No Experience Necessary
Question by distrought: What kind of job can I do that is correlated to my future career as a psychologist?
I am 16 and currently work at a fast food restaurant. I want to study psychology and be a Christian counselor when i graduate. Are there any jobs or possible intern opportunities that might could help me on that path? Thank you. 🙂

Very sorry to hear that anyone has sold you on the idea that Psychology and Christianity can be compatible. The two “ologies” are in fact diametrically opposed to each other.
There are no (real) Christian Psychologists. One is either a Christian (Christ follower) or into Psychology, not both. To be involved really with both is to be “a double-minded man” which is the only common denominator between the two, aka Schizophranic (split mind) according to Psych-babblists.
But being 16 means you have plenty of time to choose which way you can to go with your career; with Christ or with Psychology.
