Psychology Career Information

On the web or in the Library, ways to explore psychology careers.

MSU Libraries' Career Collection

The Careers Collection is located in the Main Library on 1-East, just south of the East Wing elevators. The Careers Collection contains:

  • Current books and pamphlets describing career opportunities in various fields
  • Job hunting/interviewing guides
  • Resume/cover letter-writing guides

Because of the high demand for items in the Careers Collection, materials circulate for only 3 days.

To locate MSU Libraries’ books on a particular career, include the words “vocational guidance” in a keyword search of the Library Catalog. For example, a keyword search of psychology and vocational guidance turned up the following:
