Could you provide insights into the job prospects for my daughter doing bachelors with a Psychology major seeking to pursue a master's abroad? Will this choice prove valuable in terms of job prospects? Could you also address any challenges non-locals might face when seeking employment in this field in a foreign country? Additionally, would it be advisable to consider taking additional courses to enhance settlement opportunities in a foreign country?

Ans: Hello Shuja,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am glad to know that your daughter is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree majoring in Psychology, and then wishes to pursue her Master’s abroad. To answer your question first, I would like to tell you that a plethora of employment opportunities both, locally as well as internationally can be provided by a Psychology major particularly when combined with a master's degree. You would be happy to know that your daughter could pursue a profession in counseling, research, human resources, or perhaps academia, with a Master’s degree. Remember, the competitiveness of the labor market, differs by region and individual professional path within the field of Psychology, and for that reason, I would recommend that your daughter builds strong networks, engages in internship opportunities, as well as acquires hands-on experience during the course of her study, as doing so will enhance her chances to a great extent.

Bear in mind that finding work in a different country can be difficult owing to work visa requirements, cultural barriers, as well as local certification or licensing procedures. I would like to tell you that applicants from outside the country may face challenges due to language barriers or a lack of knowledge of the local work culture. Your daughter, in order to boost her employability and facilitate her settlement, could pursue further education or credentials in the language, legal system, or specific fields of psychology in the country of her choosing. In addition, I would recommend that she takes up volunteering work, internships, or part-time employment in the field of psychology in her preferred country as this may provide insightful information and useful connections. Lastly, to facilitate a seamless transition and enhanced employment opportunities, your daughter should conduct an extensive study on the particular needs and possibilities of the target foreign nation.
