  • Work volition and academic satisfaction in Chinese female college
           students: the moderating role of incremental theory of work volition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to examine longitudinal effect whether work volition is associated with academic satisfaction, and test the moderating effect of implicit theories about work volition on this association among female college students in Chinese (N = 586). Results indicated that work volition was positively associated with academic satisfaction, and this link was stronger for those with an incremental theory than those with an entity theory. These results provide an insight into understanding the link between work volition and academic satisfaction that is underpinned by integrated two psychology theories including the psychology of working theory and social-cognition theory. The implications and limitations are discussed.

  • The Career Decision-Making Adaptability Score: Exploration and validation
           of its predictive power for subjective and objective career success

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study aims at validating the Career Decision-Making Adaptability Score (CDA Score) by investigating its predictive influence on objective and subjective career success, career adaptability, and psychological well-being over a 1-year period. Furthermore, the predictive influence of additional career decision-making strategies was scrutinized. Regression analyses of data from 78 employed individuals from two measurement time points demonstrated that the CDA Score predicts yet unexplored variables (e.g., psychological well-being) and consulting with others contributes to career adaptability and satisfaction. The findings extend research on career decision-making, validate the CDA Score longitudinally, and offer directions for the design of career counseling services.

  • The Brazilian Portuguese adaptation of Protean Career Orientation Scale:
           invariance, correlates, and life/career stages

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The protean career orientation is descriptive of workers who show self-directedness and values-driven behaviors toward professional advancement. Such characteristics have been highly demanded from professionals in the past decades, evidencing their identification and development relevance. Considering that identifying construct structure and invariance is critical for effective measurement and both theory-building and practice, this study aimed to adapt and obtain internal and external validity evidence of the Protean Career Measure to the Brazilian context. Participants were 558 professionals (67% women). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses resulted in a unidimensional model. They provided evidence of configural, metric, and scalar invariance between men and women. Also, they showed convergence between the protean career orientation and career models based on other characteristics (kaleidoscope, adaptability, and work engagement). Finally, results showed that the protean orientation tends to be higher, according to the participants’ life/career stages’ advancement. We discuss the application for research and interventions.

  • Validating the implicit theory of work scale: focusing on its role on
           career-related behaviors and affect in Korean undergraduates

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To investigate individuals’ implicit beliefs—underlying assumptions about the self and the world—the present study validated the Korean version of the implicit theory of work scale for undergraduates, exploring its role in career-related behaviors and affect. The study used two different samples of 560 and 340 undergraduates who participated in an online survey. The validity evidence of the scale was as follows: (1) The content of domains and items was appropriate for measuring implicit belief in work among Korean undergraduates; (2) a two-factor model with destiny belief and growth belief was confirmed by factor analysis; and (3) higher levels of destiny belief were related to higher levels of entity belief in intelligence and lower levels of incremental belief in intelligence, flexibility in career belief, and curiosity in career adaptability, whereas higher levels of growth belief showed the opposite patterns. The validated scale also showed the distinctive role of destiny and growth belief.

  • Perceived procedural justice and psychological flourishing among mental
           health professionals in Macao: a moderated mediation model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to examine whether and how organizational factors (i.e., procedural justice) are associated with psychological flourishing, an optimal mental state. Path analysis was conducted among 195 Chinese mental health professionals (females = 69%; Mean age = 30 years) in Macao, and results showed that emotional exhaustion partially mediated the positive association between procedural justice and psychological flourishing, whereas emotion regulation significantly diminished the effects of procedural injustice on emotional exhaustion. Our findings highlight the emotional mechanisms underlying the influence of organizational procedures on employees’ wellbeing, and wellness programs for enhancing employees’ emotional regulation skills are recommended.

