** Inside The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist’s Toolkit: Job Analysis

Many of us have received care from a nurse, perhaps while at school or at a hospital. If you have, chances are, you had a positive experience. Americans rate nurses as some of the most honest and ethical professionals! But, someone had to make sure to get the right person for that job. How did they do it? How did they make sure that the person helping you has what it takes to be a good nurse? What does it even mean to be a good nurse?

Job analysis is an essential activity performed by I-O psychologists. During a job analysis, an I-O psychologist investigates what activities are performed as part of a given job and what qualities—commonly referred to as knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs)—an employee needs to be able to do the job well.

** Master’s Careers In Psychology

For most careers, providing professional services using psychological knowledge requires a doctoral degree in psychology, and these careers are often called professional or health service psychology. However, psychology careers for individuals holding master’s degrees are available in multiple occupational settings and in fields across the discipline. The demand for jobs at this level of training is reflected in the growth of master’s psychology degrees — from slightly below 18,000 in 2003 to nearly 28,000 in 2013. Similarly, the National Science Foundation reports growth during the past decade in research-focused psychology master’s degrees: approximately 15,000 in 2003 and 22,000 in 2011.​
