The most interesting things you can do while working as a Psychologist are creating your own style of handling your patients. Go beyond the bookish knowledge and observe the world with your own eyes and if interested then get into research. The theories might not suit our demographic and social structure so implement with discretion. 

I don't want to sound like a book so that is the reason I am suggesting you practical things. Join an NGO which is working with special children/ visit an Old age home or simply provide career counselling to the students and have personal as well as professional satisfaction. And yes don't forget to interact with your peers for the review or discussions.
