Improving Employment Interviews

Filed under: Career and Employment,North America — Admin @ 12:24 pm

For over 50 years, psychologists criticized employment interviews on the grounds that they were subjective, subject to bias, and most important, poor predictors of future job performance. Hundreds of studies of the employment interview had led most industrial psychologists to conclude that they were nearly worthless and that interviews often did more harm than good. In the 1980′s, psychologists Gary Latham, PhD, Lise Saari, PhD, Elliot Pursell, PhD, and Michael Campion, PhD, suggested that interviews could be improved by providing structure, specifically by focusing the employment interview on questions that highlighted the interviewee’s ability to make good judgments in a variety of situations. Industrial psychologist Tom Janz, PhD, suggested another strategy for structuring employment interviews, by focusing on descriptions of past behavior rather than responses to hypothetical future situations.

Marky Lloyd’s Careers in Psychology Page

Filed under: Career and Employment,North America — Admin @ 11:47 am

Welcome to the Careers in Psychology page. My primary motive in developing this site is to help undergraduate students learn what they can do with a degree in psychology. (Graduate students may find information of interest in the section, “Selected Web Sites Containing Career and Graduate School Information of Interest to Psychology Majors.”) The resources on this page focus on: (1) careers in psychology at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level and (2) academic information about psychology at the bachelor’s and graduate levels. Much of this material was developed for use in Careers in Psychology, a one-credit, required course for psychology majors at Georgia Southern University (see an old course syllabus).

I retired from the Georgia Southern University Psychology Department in 2004, so the GSU-only portion of this web site has been retired also. However, you can check out the current faculty, curriculum, honors, and related information about the psychology program at Georgia Southern here at the Georgia Southern University Psychology Department web site.

A Brief Overview of the Psychology of Money (within the Context of Marriage and Divorce)

Filed under: Life Questions and Answers,North America — Admin @ 11:43 pm

For almost all the couples I provide divorce mediation services to, ongoing quarrels and differences over money are frequently cited as one of the primary reasons for their marriage problems. I also find that couples are even more uncomfortable talking about their differences with regard to money than almost any other issue, including sexual dissatisfaction. For these reasons, I think it is worth exploring the psychology of money, both within the context of relationships and marriage, and in the context of the process of divorce.

We inherit money behaviors and attitudes from our families and other influential people in our lives. According to social learning theory, spending behaviors can be viewed as learned behavior that is passed from generation to generation. Some of these behaviors may be influenced by religious teachings or cultural norms.

According to psychologists D’Astous and Forties, spending behaviors and their patterns have been conceived as existing along a continuum running between two poles. One pole represents the “holding on” behaviors, or a preoccupation with the acquisition and hoarding of money while the other pole represents the obsessive spending of money:
