Employment Status by Subfield for Doctorate Recipients in Psychology: 2001
Social/personality and industrial/organizational psychologists had the highest proportion employed full time due most likely to their location in academic or business settings where this is the norm. Part-time employment claimed relatively few new doctorates. The strong presence of new doctorates in cognitive/experimental fields in post-doctorates can be explained by the importance of this experience to their careers and employment as psychologists. Post-doctorates in the health service provider subfields may likely be gaining additional experience prior to licensure.
