    Going into my 3rd year and starting to think what the hell am i gonna do when i graduate? I want to eventually become a clinical psychologist and i realised after uni its not gonna be as simple as walking straight into a assistant psychologist post. So just wondering what you graduates are actually doing, what experience have you got/are getting and when did you start looking for jobs?

    Big woop for research PhD and the world of academia. A lot of people have signed up for a masters or a year out rather than searching for jobs as all the hype over the recession has scared them away from even looking. The only person I know who has gone off to get experience has gone full time on the social work placement she already had during her degree.

    I am starting my MRes Psychology course this sept after graduating from my BSc Psych in Sept 08. I guess it all depends what area of psychology you ultimately aim to work in!

    I graduated in June 2008 with a degree in psychology. Since graduating I started off doing agency support work (mainly LD), I then got a 2 month RA contract before becoming and NHS support worker in adult MH which I did from November 2008-June 2009. In June this year I started a job as an AP in LD. I had done some AP volunteering whilst being a support worker.
