APA's Early Career Psychologists Survey

The American Psychological Association's Committee on Early Career Psychologists (CECP) seeks to understand and address the needs of early career psychologists (seven years since receipt of doctorate). We feel that it is imperative to hear directly from you regarding the unique challenges or barriers you may face as an early career psychologist. This survey will provide the committee with data on those challenges and will help us identify and create initiatives targeting the areas that are most important to you.

The survey is administered through APA's Center for Workforce Studies. Please email Ariel Finno or call (800) 374-2721 extension 5980 if you have any questions.  You may also email the Center for Workforce Studies.
