Jobs for a psych/sociology major?
I've always heard that you can't get a good job if you major in psychology or sociology, but that's what I'm interested in. Are there any jobs you know of that I could end up doing after college with one of these majors? Being a psychologist is probably not an option because of graduate school, though.

Whoever said that has NO idea what they're talking about.
--Go into business and work in: public relations, marketing, organizational research, resources management, industrial relations...
--Social worker, probation/parole officer, substance abuse counselor, mental health worker, child welfare worker, hospital administrator, nursing home administrator
--Go into politics: Lobbying specialist, campaign worker/organizer
--Work for the government: Like I said before, probation officer; also the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, the State Department of Correction, an FBI agent...
--Work for a news media corporation (research)
That was all for Sociology (though there are more.)
A lot of those overlap with Psychology...but some I found on Psychology websites:
--Hotel event management
--Employment agency counselor
--Junior market analyst
--Public opinion surveyor
--Crisis intervention counselor
...and that's all only with an undergraduate degree.Source(s): http://www.asanet.org/cs/root/leftnav/careers_and_... http://careerservices.rutgers.edu/Msociology.html http://www.asanet.org/page.ww?section=Careers+and+... http://www.utexas.edu/student/cec/careers/soc.pdf >>very good site http://www.uncwil.edu/stuaff/career/Majors/psychol...

Getting far in the fields of psychology or sociology is tough, if not impossible without graduate school. You could find a job, but it will most likely not be related to what you studied.
