So you want to be an Occupational Psychologist? Who to follow on Twitter

Twitter 2A big part of getting into the industry of occupational psychology is knowing who the movers and shakers are in the first place.  Who should you put on your hit list, and whose radar do you want to try and get onto?

Without meaning to show my age, the advent of the digital era has made things much easier.  Think “…In my day there were no tinterweb, no Google search, avatars, or such like”!

I couldn’t put ‘occupational psychology’ into a search engine and see what comes up.  I couldn’t “follow” a company on Twitter or LinkedIn.  These social platforms just didn’t exist!

The irony is that even though this technology has now has been around for a while, it can still be difficult to find and make those connections.  We are a small community but still sufficiently scattered to cause getting to know your fellow Occ Psychs a challenge.

So in the spirit of helping make those connections here is a directory of  Occupational Psychology businesses on Twitter.  The criteria for making this list was that they are UK based, describe themselves ‘occupational/business psychologists’ and are a company rather than an individual, i.e. they could be potential employers.

I am well aware that this isn’t a definitive list.  There may well be occupational psychology employers on Twitter that I don’t know about.  There are also some noticeable gaps where well known consultancies still aren’t on Twitter yet, i.e. Kaisen and TalentQ.

If you are an employer of Occupational/Business Psychologists and would like to be listed, please add your company and Twitter name in the comments section.  I will then aim to update this list every other month.
