Mostly, the jobs you acquire depend on your experience and expertise in the specific field. For becoming a chartered psychologist, you need to get postgraduate training and higher study. This is because of the course entry requirements. Experience buildup is mandatory and vital. Because to get a good job you need to work on a volunteer ship and then ultimately you will get a paid job.
In a nutshell, for becoming a good psychologist and to get jobs with a psychology degree, you need to have experience and expertise in the field.
