Planned and Unplanned Aspects of Occupational Choices by Youth. Final Report.
Ellis, Robert A.; And Others
This document includes reports on four subjects relevant to planned and unplanned aspects of occupational choices by youth. (1) "Toward a Morphology of Occupational Choice," by Robert A. Ellis and others, discusses intrinsic features and extrinsic rewards of work, extra-role considerations, and goal perception as major influences on occupational choice by youth. (2) "Development of an Instrument of Measuring Occupational Information," is by Martin H. Acker and Theodore J. Goldman. The Occupational Information Survey consists of three tasks: a 5-minute listing of job titles, a 5-minute listing of job activities, and a 20-minute matching of job titles and job activities. (3) "Religion and Occupational Preference," Benton Johnson, editor, explores the relationship between religious involvement and the occupational orientations of teenagers, and includes a paper entitled "Do Boys Attend Better Colleges Than Girls?" (4) "Family and Occupational Choice," by Roy H. Rodgers and R. Brooke Jacobsen, investigated the intra-family socialization process with respect to work roles. (CH)