  • How long can I wait and how much frustration can I stand' Volitional
           traits and students’ PhD-intention and pursuit

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of the present investigation is to analyze the relation of frustration tolerance and delay of gratification with PhD-intention and expectations. We conducted one correlational and two experimental studies. In Study 1 (N1 = 171 undergraduates), we found the hypothesized positive association between delay of gratification and frustration tolerance and the intention to obtain a PhD. In Studies 2 and 3, we used experimental vignette designs. In Study 2, doctoral students and postdocs (N2 = 180) evaluated a fictitious student regarding PhD-intention and a successful PhD-process. As expected, students with high gratification delay and frustration tolerance were judged as more likely to start and complete a PhD than students described low in these volitional traits. In Study 3, we contrasted Study 2’s findings by asking employees of the private sector (N3 = 150) to rate the same students’ intention to join a company instead. None of the factors influenced participants’ judgments when it comes to a non-academic career track.

  • The predictors of Turkish youth’s career planning: trait emotional
           intelligence, cognitive flexibility, and resilience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Having effective career planning attitudes is a significant psychological resource for dealing with occupational burdens, unanticipated conflicts, and ambivalences in business area. The major purpose of the study was to reveal whether Turkish undergraduates’ career planning attitudes were shaped by their trait emotional intelligence, cognitive flexibility, and resilience levels, or not. Two hundred forty-four undergraduates in a private university participated in the study. Revised Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale, Cognitive Flexibility Inventory, and Resilience Scale were used to figure out the predictive roles of these variables on career construction skills (career adaptability, career optimism, and perceived knowledge about job market) measured by Career Futures Inventory. Multivariate regression analysis showed that trait emotional intelligence, cognitive flexibility, and resilience were pivotal predictors of Turkish youth’s career construction deeds. The findings are essential for Turkish career counselors to consider how Turkish undergraduates’ career development can be facilitated by focusing on these resources.

  • Practitioners’ vocational guidance with direct learning model:
           influencing career commitment and employability in electrical/electronic
           technology education

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the effects of vocational guidance with a direct learning model on university students’ career commitment and employability skills via career learning self-efficacy. Participants (N = 214) were electrical/electronic technology education students drawn from two universities in Nigeria. A two-group quasi-experimental design with a three-wave survey was adopted. Results revealed increased career commitment making, identification with commitment, perceived future employability skills, and career learning self-efficacy among the intervention group compared to those in the control group. Increase in career learning self-efficacy mediated identification with commitment, but not career commitment making and perceived future employability skills.

      Abstract: Abstract This study examined the future perceptions of Israeli and Hong Kong young adults focusing on three aspects: (a) time horizon (how far into the future participants envision), (b) future life roles on which they focus, and (c) emotions towards their perceived future. Twenty students took part in semi-structured interviews. Israeli participants reported a narrower range of time horizon. Both samples mentioned four domains when envisioning their future: work, relationships, education, and leisure. Both Israeli and Hong Kong participants were similar in their emotions towards their perceived future, although Israeli participants were overall more positive. Research and practice implications are discussed.

  • “If I won the lottery…”: work orientations of low-qualified young
           adults in Albania and Switzerland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A qualitative study was carried out to portray the work orientations of 30 low-qualified working young adults in two contrasted economies: Albania and Switzerland. The analysis of their answers to the “lottery question” showed that most participants would continue to work, either to be busy, feed a passion, feel useful, or grow. In contrast to participants from Switzerland, Albanian participants would more easily modify some aspects of their work. Globally, findings reveal that participants’ current situations tend to differ from what they expect from work, which impacts the quality of their work integration and has critical implications for career counseling.

  • Relations between graduates’ learning experiences and employment
           outcomes: a cautionary note for institutional performance indicators

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Higher education broadly assumes a conceptual link between generic skills and employability. We accessed a large sample of data collected by the Australian Government to investigate whether the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) subscales Good Teaching (GTS), Graduate Skills (GSS), and Graduate Qualities (GQS) predicted graduates’ employment status, overall course satisfaction, and decisions to take further studies. GTS was found to predict graduates’ overall course satisfaction; however, GSS and GQS scales combined predicted negligible increases in employment outcomes. Our findings highlight the imperative for higher education leaders to critically examine discourse about the link between employability skills and employment outcomes.

