[PhD Alumni  2012-13]
"The Department of Social Psychology helped shape my thinking in a way that has allowed me to apply my understanding of society to every aspect of my life. I have found it particularly relevant to the work I currently do in social research.

In this regard, I feel that the careers event is a brilliant space for students to find out how they can apply what they have learned to a range of sectors. It provides a platform to ground the Psychology@LSE's teachings with direct experiences of alumni in the labour market in an accessible and open way."
