Early Career Psychologists

NJPA recognizes the unique interests and concerns of early career psychologists — that is, those who have received their doctoral degree within the past ten years.  Join the NJPA Early Career Listserv dedicated to the needs of early career psychologists. Call Central Office at 973-243-9800 to make sure you are on the list!

The purpose of the Early Career Psychologist Committee is to (1) promote the needs of permit holders and early career psychologists, (2) strengthen the representation of permit holders and early career psychologists in NJPA, (3) support and expand resources for permit holders and early career psychologists within New Jersey, and (5) raise the consciousness of NJPA members and New Jersey psychologists about issues of diversity that specifically impact permit holders and early career psychologists.
