I have a problem and I will be very glad to here your opinion. I study psychology and next year I am graduating. I dream about becoming a clinical psychologist, but the problem is that I am not sure that I will find a job because my country doesn't provide a future in the psychology field...I don't want to live and work away from home, but if I want to make my dream come true I have to. The other option is to give up and find a job that I won't like just to get paid for it. What should I do I don't want to leave my friends and family I love them too much but I have got to a point where I have to make a choice. I guess that it is true what my mother always used to say "Ther is never a full happiness"

Great idea, but you know that I ll need a lot of money to do that.And in my country a clinical psychologist has to work with a psychiatrist thats the law, and it is hard to find a psychiatrist willing to do that, but the idea sounds great.

There will be a point in our life that we need to make decisions. It may be difficult for you to decide if you are going to leave your country for a better future but I guess you have to. Anyway, it will be your choice I just hope that you will have a very good choice. Good luck!

If you can't find your dream job in your country then you have try in other places. We need to sacrifice something in order to achieve something, that's what we call life, you know.

Hi miryana, Well if you really want to pursue your dream then go for it. Surely along the way you will meet new friends and you can always communicate with your family at home. I strongly believe that what the mind conceives the body will achieve. If you will always think of a certain thing it will likely happen. So think positive and everything will fall into the right places. Good luck.

I think you should always do what your heart tells you and what you are good at. If there isn't much psychologists in your country then wouldn't that be a better demand on you, the only one? I think there's a bigger chance for you to make a break through. Good luck.

An excellent posting. I get the impression that you are a very hard working person, very serious about your field of study, and your career. I am very confident that you will do well and will be successful in your career, whether it will be in your own country or overseas. Best wishes to you. Just keep working, and success will be there soon !

Maybe you can open your own practice. Rent an office then advertize. You might be just surprised how many local people need your help.

If you try to get a job in that field there is a chance that you won't get a job, however if you don't try at all then you can be absolutely be certain that you won't be able to get a job at all. Sometimes we have to take a little bit of a risk in order to follow our dreams, and try to make sure that we will be happy in the future. We can never be sure of what the future will hold, but we can try our best to succeed and hope for a bit of luck along the way. Psychology degrees can get you jobs in many different fields, so there is no need to worry about being unemployed as I can assure you that this will not be the case.
