After researching the psychology specialties listed below using the Occupational Outlook Handbook at http://www.bls.gov/oco/ , APA.org , and any other credible resources you may find online at other sites, gather the facts needed to write a pair (2) of thorough yet succinct paragraphs summarizing the job responsibilities, work locations,salaries, education, national licensing requirements and career outlook for each career and its percentage growth expected. After each of the 12 paragraph pairs, note whether that specialty in psychology would be of interest to you as a career option in the future and explain why or why not. Once the 12 sets of paragraphs and interest or non-interest explanations are complete, compile them into a single APA formatted paper using the career titles as separating headings within the paper body. E nd the paper two paragraphs comparing and contrasting the way in which information about the 12 careers is communicated in the Occupational Outlook Handbook vs. how it is communicated on the APA.org website (i.e. which format was the easiest to navigate and understand; which had the most news you could use [i.e. info useful to someone accessing it to make a career decision).
