Hello and WELCOME to PsychAssist. This week we have a very special guest article from Hannah Nnanna who is a research assistant. She is living proof of how one simple email to your old lecturer can lead to a career in research. This is her story of how much she learnt whilst being a research assistant. All the trials and tribulations where worth it for the end result! This is truly a special article.
For years I have heard many graduates say “you need to get an Assistant Psychologist role” and always view these posts as the be all and end all. I have been an Assistant Psychologist for years and granted it has been very rewarding and amazing at times. Nevertheless, no job is perfect so I thought I would write a post about the Worst Things about being an Assistant Psychologist that may help inform your decision when applying for these roles.
This is a post that has been bubbling for a while. I’ve asked every psychologist I know within my trust and other trusts about the common mistakes they see in applications from Support Workers to Assistant Psychologist. A lot of the mistakes outlined below can easily be rectified and hopefully land you that all important relevant job role. Do you recognise any of these common mistakes in your application?
