Of course it depends on the job. But if you interview well; if you are smart and can persuade me you're a hard worker; if you can write and speak clearly; if you show me that you can do a good job...then it doesn't matter if you "only" have a psychology degree.

That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold."
