For the last four years I worked for a consulting firm, helping on big change projects (e.g.M&As, introducing new IT systems, organisation redesigns). My team made sure that employees knew what was going on and were able to respond to effectively to these changes, so insights from the behavioural sciences were obviously of real value. I'm currently doing a masters at the LSE in organisational and social psychology. It's great to have the time to really get stuck in to the behavioural science literature, and read some of those books that have been on the bedside table a while...
Personally, I'm always interested in discussing and learning more about how and why we behave as we do. And I think that insights from the behavioural sciences can be a great help for any job involving interaction with other people... so basically every job.
