background
Background
  • Career choices are hypothesized to be based on a combination of variables that include vocational interests, skills, personality, perceived abilities, and work values.
  • Development of these dimensions (i.e. interests, skills, values) is partially dependent on a host of additional predictor variables, including gender, environmental supports and barriers, family influences, ability, racial/ethnic, and sexual identity.
  • History of Census
sample

  • White (56%)

  • Asian American (15%)
  • Latino/a American (8%)
  • Males (@ 50%)
  • Females (@ 50%)

Conclusions: Career Decision Profile and Work Values
discussion questions
Discussion Questions
  • Early Major Decidedness vs. Major Exploration?
  • From what or where does a “Calling” arise?
  • Is the idea of a “Career” outmoded in today’s zeitgeist?
  • Is attaining a “Career” equally probable for marginalized socio-demographic groups?
  • Implications for Career Counseling?
slide17
Gender Differences may be due to differential socialization experiences.
  • Women tend to have a more relational orientation and are thus more likely to value cooperation and community.
  • Men tend to have a less relational orientation and are thus more likely to value autonomy, and independence.
slide18
Racial and gender barriers in the education system and world of work implicate fewer opportunities for members of marginalized groups.
  • Marginalized students who overcome educational and career barriers and enter a university have done so because they are more clear in their career choice at the onset (more goal oriented).
  • Educational and occupational role models for majority students are of greater breadth. Education and the world of work is more segregated for women and people of color.
