Exploring a career in Psychology

Year 12 students interested in a career in Psychology joined Careers Advisor Amelia Phillips and Dr Steve Zolezzi to find out about the profession.

Steve, a Registered Educational Psychologist and certified Sports Psychologist and Psychologist Supervisor, has worked as a school counselor for more than 25 years.

Steve is serving at IGS while Director of Counselling Services Joe Degeling is on Long Service Leave.

Steve explained that the field is wide, with many different types of psychology to explore, and he drew on students’ own interests in the interactive session.

One student showed a particular interest in the psychology of astronauts pre-flight, for example. 

Amelia sends a regular newsletter to IGS senior students about similar events and other careers opportunities.
