OP Masters degrees provide a steady stream of talented and highly-motivated graduates, yet so many struggle to find their feet when joining the world of work.
This is why we created the Emerging Occ Psychs initiative.
We want to support these individuals by developing their understanding and skillsets in ways that will ease their transition into employment.
Our goal is to create an online community that will provide interested individuals with the resources and support to develop professionally.
The 2020/2021 EOP Cohort will run for 9 consecutive months from October 2020.
The EOP uses a 2-tier system for Mentees:
‘Gold-level’ Mentees receive free access to all content provided by the EOP initiative, including access to panel discussions, webinars and workshops.
‘Platinum-level’ Mentees receive all the benefits of Gold level, but are also paired with an EOP Champion. This will involve a private monthly 1-on-1 call between the Champion and their Mentee.
Requirements to be an EOP Mentee
To be an EOP Gold-level Mentee, you must…
- Have graduated^ from an OP* or OP-related Masters degree course in the last 4 years
- Be willing to engage with the wider EOP community through online discussions, literature recommendations, and a blog piece
To be an EOP Platinum-level Mentee, you must also…
- Be able to attend a monthly one-on-one remotely-conducted mentoring session with your assigned Champion at a time and date suitable for both parties
Please note: there are a small number of EOP Champions, so platinum-level places are limited. If you apply for a platinum-level place (after meeting the requirements outlined above) and we cannot pair you with an EOP Champion, you will automatically be offered a gold-level place.
If you meet the requirements outlined above and would like to apply to be a gold- or platinum-level mentee, simply complete the short survey by clicking the button below:
* Please note – OP is an abbreviation of the term ‘Occupational Psychologist’. Whilst more commonly used in the UK, other terms are also used in the UK and internationally. These include (but are not limited to) ‘Business Psychologist’, ‘Organisational Psychologist’, ‘Work Psychologist’, and ‘Industrial/Organizational Psychologist’. If you professionally identify as any of these groups, you are just as welcome to take part in the EOP!
^ If you are about to start an OP masters course in 2020, you are welcome to apply to the 2020/2021 EOP cohort as a ‘Gold’ member, in addition to applying for platinum membership next year!
