4 Ways to Tailor Your Practicum Experiences

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is youer than you! – Dr. Seuss

There are many lessons I learned from Dr. Seuss: try new things, respect others, and know that making mistakes helps you grow. When I look back over my graduate school career, I have no doubt that I went right along with the Doctor’s orders. I was true to myself and tailored each year of my practicum experiences to cater to my strengths and interests.

As a result, I was able to stand out on my internship applications and develop an area of specialization as an early career psychologist.

With this article, I hope to impart some knowledge and suggestions that may help you on that path in tailoring your training experiences and building a competitive CV.
