Hinton, Christa G.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, DePaul University
The purpose of the present study was to quantitatively examine the relationships between employability and hope. Using a sample of 266 Master of Business Administration students at a large Midwestern private university, this study hypothesized that one, there was a relationship between hope and employability and two, of the predictor variables, agency was more likely than pathways to predict employability. Results indicated that there is a correlational relationship between hope and employability. Regression analysis revealed that agency predicts employability. Implications for career professionals include the ability to enhance employability through increasing hope, increasing the motivation to reach career goals through the careful selection of goals that are best suited to the individual, and increasing student/client employability through enhancing the career professional's level of hope.
