Improving Career Self-Efficacy in Emerging Adults with Limited Life Experiences.
Lewis, Lea Beth; Schneider, Monica H.; Sham-Choy, Claire
The purpose of this investigation was to explore the implications of self efficacy beliefs on the career planning process among emerging adults in the 17-20 age bracket who have had limited life experiences. An objective for the coursework in personal and career exploration was to expose students, new to the college experience, to methods for identifying and achieving successful academic and career goals. Throughout such courses, numerous tasks and exercises expect identification with self and future self-schemas. By improving the methodology of validating life experiences, the researchers are attempting to show that self efficacy can be positively influenced, leading to a boost in self efficacy that can contribute to improved goal setting and goal attainment.
