Vocational Interests of Non-Professional Women. Final Report.
Campbell, David P.; Harmon, Lenore W.
This study has provided interest inventory scales for use in vocational counseling of non-college women. Two questions were investigated: (1) Do women who enter different occupations at this level have different patterns of interest, and (2) What are these patterns of interest? The Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB) women's form, and a two-page questionnaire were the instruments used on samples selected from 17 occupational groups by criteria aims to provide successful, satisfied women from each occupation. The samples were usually drawn from rosters furnished by the relevant national organizations. The responses of each occupation to the SVIB were used to construct empirical scales. For each occupation, the scale contained the items that those women endorsed substantially more often than women in general. All of these scales successfully separated the groups from women in general and from each other. Thus, the main conclusion was that vocational interest inventory scales for these occupations should be useful in advising women looking for occupational possibilities. Copies of all the instruments used are included. (MU)
