There are a number of works and responsibilities on the shoulders of a psychologist. Though these tasks vary as per their profile or the area of the interest but we can describe them here so that you get the clear picture of what you are going to do as a psychologist:

1. They have to meet their clients and have the important interactions with them. It is during these interactions they understand the person's requirements and thus these are very important and have to be done with great focus and care.

2. The psychologists work with a number of educational institutions and help the students and even the teachers and the parents in deciding the career of the students with the counseling sessions. These sessions are extremely valuable for the students as they clear all the confusions and help them to decide their career. CareerGuide is one such example where the psychologists are helping the students as counselors and assisting them in reaching their dreams.

3. The psychologists are also involved i their research if they are connected with the academic and research world. They develop theories and also the practical aspects of psychology and work on the research and development of it. They are often keen to learn new things and hence innovate the different models so that they can provide the valuable contribution to this world.

4. The psychologists these days are often get hired by the corporate houses sometimes temporary or sometimes on the permanent basis in order to counsel the employees. In the recent few years the employers have started paying a lot of attention to the work satisfaction of the employees and want to ensure that the stress levels in the minds of employees are not high.

Thus the role of psycologists gets widen.
