An Investigation of the Vocational Behavior of Selected Women Vocational Education Students.
Bailey, Larry Joe
To determine the applicability of Super's vocational development theory for explaining the vocational behavior of selected young practical nursing students during the exploration vocational life stage, data were drawn from instruments previously administered to 485 students enrolled in a parent study. Data analysis revealed that the early part of the exploration stage was characterized by "exploration,""tentativeness," and reality testing, and the actual implemented occupational preference was the result of a compromise among work interest, work values, and reality factors. In general, the young women tended to emerge through the exploration stage as outlined by Super. However, the indications were that women's vocational behavior differed significantly enough from that of men to warrent additional theoretical considerations. The study provided partial verification of the relationship of success in coping with vocational developmental tasks to success with subsequent tasks. (Author/SB)
