Internships in Industrial/Organizational Psychology (or Human Resources)

A successful internship in I/O psychology or HR is a valuable experience in preparing you to pursue a career or graduate education in I/O psychology. By working directly with an organization in your community, state, or across the country, you gain first-hand experience that can help you better translate the theoretical and conceptual material you learn about in your classes into more practical skills and applications.

Internships represent an opportunity to network with other professionals in the field, clarify what working as an I/O practitioner entails, and most critically, to learn by doing.
