what can I do with a bachelor degree in psychology, living in Atlanta Georgia?
I've recently moved to Atlanta and have a bachelor degree in psychology. I've been stuck working a receptionist job for the last 3 1/2 months. I'm trying to find a job in my field, I've looked everywhere at least I think I have. I want something in mental health, or adolescent detention center.
