Occupational Expectations--Nature, Correlates, and Utilization in Occupational Education.
Hofstrand, Richard K.; Phipps, Lloyd J.
To gain greatest meaning and satisfaction from their work activities, persons should be able to more accurately identify and define their feelings, attitudes, and values related to the world of work. An expanded and enhanced understanding of occupational expectations on the part of career counselors would help in working with youth and adults who are facing the problems of career choice or rechoice. The Occupational Expectations Inventory developed in this study is offered as a device for diagnosing and clarifying expectations, values, and ethics. The study involved the identification of types or components of occupational expectations, the evolution of a classification system for those expectations, and an assessment of occupational expectations based on the likelihood of a specific occupational expectation resulting from an occupation and the desirability and importance of that expectation, and the correlation of those values with certain other factors such as social class, high school curriculum, sex, and other variables.
