For graduate students especially, it can be helpful in getting you the job you’re looking for. For one, joining your local state association looks great on your resume. You’ll also make connections with other school psychologists who may be able to put in a good word for you at the school you’re interested in. Additionally, other school psychologists will likely be able to answer your questions about what it’s like to work in a particular school or school district.
