Take advantage of our private LinkedIn group, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages. This is the fastest way to benefit from Psi Chi’s international reach. Also, be sure to log in at psichi.org to update your personal profile information.

Participate With Your Chapter

As a lifetime member, you are encouraged to attend your chapter’s meetings and special events. Many chapters maintain a list of contacts specifically so alumni can stay up to date. If your chapter does not have such a list, then suggest that they create one. Maintaining relationships with your chapter will introduce you to the latest generation of excellent students and inform you about recent psychology advancements.

Become a Guest Speaker

As an alumnus, you have graduated and moved on into the working world. This means that you have undoubtedly acquired unique skills and have plenty of advice that undergraduate and graduate members are eager to hear. Consider reaching out to your local chapter’s advisor to see if you could become a guest speaker.

Conduct Research
Contact Psi Chi students and faculty members to ask them to coauthor research with you. This is an excellent way to reinsert yourself into the psychology field and make new connections.

Become a Faculty Mentor
If you have received your PhD and teach at a four-year university or college, consider becoming a faculty advisor.
Learn what Psi Chi faculty mentors do and why they like their roles so much. Don't have a chapter are your new institution? Learn how to start a chapter.

Increase Your Visibility
Did you know that you can advertise your products, services, and open positions in Eye on Psi Chi magazine, Psi Chi Journal, Psi Chi Digest e-mails, and on the Psi Chi website? We are unmatched when it comes to our unique niche of young professionals entering the field of psychology. View our advertising rate sheets.
