Abstract and Keywords
Broadly speaking, it is well-documented what society and employers want from college graduates. Due to the unavailability of data, however, it is less clear what the specific expectations are regarding bachelor’s degree recipients in psychology. After reviewing the available data about employer concerns and needs, I highlight the potential benefits of a career development course in psychology, centering on the existing empirical evidence that supports beneficial student outcomes. Specific recommendations are offered at the conclusion of chapter, focusing on national needs and better coordination of efforts so that best practices can be identified and evidence-based success stories can be shared with students and instructors.
