As one of our graduate students who attended said:
I had the opportunity to talk to professionals who helped me understand the realities of their work, the structure of their companies and the critical role of communication in their organizations. It was great information that can be used when looking for an internship or a full time position, and a real learning experience attended by curious students, great facilitators and insightful alumnae.

METRO CAREER DAY, MARCH 1, 2019
The Metropolitan New York Association for Applied Psychology (METRO) is a not-for-profit professional association, and the oldest and largest for applied psychologists in the U.S. Each year METRO hosts a Career Day for those in the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology with panels representing internal practitioners and academics, external practitioners, and senior and young professionals.
"METRO Career Day was very informative in that we got to hear from professionals already established in the field, as well as professionals that were just starting. What I got out of career day was that I/O students can distinguish themselves from MBA students by demonstrating their research and analytical skills, which can be our challenge as well, since companies want to know the bottom line - how much it is going to cost. So if we learn analytical tools like R and use our expertise in research, we can demonstrate to a company how they can save or make money by taking into consideration human capital."
-Maria Brandao, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ‘21
"Career days like this are a great networking opportunity - I got to meet students from other colleges and ask questions to company reps in a less formal setting. I also appreciated the opportunity to learn about the selection process at boutique and large consulting firms, and clarifying consultant-role responsibilities and expectations. My main takeaways were: -using LinkedIn to network through 2nd and 3rd level connections – the value of I/O Psychology degree vs MBA and how to communicate our competitive advantage at interviews – and finding your niche through trying new things, not necessarily study/work related."
