Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1.) Finally got another job interview for an amazing GMHW post! 2.) Really excited but unfortunately it's the day before bf and I can move into our new place, which makes it just that little bit more difficult to get to the interview since I am currently living in a different county. 3.) I adore my ...

Re: BPS membership

Thank you so much Mark! I received a letter about upgrading last week but I wasn't sure if it would cost--I had been meaning to look into it, perhaps I should have done so before posting here :oops: In that case, I'll upgrade for free, and hopefully will be in a position to pay by the time I need to...

Re: BPS membership

I'm wondering about this too--trying to figure out if it's worth it or not as a recent graduate... Quite excited at the chance to get extra letters after my name, but I'm not sure about the £60 fee--at least not until I get a full-time, well-paid job! But I don't know if having membership will make ...

4. I wish I was a still student As opposed to one that moves? Sorry, really couldn't resist that!! Said very much with tongue in cheek, as it's a typo we could all make :wink: Whoops! Although thinking about it, I am pretty tired of moving all my stuff back and forth... :lol: I hope you enjoy your ...

Re: HELP needed! Advice from current/previous Psychology stu

I agree with the others, the whole basis of a conversion course (and even the first year of a standard psychology BSc.) are based entirely around bringing all up to speed, so try not to get too worried! :) Reading around the topic as others have said is a good idea just for the basics. You may find ...

Re: NHS Supporting Information Section Question

Hi all, I, too, am really struggling with applications for AP and similar-level roles. I've had one interview but have been rejected from all applications bar four (still waiting on those). I feel like I have good experience for someone who's recently graduated--a first in my degree, almost 3 years'...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

3. Also to get an interview for an AP post is success in itself (isn't it?). 4. I really hope I can find a job that I enjoy doing. I just wish someone would give me a chance! You're really not alone! Good luck with your job search, it's awful to feel like you're not getting a chance when you know y...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Just re-applied for a re-advertised job that I was previously unsuccessful for... hopefully not a waste of time, they did tell me they'd welcome another application in the future but could make for an awkward interview :oops: 2. Going to meet my boyfriend's nanna and stay at her house for a few d...

Re: is there jobs in neuropsychology?

I'm not an expert (I've only just graduated from my undergraduate myself) but there certainly are jobs! Although they are competitive of course, like many psychology and other specialist jobs, but it must be possible to get them! Neuropsych jobs can be both research and clinical, look into both of t...

Re: DClinPsy, AP, PWP in London

Thanks Geishawife :) I know it's not a prerequisite for the doctorate--I guess I just haven't had a lot of luck finding anything lately!

Geishawife wrote: YES! Some courses make it very clear you HAVE to have experience from paid employment. You are very, very unlikely to get on to the doctorate with only voluntary experience.
This is alarming me since most AP posts (in my area at least) are unpaid! :cry:

Re: Why don't more people apply for private sector AP posts?

I'm looking for work (I've just graduated with a first). I have some experience--almost 3 years as a youth worker for adults with learning disabilities, and one year as part of my degree working in CAMHS. I'm finding it really hard to get work though. Most AP posts with the NHS in Surrey seem to be ...
