Monitor LIVE

monitorLIVE: Los Angeles Event

Introducing monitorLIVE — a new live event from APA that brings together psychology professionals and thought leaders to learn about and discuss issues that impact and elevate the discipline.

Join colleagues from the local LA-area on June 1 for an evening of networking, light fare, and a lively, unique moderated discussion with clinical psychologist and superhero enthusiast, Andrea Letamendi, PhD. Dr. Letamendi will offer her perspective on fusing your psychology background with your passion to open career opportunities you may never have considered — what we call "creating your side hustle."

Do have business cards that include your name, contact information, doctoral status and, if applicable, list your master's degree, research interests and Web site.

Don't ask directly for a job. Instead, say you are looking for opportunities or career advice and ask if they have any suggestions about people you should contact.

Do keep track of the people you meet, such as by creating a filing system for business cards and contact information.

Don't be over the top with your flattery of the other person. People know when they are being snowed.

Do dress professionally, make eye contact and use a firm handshake.

Don't be intimidated by a title or reputation.

Do send a thank-you note if someone has helped you. It's a turnoff when someone spends time answering your questions and then receives no acknowledgement.
