KeaLin:  hey! I think your field may be too specialized for the general bee population to be able to give much advice. you might find an IOP forum where people will really know what they’re talking about! could you talk to the university(ies) you’re interested in and maybe they could give you advice? professors, admissions or career counselors? do you have any colleagues that could advise you? or maybe try a LinkedIn group, too.

I have a psych degree also + master’s and specialize in workforce/career development. I’ve heard IO ppl w Master’s complain that they entry/mid level positions are indeed very limited, as the field lends itself to serving as an expert consultant and those with lots of business, etc experience have the best odds, at least during the economic downturn. I don’t know if this is true in your area, just something I’ve heard. Maybe if they are experts in your area, you could work for them? Like as a junior member, project associate, etc. at a consulting firm for example? I would pretty much google/network the crap out of your field in your area and see who’s doing what out there and how you can connect with them. (lol)

i would think HR positions (say HR at a marketing firm?), but it sounds like you don’t like HR? If you don’t mind would you differentiate your interests/role/desired position from an HR role as you see it?
