Hey guys, I've done my B.A in Political Science & Psychology and just completed my M.A in Industrial & Organizational Psychology...
Been working as an HR Recruiter before I completed my masters.
Now that I have completed my Masters in I/O Psychology, where do I go from here?
P.S. I'm thinking of an alternate option to Recruitment as I doubt it has good future growth in life, job position wise and financially as well. I could be wrong.
What career options do I have in the HR field or any other for that matter keeping in mind my qualifications?


Based on your interest and strength you should make career choice otherwise after certain point of time you may loose interest in the job/subject that you opted for some reason ,which eventually will result in frequent job changes or subject change. Hence if you choose career as per your interest and strength , you will enjoy working that particular job or doing that particular subject and that will help you for career enhancement.

Also remember every field has its own growth prospects so please don't underestimate recruitment or any other filed. And never choose any career because of money. There are numbers of example that not every people is master of everything. So if somebody excels in any subject , some other may not and vice versa. So choose career as per your interest and strength , work hard with dedication and then will follow you automatically.

Now would like to know why have you done MA in Industrial Psychology? Any Reason? And what do you like most ? Your strength areas?

I just want to know about your interest and strength areas and then accordingly would suggest how you should proceed. If you are confused about your interest and strength , then dont worry I will help you in knowing what you are and what you meant for.

You may go through my blog from my website Sujan Roy, which will guide you at some extent.

You may also directly write to me.

Thanks for the quick reply Mr. Roy. To be very honest with you, my family has been going rough a rough patch, so I have to focus on the money perspective, I don't have an option. Yet, I don't want to drift away completely from what I was doing. I want to stay in the HR zone.

Now the reason why I took up Industrial & Organizational Psychology is because I've always wanted to get into HR and with almost every individual doing an MBA in HR, I wanted to take a different approach.

Psychology is my interest and being a peoples person, problem solving are my strengths. I am completely approachable, with excellent social interaction skills and I do believe that is the most important requirement in HR.

Besides different positions in HR, I've also looked up for the position of an Industrial Counselor, but only a few companies have the position of an Industrial Counselor.

So I'm guessing HR and counseling, these two sectors and their sub-sectors is whats probably confusing me.
