Career Choice and Change in High-Ability Young Women.
Vidulich, Robert N.; And Others
This paper briefly summarizes four years of research on career decisions in a large sample (997) of high-ability women. The research focused on career choice and career choice change in these young women during the time when these decisions were being made. A variety of background questions were included in the survey instrument, including family size, high school size, socio-economic background, parents' educational attainments and sex-role atypicality of the mothers' occupations. Results indicate: (1) change in career planning is common in these women; (2) the extent of change varies by the area of early career choice; and (3) changes in original career decisions typically occur early in college.
