Calling all ABP members. Want to help build the next generation of business psychologists?
One of our key aims is to build better and stronger direct relationships between business and academia and provide opportunities for the next generation of business psychologists – the current student population. We are proactively looking to build relationships between ABP members and our accredited universities in the same or approximate geographic location. The idea is that ABP members might then, for example, (1) offer themselves as external speakers, free and willing to speak to students at selected on campus events, (2) be willing to offer students work internships or placements, and (3) be able to engage with students in workplace based research projects, as part of the their programmes of study. These are just some ideas – the opportunities are endless.
Our accredited universities would absolutely love to hear from you and their students would find it so valuable to hear your insights and experiences of the everyday (if there is such a thing!) practice of business psychology. Just hearing from someone about what their work involves can really bring the subject to life for students taking their early steps on the road to becoming a business psychologist.
