Career Survey of 135 Ph.D. Recipients in Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology: University of Minnesota Graduates Between 1952 and 1972.
Warsett, Susan L.
The purpose of the study was to ascertain (1) the types of jobs the graduates possessed and (2) the relationships between previous employment or formal education and current employment. The factors most significantly related to one's present job were college employment, whether one's psychological base learned during the respondent's academic preparation was applied, and preceding job. The year the Ph.D. was granted was significantly related to one's first job; less than 33% of those who graduated prior to 1964 began in the fields of college counseling and counselor education, but of those who received their Ph.D.s in 1964-1972, more than 50% began in these fields. Almost 50% of the 1952-1963 graduates began their careers as either professors, student personnel administrators, or researchers, but these three fields were the start for only 15% of the graduates of the later time span. The number of fields responsible for the graduates' first job increased with the passage of time, showing that these people are entering a more diverse set of positions. (Author)
