Occupational Aspirations of Adolescent Females.
Burlin, Frances-Dee
The purpose of this paper was to present findings from a study that investigated the ideal and real occupational aspirations (classified as Innovative, Moderate, or Traditional) among adolescent females with respect to locus of control and other social and psychological variables, e.g., parental education, mother's work and occupational status. Innovative occupations are those in which fewer than 30% of the workers are women; Moderate occupations are those in which 30-50% of the workers are women; and Traditional occupations are those in which more than 50% of the workers are women. The results of this study suggest that many adolescent girls are influenced by external and/or environmental cues in their real occupational aspirations. (Author/NG)
