Students Promoting Industrial Organizational Psychology, a registered student organization that focuses in aiding students interested in futures in industrial organizational psychology, will be hosting a speaker event from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 in Edwards Hall, room 112.

“Our speakers are Dr. Stacy Ballinger, who is in charge of internships and co-ops for FGCU, and Dr. Terence Leary, who is a psychology professor and our club sponsor,” said SPIOP Vice President Kelsey Hawker via email. “They are speaking about internship/co-op opportunities and career fields in psychology.”

The event is open to anybody interested in psychology to attend.

Industrial organizational psychology is a field that focuses on applying psychological theories to studies of workplace behaviors, including factors such as motivation and stress.

SPIOP has hosted several speaker events throughout past semesters, including one on the link between I-D psychology and human resources hosted by Leary, one on graduate school and one on internship and career opportunities.
