Sam Stephens's insight:

I really liked how this article actually gave interviews from experts in each of the fields. I especially liked how Dr. Mark Costanzo explained how he became interested in psychology, and what type of field he was most interested in and specialized. His advice to not choose a specialty right away made a lot of sense to me as well, being able to really discover which field is the right for you is incredibly important. Furthermore, I found it incredibly helpful that Dr. Costanzo explained that he is mainly a teacher and proffessor but he does consult every once in a while, and has been an expert witness, to me that sounds very interesting.

this article talks about a new career ( the forensic psychology career) which many have no idea about and explains what it is, how it works, and what actual forensic psychologist do. it is very interesting and i think that many others should read about this career since from my own personal perspective is an extremely rigorous career that requires higher level skills.

Sam Stephens's insight:

I found this article very interesting because I had no idea this field of psychology existed. I find it very interesting thinking about the advertising and how to create a commercial or add, etc. That will appeal to the public and draw them in. What about a certain add makes people more likely to choose that product? How effective are these techniques? The only thing I would have liked more is if the average salary of a media psychologist was included.

Sam Stephens's insight:

I found this article very helpful and revealing. The fact that it actually stated what the average salary for each job was, and that it said what level of education was required for the job. I always thought that in order to have a job in the psychology field I would have to go to school the extra years, and be even more in debt than I already may be in. However learning that some of the careers offer a position with only a masters degree offered a new hope for me. I look at it this way, I can find an entry level position after I recieve my masters, then if I really want to I can work to get my PhD while I am working. This way I will have a full time job, and be able to afford the schooling more readily.

this is a very helpful source of information due to the ignorance of some (but not all) when it comes to choosing a career regardless of which field or area i have chose. Needless to say this article discuses how much a psychologist would make depending on educational level and actual job being executed (i.e. forensic psychologists.)

Sam Stephens's insight:

I found it incredibly helpful that this article explained some of the pro's and con's of this field of psychology. I had never thought about it, but say a forensic psychologist may be called in at any time of the day or night. School psychologists however, have a predictable schedule and even get summers off! To me that is a big bonus, also the fact that the school psychologist still make upwards or 50,000 dollars a year is a big importance for me.

Sam Stephens's insight:

The coolest thing about this article was that it offered careers in the psychology field that I had no idea existed. Such as the engineering psychologist, I didn't know that there was actually a job that u just spent the time problem solving problems and just trying to improve what we already have. I admit I am a little confused on how that applies to psychology, but all the same it sounds very interesting to me. I would like to find out what sort of classes I could take to experience a little bit of that.
