Hey Dear,


It is good to see your love for the subject you are in i.e. Psychology. I am amazed yet happy to see that you are interested to do an internship in the Graduation itself and that you are willing to explore for options that are in front of you.


There are many places that you can do your internship. Many organizations want volunteers who can work for them for free.

Remember that you will not be paid for your internship and you can only work there as a volunteer. Even the work you will do there will be regular basic work and no one will give you there cases or any important stuff to handle as you are only a trainee.

But it will definitely give you a good learning exposure and you will at least by observing can also learn a lot.

See many places like Non Government Organizations or your NGO's that you call them or hospitals or small clinics or even some organizations can take you as an internship. You can make a choice and see exactly what exposure you want for yourself and do an internship in that area.

it will completely be your call and also you are free to decide at what ever place you want to work any place will be more than happy to have you as you will be working there for free.

So look for some good options and see where you fit in the best.

Best Wishes!

Hello there,

Thank you very much for choosing CareerGuide and writing to us. I appreciate you are looking out for opportunities to put your learning into practice before graduation. I could help you out better, had I known what branch of Psychology you are in. However I shall base out my answer as students in India most commonly specialize in Counselling psychology, educational psychology, child psychology, consumer psychology, health psychology, adult psychology and industrial/ organizational psychology. I shall do a little briefing about the types of roles and sectors you are likely to get into/ approach for internship or full time career opportunities.

 
Counselling psychology:
This itself is a vast branch with a variety of career options. Students taking this elective in their degree course have options like family, rehabilitation, adult, child, career and education counselling.
For example, students who have interest in family counselling can practice under licensed or registered family counsellors for 3-6 months, also practice as a rehab counsellor at a rehabilitation centre, practice adult and child counselling under the respected licensed counsellors, practice as an educational psychologist at a school to understand students learning behaviour, and counsel students to overcome their learning difficulties. If you study career counselling, you can understand students personality and suggest career routes suited to their personality. You will need to take up training under a registered career counsellor.
 
Educational psychology: If you specialize in this, you can do internships at schools for a period of 3-6 months. You will evaluate learning needs of school children during this period and suggest possible measures to facilitate learning.
 
Child psychology: You can practice under a child counsellor at hospitals or private labs, where you will need to help children overcome their mental challenges. You will deal only with clients who are children.
 
Consumer psychology: You can do internships at marketing divisions of any company in India. Particularly, marketing analyst position will suit you. You will study the market and potential customers buying behavior.
 
Health psychology: You can do internships at any healthcare or NGO's that supports positive health practices like yoga, stress management and many other measures.
 
Adult psychology: You can work at private hospitals at their psychologist division to counsel adults overcome their addictive behavior or personality issues. Sometimes it is requires to be clinically involved too.
 
Industrial/organisational psychology: You can do internships at organisations as a HR intern. But frankly speaking you will not anything much to do with organisational psychology. at the most, you can conduct employee satisfaction surveys and poll as a HR intern. India is still booming in this area and it has got a lot more to develop and give opportunities for entry level or internship candidates.
 
Hope this helps. All the best.
