before these competitive jobs adverts close. Within this article, we discuss why we think that Indeed is better than NHS jobs.
Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. This week’s guest article is from Dr Amber Elliot who is a Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist who took the brave steps of stepping out on her own to develop her social enterprise. Amber explains how she worked in a Looked After & Adopted CAMHS service which ultimately led her down the path of starting her own service. This is her journey of how she started The Child Psychology Service (TCPS).
Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. Lately we’ve received a lot of questions from recent Psych Grads who are new to the field asking about the difference between NHS experience and Private Experience (we did write an article about this which was called NHS Experience VS Private Experience). They appear to have this pre-conceived misconception that working for private companies is bad and the only way to progress is through solely working in the NHS. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE which gave us the inspiration for this article. Within this post, we will discuss the benefits of working within the private sector and how Psych Grads can flourish in these types of environments.
