Hello! I am a developmental psychology third year undergrad student at UMN Twin Cities. I am considering pursuing a career in mental health care, potentially at a PhD level, and I was wondering if I could ask some psychologists (PhD in clinical or counseling, or developmental) about their educational and professional experiences. I am curious about what your education and day-to-day work is like. Please reply to this post with any thoughts about your degree and professional lives! I would really appreciate it :)
Some specific questions:
What did you like about your PhD program? What did you NOT like?
What do you like about your current or past jobs? What did you NOT like?
Do you have any advice for somebody considering entering your field?
Thank you so much!!