  • Brief motivational interviewing training for teachers providing career
           services in Turkey: A pilot study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This mixed-methods pilot study examined the effectiveness of brief motivational interviewing (MI) training on middle school teachers’ efficacy in providing career services to socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Forty-five teachers (55% men) received a six-hour training on the career-development needs of middle school students and MI techniques. Quantitative results indicated a significant effect of training on teachers’ sense of efficacy regarding student engagement. Qualitative data indicated teachers’ increased sense of efficacy in providing career services and their personal and professional development. These results imply that MI can be effective in supporting teachers’ competencies and can motivate students of low socioeconomic status.

  • Career history and career identity: antecedents of job-field
           underemployment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The current article deals with the antecedents that generate a phenomenon of a mismatch between an academic graduates' field of education and their occupational field (horizontal mismatch). The two examined antecedents were the individuals' career history and their "career identity" level. It has been found that (a) the more expansive the individual's layoff history, the greater their horizontal mismatch level, and (b) the higher the individual's career identity level, the lower their horizontal mismatch level. This emphasizes the importance for academic individuals regarding investing in specific competencies, skills, and abilities throughout their career, to aid in career success.

  • The route to employability: a longitudinal study on a sample of Italian
           job seekers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to examine the main predictors of employability, building on a recent conceptual model on employability developed by Lo Presti and Pluviano (Organ Psychol Rev 6(2): 192–211, 2016). Survey based data were collected from a sample of 263 Italian job-seekers through a longitudinal study. The results revealed that employability was more strongly determined by personal dispositions than by external factors, such as life circumstances and that the variables with the most impact were proactive personality, core self-evaluations, and educational level, rather than employability culture, family employability support, and previous work experience. The paper reveals an understanding of the relative importance of antecedents that determine employability.

      Abstract: Abstract This comparative study traces the foundation and development of vocational and career guidance services in three Central and Eastern European countries in the light of the contextually bound factors of this region. Since the beginning of the 20th century, political transitions and changes in the ruling structures in these countries were so frequent that the same generation was often confronted with multiple forms of governance: the rule of ‘König und Kaiser’, the monarchy, the communist regime, neoliberal economic policies with mass privatisation, membership of the European Union.

  • Using the self-directed search in the career construction interview

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Issues related to modern and post-modern approaches to career assessment and counseling are evident in the literature, as are ideas on how to build on and combine techniques. Although Holland’s theoretical interventions can appear to conflict with career construction counseling due to their bases in modern and post-modern philosophy, respectively, we examine how aspects of the Self-Directed Search (SDS), based on Holland’s RIASEC theory, can be operationalized in relation to the principal ideas and practices in the career construction interview. We discuss how SDS items can enable clients to tell their career story and practical applications to the life-design paradigm.

  • Assisting athletes facing career transitions post-injury

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract After facing a career-ending injury, athletes are often unprepared to find new occupations. With their identities and goals so deeply rooted in athletics from a young age, many athletes have not shown interest in or been educated in other fields of work. Additionally, physical and psychological trauma caused by injury and career-loss can impede the abilities to realistically perceive skills and limitations when considering new career paths. The current article identifies and discusses major issues faced by career-transitioning athletes post-injury and applies two theories, Social Cognitive Career Theory and Cochran’s Narrative Theory, to career counselling methods for this population.

  • A multivariate discriminant analysis of university students’ career
           decisions based on career adaptability, social support, academic major
           relevance, and university life satisfaction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Career adaptability and its four sub-factors (concern, control, curiosity, and confidence) are helpful in understanding students’ career choices and decisions. A sample of 1,297 university students in Seoul, South Korea, participated in this study. Among them, 728 students (56.13%) had already made their career decision, while 569 (43.87%) had not. A multivariate discriminant analysis was carried out to identify its significance in discriminating students’ career decisions after the execution of two factor analyses to verify construct validity. We concluded that the multivariate function was appropriate for discriminating students’ career decision status, and its predictive accuracy was relatively high based on canonical correlation (.37) and Wilks’ lambda (.87). Career concern was identified as the most discriminate variable.
