It is one of the most sort after question that people ask before going for Psychology.

As you think that there might be a saturation point in a Psychology Career in next few years but I would like to clear this notion that things will be exactly the opposite of what you think.

There is a dearth of Good, Experience and Qualifies Psychology Professional in India. If anyone who has the above mentioned things will be hired soon and that too very easily.

In fact in India there will be boom in this profession after some years and you will see Psychologist in ever other field. There are also very few institutes offering Psychology as well but as the demand for the subject increases all these things will be encountered as well.
I would simply suggest you to be clear what you want to do and work towards it. Have a clear goal and required skill set you will never fail in life.

If you are qualified and trained and have the right skill set you will not face a problem in getting a job in fact you will easily get a job no matter how much crises their might be.
Hence you need not worry and work towards your goal.
Be Clear what you want to do first and do not worry about how much salary you'll get etc..... or try to get into a fancy career just because people say so.

Think what you want to do and choose a right career for self. A Right Career for oneself is the one that matches ones Aptitude and Interest.

Many a times we take up careers simply by seeing or hearing what others say but it may land you up in a completely wrong place something that you do not enjoy.

My suggestion to you will be to act sensibly and take a right decision.

You can also take the CareerGuide.com and Take Psychometric Career Assessment Test that will help you choose a right career for yourself.

Best Wishes!

Hello


Psychologist

Thank you for choosing Meracareerguide and writing to us. Psychology is a well established science field and there is definitely a lot of scope in this field. This well says Psychology will definitely give a promising career without any saturation. This is also a research intensive course that explains there will be continuous research happening offering new scope of job opportunities. Moreover Psychology is a vast behavioural science offering many branches. To be honest a decade now, Psychology was only associated to reading minds and analysing behaviour. But at the present years it is much more evolved than that.

To give a few examples, Psychology is applied in Organisational Management subjects.
These days psychology is applied in organisational management subjects like the Organisational behaviour, Organisational change management, Women psychology, Social psychology, Work psychology, Industrial psychology and Organisational psychology. Each of these above mentioned fields are recently evolved in the past ten years and they are predominantly in use in research at organisational management level and also at academic level. They get involved in understanding employee behaviour within organisations. It explores motivation, team work, de-motivation, reward and other analytics and understands what makes success and failures of employees at work. Had these field have not evolved then there might be saturation but as said earlier due to continuous research by scientists and researchers, the field gets continuously evolve and certainly there is no saturation.

Psychology is applied in Marketing. This is another good example, in the earlier years when Psychology subject was initially studied there was no association with marketing. But in the past ten years, this subject has brought a link to marketing known as Consumer psychology or Consumer marketing. This subject aims to understand why are certain products selling well in market, and understand what parameters make the product success in market. It goes in depth to understand whether it is brand name, color of the product, advertisements, usage of celebrity, texture of the product, smell of the product or price of the product that attracts customers and get to make profits in the market. As said, this is relatively a new concept adapted in marketing area.

Like wise Psychology is also combined with Sociology known as Social psychology. This aims to understand how people socially interact and behave in a group or within a society. Psychology is a revolutionary subject that involves continuous research and therefore this field will never get to see saturation. Hope this helps. Good luck.
