If you are still debating which career in psychology is right for you, then you might want to spend some time considering the growing field of industrial-organizational psychology (or I-O psychology). Industrial-organizational psychologists focus on issues related to workplace behavior and performance. These professionals typically hold at least a master's degree in industrial-organizational psychology or experimental psychology.

I-O psychologists work in a wide variety of settings that include universities, research facilities, private businesses and government agencies. Some psychologists in this field are self-employed or work on a consultation basis.

A few of the issues that industrial-organizational psychologists may tackle include:

  • Worker productivity
  • Human and computer interaction
  • Employee training and assessment
  • Training program development

Learn more about the field of I-O psychology as well as what it takes to become an industrial-organizational psychologist.
