Cultural Value Orientation, Family Expectations, and Career Development.
Hartung, Paul J.; Fouad, Nadya A.; Leong, Frederick T. L.; Hardin, Erin
Inquiry into the influence of cultural context variables on vocational behavior remains a primary research need in vocational psychology. Responding to this need, individualism-collectivism (I-C) constructs were examined as an individual differences cultural context variable relative to: (1) fit and consistency of expressed occupational choice with reported occupational planning attitudes and behaviors; (2) work values; and (3) family background and expectations of 268 college students representing various racial-ethnic groups in the United States. Participants responded to the INDCOL scale, the Occupational Plans Questionnaire, the Work Values Inventory, and a work and family questionnaire constructed for the present study. Results indicated some significant albeit low to moderate relationships between I-C and various scales of the career-related measures. (Contains 39 references.) (Author/GCP)
