Four years of undergrad. Five years (or more) of graduate school. Postdocs. We’re talking a minimum of 10 years from start to finish in order to become a Licensed Psychologist! If you’re like me, you are paying your tuition and school expenses largely through student loans, whether federally funded or private loans. Each year, that number keeps adding up. What was once a small hill has now formed into a mountain of debt! And once you’re no longer a student, that mountain looms over you as you begin a required low repayment plan. But what can a student do? Here are seven tips from my recent experience as a 29-year-old early career psychologist.Continue Reading
If you’ve been using MyPsychTrack to log your hours but are considering switching to Time2Track, we’ve made it easy for you to import the data you’ve already logged.

Applying for internship can be a daunting task, especially if you’re applying through APPIC. The APPIC Application for Psychology Internships, or the AAPI, is used by doctoral level psychology students to obtain an APA accredited internship or APPIC accredited internship.
The AAPI requires applicants to report a large amount of somewhat complicated data, and it can be quite confusing figuring out what goes where.
At Time2Track, we’ve spent an exorbitant amount of time scouring the AAPI (and its instructions) to make sure we’re providing the right information in the correct format. The AAPI instructions can be confusing too, so we’ve pulled out the parts that are often overlooked, and hopefully that will explain a little more about how our calculations (and APPIC’s requirements) work.Continue Reading

The Time2Track Activities List view is just what it sounds like. Instead of viewing your activities in the Calendar, you can see them in a list. Just by showing you your activities in this way, it allows us to provide some pretty powerful tools to work with your data. Here are 5 ways you can use the Activities List.Continue Reading
