How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hey @kp, this is my answer to the best of my ability. Since psychology is related to child life studies, you can launch your career right after you earn your bachelor's degree. But to really secure a job as a Child Life Specialist, you have to show your employer that you're experienced with children and have the attributes of a successful specialist. You can do that by getting an internship while you're still in college. The internship should be a Child Life Specialist internship and you should log at least 500 hours of experience. You can also volunteer at daycares, child facilities, and schools to advance your experience. I hope this helped and if you're still a rising high schooler, it won't hurt if you take a couple of psychology courses to better prepare you for your career pathway. Thanks!
