I always look forward to Pepperdine University’s Career Fair at the West Los Angeles campus because it brings hope and provides possible rewards to all of the hard work that goes into the planning, set up and participation of the events. This year was also wonderful. I attended a couple of workshops that gave insight to finding ways to collaborate one’s hobbies, passions and skills into the field of psychology. At this stage in my education I have finished practicum and search for possible internships and jobs, therefore, I explored the Career Fair room in 203. There were a few sites looking to hire interns from the MFT and PsyD programs as well as plenty of volunteer opportunities at most of the sites. I had wonderful conversations with representatives from SFV CAMFT, The Help Center, Otis College, as well as many others and have been contacted by a few of the sites looking for employees, trainees and interns. There were not a lot of sites that advertised paid internships and only one private practice that offered low pay. This year’s Career Fair was also very small in comparison to the past couple of years.
