APA psycCareers LIVE presentations with tips for your job search

APA psycCareers LIVE is a job fair hosted each year within the exhibit hall at APA’s Annual Convention. As part of this event, career experts share their expertise via group presentations as well as one-on-one career coaching sessions onsite. They have graciously agreed to share their presentation slides, handouts and other related resources so that attendees as well as those who could not attend can refer to this information during and well after the event.
