    CAREER NEWSLETTER The Spring 2015 semester was fi lled with amazing opportunities for our students and alumni! We stayed connected through one-on-one career advising, on and off campus activities, sharing over 100 job and internship postings, and enhancing our up-to-the-minute career website page. (http://www. baruch.cuny.edu/wsas/graduatecareers/). We sponsored/cosponsored a total of seven events, worked with student club leaders, and had 200 plus contacts with students and alumni.

    CAREER HIGHLIGHTS On March 6, 2015, a group of Industrial/Organizational Psychology graduate students visited the global business psychology consulting fi rm YSC in midtown. They met with YSC professionals and heard stories about their journeys in the world of consulting. Students also participated in a fun and thought provoking exercise utilizing YSC’s psychometric survey, the FIRO-B.

    “ The experience was one of the most rewarding days in the program. Going to YSC was an enlightening experience, and proved to me that the MS in I/O Psychology is a dynamic degree that can be used across industries to help businesses thrive.” - ALLISON WOLFE,


    “ I really appreciated the real-life experience that YSC professionals brought to us. The FIRO-B (psychometric survey) approach in the interactive workshop we participated in, actually led me to study and apply it in my ongoing Psychology of Small Groups and Teams course-project at Baruch.”

    “ The interview process with Retensa was in-depth; they test for both technical and behavioral skills. What I like most about my internship is the opportunity to get hands- on experience in OD/HR consulting. The focus of the consulting projects is on survey design, employee turnover analytics and trainings. I have also learned that people who intern with Retensa have been hired at organizations such as Google and JPMorgan, which sounds like it’s a great place to learn and get experience!”
