A survey of 53 graduates of industrial and organizational psychology masters programs, from the four universities in New Zealand offering such programs (Auckland, Canterbury, Massey, Waikato), was conducted to explore their early career experiences. The survey confirms that industrial and organizational psychology graduates are reasonably successful in establishing careers within the discipline with most graduates working in related fields. Recommendations for students pursuing careers and universities offering such programs are suggested. The information derived from this study is potentially of benefit to future graduates and others who may be considering a career in the field of industrial and organizational psychology, and to the convenors of the respective university programs.
