On the Jobs Front
A running compilation of
some Iowa position openings that
may be of interest to our Psychology majors
I have been sending out emails to our graduating seniors, alerting them to positions or opportunities that I learn of that might be of interest to them. I decided to keep a running list of these, even though the positions will eventually be filled and the announcements will be out of date, because the list itself may be of interest to other Psych majors as they think ahead to their future job searches.

in the position.  =D
