Why kind of jobs can you get with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology?
I will be graduating in December and don't plan on going on to graduate school, at least not for awhile. I want to use my degree but am having a hard time coming up with possible career opportunities. I was thinking Human Resources may be interesting but without a business degree I'm afraid that I may have a difficult time getting hired. Any advice will help!!! I was originally planning on pursuing a master's but recently decided against it because I feel like I need a break from school and also I don't have the money.

To be honest, not much. I have one and it's only mildly interesting to people. Combine it with another degree or course of study and it might be useful to someone. Talk to people who are doing jobs you like, and ask their advice. Good luck!

The most common occupation is probably a psychologist but with just a psychology degree in tow, it's not much in comparison to numerous others with the same degree. You should've added a double major and/or minor to increase your competitiveness... More

Honestly your options are somewhat limited, BUT not hopeless by any stretch. HR is a possibility I suppose but you are painted into a corner. You could be a life coach or possibly something related to a school adviser/counselor.I would check out the career center on your campus and see what recruiters have to say and... More

There are many occupations which are looking for people with degrees. You'll have to check job searches to find one. For your particular degree social work is aptly open to you, if jobs are available. You might also want to check into HMO's.
