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!

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 ...

Re: Hello: Introduce yourself here!

Just realised... I also should have mentioned that I was very lucky to have a placement year as part of my degree, where I shadowed a clinical psychologist in CAMHS. Not sure how to edit my previous post, the option doesn't seem to be there :oops:

Re: Hello: Introduce yourself here!

Hi all :) I've been browsing through the forum off and on and finally decided to join after clicking through heaps of topics all at once! I'm 23 years old, and have just graduated from my BSc Psychology. I'm currently looking for experience to eventually get onto a clinical doctorate (I have a job i...
