SUCCESS STORY: Rakim Reid

Major: Psychology
Graduation Date: May 2011
Placement:      
Research Assistant, with Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of
Nursing.

How did you find your internship?  
Through the PSYUGRAD. They list any fellowships, internships, or job
opportunities related to psychology or social sciences on there. 
How the Career Center helped you along the way? 
Ms. Waterman was instrumental in helping me prepare my resume for this
position. She edited my resume and gave valuable advice about what to include
and exclude in the document.
Any insights that you have for current students?
Use every
school resource that you have available. I asked professors in the department
about opportunities and kept checking PSYUGRAD, my major’s announcement portal,
for information. Check regularly with those who may know contacts in other
departments as well. Although a position may appear to be within your field of
interest, it may related to it somehow. Know as much as you can about the
position beforehand. This includes the superiors. For instance, if you apply for
a research position, learn about the lead investigator. Read their Institutional
Review Board (IRB) submission. Going the extra mile pays off in spades.
