How can industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology practitioners gain wider recognition for their accomplishments? The bottom-line: You should compile and publicize information about the impact of your work in real-world organizations, including your success in persuading organizational leaders to view I-O Psychologists as trusted experts. Then, leverage that information in an application for Fellow status in the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP)! Recently, HumRRO’s Cheryl Paullin provided tips for crafting a strong practitioner Fellow submission in SIOP’s official newsletter The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist.
