In the last couple of years, I realized I have an interest in

psychology. While researching in English, a career stood out to me:

clinical psychology. I have always been curious about the medical

field, so, combining psychology with the medical field caught my

attention. A clinical psychologist is someone who administers and

interprets cognitive and personality tests, diagnoses mental illnesses,

creates treatment plans and conducts psychotherapy to individuals,

couples, or families. Throughout my life, mental illnesses and learning

how the brain works in strange ways has always intrigued me. This

I-Search project has helped me in some many mays. I realized what I

might possibly do when I become an adult and it has made me realize

the true importance of high school and college.

To start my resume, I began to go more in depth to find out

what a person needs to pursue a career in clinical psychology. A

website, Learn How To Become, recognized the fact that in order to

become a clinical psychologist (in most cases) you need a doctoral

degree, clinical training, and a license. Finding out that you need a

doctoral degree made me realize that becoming a clinical psychologist

takes a lot of hard work and time. For my experiences, I researched

jobs that are open to licensed psychologists in California. While

researching these jobs, I found that there is a wide range of places

where they need clinical psychologists. Some jobs were at hospitals

and others were at colleges. When I had to list my skills on the resume,

I researched what employers looked for in licensed psychologists

which helped me better understand the psychology business.

The person I chose to contact is a professor at one of the

colleges I wish to go to in my future, San Diego State University.

Linda Gallo is a professor of psychology, a core faculty member in the

SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in clinical psychology, an

adjunct professor in the Graduate School of Public Health, a

co-director (with Dr. Greg Talavera) of the South Bay Latino Research

Center, and a core investigator of IBACH. Gallo received her Ph.D. in

clinical/health psychology from the University of Utah in 1998. After

completing a postdoctoral fellowship in cardiovascular behavioral

medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, she joined the faculty of San

Diego State University in 2001. Another reason I chose to contact

Gallo was that her research intrigues me.

I was extremely disappointed when I didn’t hear back from

Linda Gallo because I was hoping to learn more about learning about

clinical psychology in college and what the job itself is like. If I had

received an email back, I had planned on asking her questions about

what lead her to pursue her career in teaching clinical psychology,

what it is like to work as a clinical psychologist, what classes I should

be taking, and what I should do in order to prepare myself going into

the workforce as a clinical psychologist. Also, I wanted to know how

she defines a clinical psychologist. In the end, if I had the opportunity

to ask Linda Gallo one thing, I would ask for advice on what I should

be doing now, in my high school years, to prepare for a job like clinical

psychology. Although I am saddened that a woman that works at one

of my dream colleges did not respond to me, I am glad that I learned

about how to successfully put together a resume and learn about

clinical psychology.
