Picou, J. Steven; And Others
The monograph reviews theoretical, conceptual, and empirical research on occupational choice and achievement. It begins by delineating the major macro-theoretical approaches in occupational sociology and vocational psychology, leading to a consideration of conceptual development of occupational choice. An overview of status attainment models and a perspective on the significance of status attainment literature, in terms of significant other influence, concludes the monograph. In the concluding section are comments on theoretical and conceptual convergence, career development and the life cycle, and needed research in these areas. Eight figures, two tables, and ten pages of references are provided. (MF)
